Hitler’s toothbrush style moustache was not always like this. During WWI he had full moustache. Soldiers in trenches were experiencing mustard-gas and other lethal gas attacks during the WWI and respiratory masks were provided to the combatants to keep out gas. But during gas attacks, Hitler could not create complete airlocks pulling his respiratory mask over his face due his long moustache and he almost died due to presence of gas in his mask.

As a result, Hitler’s supervisors ordered Hitler to remove his fancy moustache to facilitate the wearing of the gas masks. But instead, he trimmed it to the distinctive toothbrush shaped style.

In January 1992 George Bush Sr. vomited on the Japanese prime minister. While attending the state dinner for over 100 diplomats held at the home of Japanese Prime Minister Kiichi, Bush, who was suffering flu like symptoms, fainted, but the fainting was the lesser of the two embarrassing events. Before fainting, Bush responded to the arrival of Japanese beef steak with a projectile vomit into the lap of the Japanese prime minister.

Between August and October, crabs sell like hot cakes in China, particularly live hairy crabs. Many of these are sold via vending machines which are run at a temperature of between 5 - 10 degrees Celsius to keep the live crabs in a dormant state. The vending machine crabs come in an edible transparent container - designed to make them feel like they're in a cave - together with some crab vinegar and two bags of ginger tea. You simply drop the container in boiling water to cook.
