Answer: One of the world’s most beloved works art, “David,” the 17-foot-tall, 12,000-pound marble statue by Michelangelo Buonarroti, was unveiled to the public in Florence, Italy on this day in 1504. Carved from a single block of white Italian Carrara marble, the massive statue depicts a nude David, the Biblical hero who used a slingshot to slay the giant Goliath.

The statue is widely considered one of the finest examples of High Renaissance art.

CHEWING GUM

Answer: In 1888, the Thomas Adams Gum Company introduced the very first vending machines to the United States. The vending machines were installed on the elevated subway platforms in New York City and sold Tutti-Fruiti gum. The machine itself was very primitive compared to the vending machines of the twenty-first century. It included a coin slot, a shelf for the product to be distributed to the consumer, and two levers that when pushed down, activated the system inside. Soon, vending machines were available that offered almost everything, including cigarettes, hot meals, and stamps.

The Statue of Liberty was originally intended for which country?

Egypt

 

17 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

 EGYPT

Answer: That’s right, the world’s most recognized symbol of freedom and the American dream, was originally intended for Egypt, which ultimately rejected it for being too old fashioned. The decision came as a disappointment to Lady Liberty’s creator, Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, who’d envisioned the Suez Canal as the ideal venue for his mammoth harbor structure. Bartholdi was apparently inspired by the Sphinx and the pyramids and the idea of creating something massive that could be eternal. After his failure in Egypt, the artist shifted his attention to America, which was prospering after the end of the Civil War.
