Soap was considered a frivolous luxury of the British aristocracy from the early 1700s until 1862, and there was a tax on those who used it in England. Today it is apparently a frivolous luxury only for the French.
There's some useless knowledge for ya, all thanks to Google.
this is interesting: In Mulan, Li Shang is the first ever boy Disney character to have nipples. And the odd thing is, the guy who plays him is gay (which also creeps me out when he marries Mulan in #2!!!)
Did te know it was Adolf Hitler's idea to make the first family car, the Volkswagen Beetle, however at the early development of the car it was built da Porche. People bought the car da buying stamps over time, if te filled out your payment sheet "stamp book" te got the car, but if te missed one payment, your whole card was reset with no refund. It was all a scam to raise money for the Natzi's and nobody actually received a Beetle.
