Hair and nails grow faster during pregnancy due to changes in hormones as well as increased blood circulation and metabolism supplying nutrients, A pregnant person's hair also "might feel thicker and look more shiny and healthy than usual." Though she warns that it can occasionally mean that the expecting "may suddenly sprout strands in places [they'd] rather not."
Irish pubs used to be closed on St Patick's Day (Ireland is heavily Catholic, and St. Patrick's Day falls during Lent, which means that although celebratory feasts and drinks were allowed, an all-night party seemed a little too sinful. Fearing excessive drinking, Ireland introduced a law that forced all pubs to close on March 17)

Johnny Appleseed's fruits weren't for eating. John Chapman who planted thousands of apple trees on U.S. soil. But the apples on those trees were much more bitter than the ones you’d find in the supermarket today. “Johnny Appleseed” didn’t expect his fruits to be eaten whole, but rather made into hard apple cider.
Ketchup sold as medicine in the 1830s (In 1834, Dr. John Cooke Bennet added tomatoes to ketchup. Previously, ketchup had been a concoction of fish or mushrooms. The addition of tomatoes meant it added a a plethora of vitamins and antioxidants to the sauce)
The longest English word is 189,819 letters long. We won’t spell it out here, but the full name for the protein nicknamed titin would take three and a half hours to say out loud.

McDonald's developed a bubblegum-flavored broccoli (If McDonald's thought the sweet side dish was going to revolutionize children's fast food, their bubble was burst when the broccoli was tested on actual children)

Nicolas Cage Once Owned a $150,000 Octopus That Helped His Acting. Nicolas Cage has been known to make some pretty outrageous purchases throughout his career. Many of those purchases led to his ultimate bankruptcy, and his rise back to stardom after taking every movie role available to bounce back.
Really?? Sounds like a nut-case to me! Or more likely, he's high on something when making these crazy purchases.

Pineapple acts as a natural meat tenderizer.
The fruit is packed with the enzyme bromelain, which breaks down protein chains, making it an ideal marinade for meats when you don't have a lot of time. But for the same reason, pineapple does not work for jams or jellies, since the enzyme breaks down gelatin as well. The bromelain is so strong that pineapple processors have to wear protective gloves, otherwise over time the enzyme eats away at the skin on their face and hands, leaving dry skin and small sores.
