History Fact

People were buried alive so often, that bells were attached to their coffins.

Due to medicine not being so great, comatose people were sometimes mistakenly buried alive.

In order to counteract these potential blunders, people were buried with little bells above ground. These bells were attached to a string, which went into the coffin.

If the person was buried alive, and later woke up they would tug on the string that would ring the bell above ground.

Someone would hear it and then dig the person out of their premature resting place.

Century Egg / 100 Year Old Egg / 1000 Year Old Egg – China

Yeah, OK, it’s neither a century nor a millennium old, but this egg is pretty rotten. After being preserved in a mixture of clay, ash and quicklime for a few months, the yolk turns a dark green or even black and slimy while the white has turns to a dark brown translucent jelly. Apparently it smells of strongly of sulphur and ammonia, but tastes like a hardboiled egg… until you breathe out that is.
