Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

Related: while it's not common today, at the time, presidents were often referred to as His/Your Excellency.

Since John Tyler was the first president to simply fall into the office, he was often referred to as "Your Accidency". A nearly 200 year old sniglet.

Fun Fact: John Tyler, the 10th President of the U. S., was born in 1790 when George Washington was President. As of 2017, two of Tyler's grandchildren (Harrison R. Tyler and Lyon G. Tyler, Jr.) are still living.

Related Fun Fact: Tyler was Vice President when President William Henry Harrison died only a few weeks into his term. The Constitution as originally adopted did not explicitly state that the Vice President became President in case of death, only that the presidential powers were to "devolve" upon the VP. Throughout Tyler's one-term presidency he was hounded by criticism that he was only an acting President and not actually The President.
