“Our company has never been as hard-hit as it was by the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks in New York and Washington,” the 55-year-old Elsener says.

Who invented the deo as we know it?

An unknown inventor from Philadelphia, USA developed a wax-like cream with slightly antibacterial zinc oxide in 1888. This was the birth of the first deodorant worldwide.

Guess the book? Answer here.

The Russians are crazy!

Before they climb the launch tower to board the Soyuz capsule that will take them into space, cosmonauts take a moment to stop at the right rear tire of the bus set to drive them to the launch site and … relieve themselves. No, really. Here’s a safe-for-work (though a bit crude) photo of the deed being done.
