It's the history you'll wish you'd learned in school.
Did you know that at one time Pepsi had the sixth-largest navy in the world? That composer Joseph Haydn's head was stolen shortly after his burial and wouldn't be returned for almost 150 years? That Italian grenades in WWII had two pins, which the Americans knew but the Germans didn't?
History is full of fun, fascinating, and utterly useless information that is just dying to be rediscovered by you. But since you have, like, a life, you can let us do the leg work and get the goods....all you have to do is subscribe!
