Fun Fact:

Jamais vu (from French, meaning "never seen") is a term in psychology which is used to describe any familiar situation which is not recognized by the observer.

Often described as the opposite of déjà vu, jamais vu involves a sense of eeriness and the observer's impression of seeing the situation for the first time, despite rationally knowing that he or she has been in the situation before.

On 19 September 1893 the Governor of New Zealand signed the Electoral Bill into law giving women the right to vote to elect members of Parliament. New Zealand became the first country to extend this right to women. This was followed by legislation in 1919 enabling women to stand for Parliament. And they are now governed by their third female prime minister

Fun Fact: 100 years ago today, the first recorded mushroom cloud was observed.

A ship loaded with explosives caught fire and blew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia, killed at least 1,950 people, and blinded with flying glass at least 5,000 who were watching the action unfold through windows.. The anchor of the ship landed 2 miles away. The mushroom cloud reached 12,000 feet. Windows were shattered as far as 70 miles away. At 3 kt, it was the biggest explosion in history until the Manhattan project.

The City of Boston delivered trainloads of relief supplies and workers. To this day, the City of Boston's Christmas tree is given as a gift from the people of Nova Scotia as eternal thanks for their immense assistance in the aftermath.

OK here's a funn-er fact about it

Chalk River was one of the very first nuclear reactors (the first one was decommissioned in the 1950s, the "new" one built in 1957), set up as part of the late stages of the Manhattan Project. They learned many new things about reactor design and processes, and noticed a bunch of mud accumulating at the bottom of the reactor, which was basically spalled MOX fuel.

They didn't know what it was, and termed it "Chalk River Unidentified Deposits". CRUD.

We still use the word "crud" to describe, well, crud.
