THEY DID WHAT?!
Did you know that Romans used clay to clean their togas? Or that some women in the 1400's wore fancy shoes called chopines that sometimes rose over 2 feet from the ground? What about some of the things that we think we already know? Is there really a five second rule for the food we drop on the ground? Does water really cure the hiccups? Speaking of water, does it really spin backwards in toilets in Australia? To find out the answers to all these questions and many more take a look at They Did What?! Your Guide to Weird & Wacky Things People Do by Jeff Szpirglas. You won't be able to put this book down as you find out about all sorts of wacky people throughout history.
