Did You Know That... - Interesting Facts

I've decided to start a weekly "Did You Know That..." facts session. I'll post five quick and interesting facts weekly. Welcome to the first one. Hope you'll like it :)

1

Did you know that the smallest park in the world is a circle of 2 ft (0.61 m) across, with a total area of 452 sq in (0.292 m2) which is located in Portland, Oregon? The park is called Mill Ends Park and, according to a legend, a leprechaun named Patrick O'Toole lives there.

2

Did you know that Ritter Sport chocolate is made square to be able to fit into the pocket of a sports jacket?

3

Did you know that there is a silent disco - a disco where people dance to the music in headphones? Instead of using acoustic system, the music is broadcast through the FM-transmitter for wireless receivers built into the headphones. Those who are not in the headphones can't hear the music. This creates an effect of a room full of people dancing in silence.

4

Did you know that Apple sold 3,000,000 of the new iPads in just 3 days?

5

Did you know that female body contains 6 times more gold than male's?

That's it for today. Stay tuned for the next "Did You Know That..." facts hub :)
