Random Facts(Sunday Snippet)

This little Sunday Snippet is dedicated to my kid brother not really because it is directly about him, but just because his brain is filled with random information.  No one I know absorbs randomness like he does. Not only does he absorb, it but he stores it away to recall it for later use. So today’s random facts about nothing inpredicular It’s just me wishing to be a little more like my kid brother.  Here are five random little facts that have nothing to do with each other!
1.       The First Person ever to ride over Niagara Falls in a barrel and survive was Annie Edson Taylor in 1901. A teacher she was 63 years old.

2.       The word astronaut literally means ‘Star Sailor’. It comes from Greek words ‘astra’ meaning star, and ‘nauta’ meaning sailor.

3.       The largest toyshop is Toy ‘R’ Us in New York Times Square. It contains a full sized Ferris Wheel

4.       The first know story of Cinderella comes from ninth century China

5.       The Bible is the best selling book ever. Estimated that six billion copies have been sold and it has been translated into 2,000
