Fun Fact

Water makes different pouring sounds depending on its temperature.

If you listen very closely, hot water and cold water sound slightly different when being poured. The heat changes the thickness, or viscosity, of the water, which changes the pitch of the sound it makes when it's poured. What we feel as heat comes from the molecules of the water moving faster. Cold water is thicker and therefore makes a slightly higher-pitched sound.

History Fact

Financial Backer

Stephen Girard, one of the wealthiest men in American history, personally saved the United States government from financial collapse during the War of 1812. He placed almost all of his personal assets at the disposal of the government, and underwrote 95% of the war loan issue, which allowed the US to continue the war.
