Fun Fact

A swarm of 20,000 bees followed a car for two days because their queen was stuck inside.

When the car parked, the thousands of bees swarmed onto the car and had to be taken off by beekeepers.


The next day, the bees were back on the car because the queen was still inside and the swarm had to be taken off again.


History Fact

The Eastern Roman Empire’s weapon called Greek Fire was used in ship-mounted flamethrowers.

The secret of how to make Greek Fire was lost with the fall of the Roman Empire.


This weapon so unique and deadly due to the fact that throwing water onto it would only feed the fire. It was almost gelatinous in texture and would stick to things.


It was mostly used in naval warfare, as the large flamethrowers needed for its projectile use could be better accommodated by ships rather than infantry.


The Greek Fire would easily demolish a fleet of wood and canvas ships floating on water.
