Betty White Is Older Than Sliced Bread (And Other Time Altering Facts)
We're taught at a very young age to "respect our elders" and "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all". Well, sometimes the truth not only hurts, but it's funny. For example: Betty White is actually older than sliced bread! The seasoned actress was born in 1922, a full 6 years before the first loaf of sliced bread ever hit the shelves.
Other time-slashing revelations include the fact that France was still using the guillotine as a form of execution when Star Wars was first released in the theaters and the high end jewelry store Tiffany & Co. was founded before Italy was even a country!!!
Kinda changes your concept of time a little, doesn't it? Now go ask your great grandparents what year they were born.
