    The modeling compound Play-Doh started out in the 1950s as a wallpaper cleaner for coal residue. Sales began to fall as coal was used less frequently in furnaces, but the owner's sister-in-law, a preschool teacher, suggested it be used as a children's toy.

    Japan is currently considered the skinniest industrialized nation in the world, and there’s a very good reason for that—it’s against the law to be fat. Japanese law dictates that a male over the age of 40 can’t have a waistline larger than 33.5 inches (85 cm). Women are given a little more leeway with 35.4 inches (90 cm).( According to http://listverse.com/ )
