Manx

MANX

Answer: A Manx cat looks like your typical cat—that is, until it turns around and you find that it’s missing a tail. Manx cats are best known as being tailless and it is the distinguishing characteristic of the breed. The tailless Manx is the result of a genetic mutation that was then intensified by the cats’ remote location on the Isle of Man, off the coast of Britain. The island became known for the tailless cats, which is how they got their name. The Manx cat has been so beloved by the island’s residents that in 1971 the government put a picture of the Manx on one of its coins.

RICHARD  CADBURY

Answer: The tradition of gifting chocolate on Valentine's Day began with a dedicated marketing campaign by Richard Cadbury. Richard Cadbury, son of Cadbury founder John Cadbury, created the first heart-shaped box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day. A marketing genius, Cadbury began putting Cupids and rosebuds on heart-shaped boxes in 1861. Thus, began the common link between chocolate and Valentine’s Day. A new tradition had begun. Each year, over 36 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolates are sold around the world.

Theodore Roosevelt

THEODORE  ROOSEVELT

Answer: Theodore Roosevelt's mother and wife died only hours apart on Valentine's Day in 1884. Each loss was an unexpected shock. His 48-year-old mother, Martha "Mittie" Roosevelt, had been taken ill and succumbed to typhoid fever. On the same day, his wife of four years, Alice Lee, died of Bright’s disease, a severe kidney ailment. Only two days before her death, Alice Lee had given birth to the couple’s daughter, Alice. In his diary, Roosevelt marked Valentine's Day 1884 with a black “X” and wrote, "The light has gone out of my life."

SCARLETT  O'HARA

Answer: This is the iconic final line of the book Gone with the Wind. It's also the final line of the film adaptation spoken by Scarlett O'Hara, played by Vivien Leigh. The line is ranked #31 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema. The iconic novel was originally titled Tomorrow is Another Day, from its last line. Margaret Mitchell eventually decided to change the name to Gone with the Wind from a line in a poem by Ernest Dowson. The novel earned Mitchell a Pulitzer Prize, and it was the source of the classic film of the same name released in 1939.

5 Things You Probably Didn't Know About King Tut_2

On February 16, 1923, archaeologist Howard Carter entered the sealed burial chamber of the ancient Egyptian ruler King Tutankhamen. Here are five things you probably didn't know about that tomb and King Tutankhamun.

Tutankhamun Was Buried in The World’s Most Expensive Coffin

Two of Tutankhamun’s three coffins were made of wood, covered with gold sheet.  But, to Howard Carter’s great surprise, the innermost coffin was made from thick sheets of beaten gold. This coffin measures 1.88m in length, and weighs 110.4kg. If it were to be scrapped today it would be worth approximately $1.7 million.  But as Tutankhamun’s final resting place it is, of course, priceless.

He Became a Pharaoh at The Age of Nine

Tutankhamun is one of the youngest known pharaohs of all time and descended to power at the age of 9 after his father’s death. He was married to his half-sister, Ankhesenamun, which was a common practice among Egyptian royals. Although they had two children together, neither child lived, and they were both interred in the same tomb with their father.

His Original Name Was Not Tutankhamun

Tutankhamun was originally named Tutankhaten. This name, which literally means “living image of the Aten”, reflected the fact that Tutankhaten’s parents worshipped a sun god known as “the Aten”. After a few years on the throne the young king changed his religion, abandoned the Aten, and started to worship the god Amun [who was revered as king of the gods]. This caused him to change his name to Tutankhamun, or “living image of Amun”.

King Tut’s Death Was Probably Accidental

For years, it was speculated that King Tut’s death at age 19 came courtesy of a blow to the head, inflicted, perhaps, by a murderous rival. More recently, however, experts have determined that the damage to his mummy’s skull occurred after death, either during the embalming process or at the hands of Carter’s crew. So how did the boy king die? In 2005 a study revealed that he broke his leg and developed an infection in the wound shortly before death. According to one theory, the pharaoh sustained the injury by falling from his chariot during a hunt. Meanwhile, DNA testing in 2010 suggested that Tutankhamen had malaria. Alternate theories about King Tut’s demise still abound, however, including the hypothesis that he succumbed to the lethal bite of an enraged hippopotamus.

His Heart Was Missing

The ancient Egyptians believed that it was possible to live again after death, but thought that this could only be achieved if the body was preserved in a lifelike condition. This led them to develop the science of artificial mummification. According to ancient Egyptians, the organ for reasoning was the heart and not the brain, and therefore, it was still essential for afterlife. Typically, the heart would be preserved, but in the case of Tut, the heart was missing in his mummy. It has been theorized that possibly Tut died when he was far away from home so that by the time they got his body for embalming the heart had already deteriorated so much that it could not be preserved and they had to get rid of it.
