Fun Fact

In Switzerland it is illegal to own just one guinea pig.

This is because guinea pigs are social animals, and they are considered victims of abuse if they are alone.

Why isn’t this a law everywhere?!

History Fact

Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times.

Julius Caesar is probably the most iconic name associated with the Romans. Likewise, his assassination and death are also highly notorious.

Due to his coup d’état of the Roman Republic and his proclamation of himself as Dictator for Life, along with his radical political views, a group of his fellow Roman senators led by his best friend Brutus assassinated him on March 15th, 44 BC.

During the assassination, Caesar was stabbed at least 23 times, before finally succumbing to his wounds.

He passed away with fabled words to his former best friend Brutus, allegedly being “you too, sweet child?”

Weird Laws

Food Thing

American

Annual U.S. production: 5.2 billion pounds

Ok, so this is a little confusing: Processed cheeses like Kraft and Velveeta are often called American cheeses. But when the USDA uses this classification, it’s talking about non-processed cheeses made in the U.S., most prominently cheddar, Colby and Jack.

Not surprisingly, cheddar dominates in this category, with consumption hitting about 11.07 pounds per capita, with the other American cheeses reaching about 3.99 pounds combined. Ranging from mild to extra sharp, cheddar often comes out on top in surveys asking Americans to pick their favorite cheese (because it’s perfection, obviously).

Colby is pretty similar to cheddar, including in color, but is softer and milder. And Monterey jack cheese (often shortened to just "jack") is a white variety that originated with Mexican Franciscan friars in Monterey, California that’s known for its mellow flavor — though those looking for a kick can turn to its spicy cousin of pepper Jack.

All are fantastically popular for a reason.
