Hundreds of years ago, hurricanes were named after saints, according to NOAA. The hurricane that struck Puerto Rico in 1825 was named Santa Ana, for example.

By the end of the 19th century, an Australian forecaster named Clement Wragge pioneered the practice of naming storms after the Greek alphabet. He then began applying women's names to tropical storms before the end of the 19th century.

NOAA said a group of American soldiers in 1944 named a series of tropical storms in Saipan after their wives.

year later, according to NOAA, the armed services adopted the practice of naming typhoons in the western Pacific after women.

By 1953, the military scrapped its storm-naming method, which worked off a phonetic alphabet, and started attributing female names to storms, according to NOAA.

Male names have only been included on the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) storm lists since 1979.

meteorologists alternate male and female names for storms and rotate them out by using six lists that run through the year 2022.

The lists are reused unless one [storm name] is retired and is substituted with a new name that is selected by the World Meteorological Organization.

An American study in 1976 concluded that Sherpas had undergone genetic adaptations after living in one of the world's highest regions for thousand of years. This gave them an advantage when in high altitudes.

Adaptations include unique hemoglobin-binding enzymes, doubled nitric oxide production, hearts that can utilize glucose and lungs with an increased efficiency in low oxygen conditions.

The word ‘gasoline' doesn't come from ‘gas'. It comes from Cazeline – after John Cassell, who was the first to sell it commercially.

The first recorded reference to suicide comes from ancient Egypt (about 4,000 years ago) in The Dispute between a Man and His Ba, in which a man describes the injustice and greed of his times to his ba, or soul, which has threatened to leave him if he kills himself, thus depriving him of an afterlife.

An owl has three eyelids: one for blinking, one for sleeping and one for keeping the eye clean and healthy. The third eyelid is also called the nictitating membrane, and many other birds also have it, including other raptors.

Richard Nixon loved clowns.
So much so that he signed the bill for a National Clown Week in 1971. It is from August 1-7 and it happens EVERY YEAR.

White House Honey Ale is the first beer known to have been brewed in the White House.
The process began in January 2011 at the request of President Barack Obama who purchased the homebrewing kit using his personal funds.
