AARON BURR

Answer: Aaron Burr was the third Vice President of the United States under President Thomas Jefferson. On this day in 1804, Alexander Hamilton was shot and mortally wounded by Vice President Aaron Burr in one of the most famous duels in American history. Burr was never tried for the illegal duel and all charges against him were eventually dropped. The death of Hamilton, however, ended Burr's political career. President Jefferson dropped him from the ticket for the 1804 presidential election, and he never held office again.

Which creature has 3 hearts?

OCTOPUS

Answer: The octopus has three hearts in total with one of the hearts functioning as the systematic heart that pumps oxygenated blood to the other body parts. Two of the three hearts are referred to as brachial hearts and pump blood to the gills. Unlike most vertebrates with iron-rich hemoglobin packed in their blood, octopuses have copper-rich hemocyanin that dissolves directly into their blood making their blood to appear blue. Hemoglobin is more efficient than hemocyanin as an oxygen transporter. Thus, the three hearts compensate by pumping blood around the body at a faster rate to supply the needed oxygen for the octopus’ active lifestyle.

HONUS WAGNER

Answer: The T206 Honus Wagner baseball card sold for a staggering $3.12 million in 2016, and is considered to be the Holy Grail of baseball cards. It was originally produced by the American Tobacco Company and was included in packs of the company's cigarettes. The Pittsburgh Pirates star barred the company from continuing production of the card — either because he didn't want children to buy cigarettes to acquire his card or because he wanted to get paid more for his likeness. The ATC ended production of the Wagner card and a total of only 50 to 200 cards were ever distributed to the public.

GEICO

Answer: In 1936, Leo and Lillian Goodwin started an insurance company to serve federal government employees. That company was Government Employees Insurance Company, or GEICO. GEICO's original business model was predicated on the assumption that federal employees would constitute a less risky and more financially stable pool of customers compared to the general public. Whether you know it through the gecko or the caveman, GEICO has become one of the most well-branded insurance firms in the United States.
