Wimbledon tennis balls are kept at 68 degrees Fahrenheit
The temperature of tennis balls affects how the ball bounces. At warmer temperatures, the gas molecules inside the ball expand making the ball bounce higher. A tennis ball at lower temperatures causes the molecules to shrink and the ball bounces lower. To make sure the best tennis balls are used, Wimbledon goes through over 50,000 tennis balls.
X-ray technology was discovered by accident (On November 8, 1895, Röntgen was experimenting with cathode rays to test a phenomenon of light found in an earlier experiment. Röntgen had set up a florescent screen painted with barium platinocyanide and a Crookes tube, wrapped in black cardboard to cover its florescence - when, all of a sudden, he noticed a green glow about a meter away. The cathode rays should not have been able to reach the screen, but they did. Even when Röntgen placed carbon paper or a piece of wood between the Crookes tube and the screen, the screen still glowed. He had discovered a new form of electromagnetic radiation - but because he did not know what it was, he simply called it "X.")

I read that about X-rays one time when I was looking for something for another topic in this game.
Yellow mustard isn't naturally yellow. Mustard seeds are actually a brownish-gray color. The addition of turmeric gives it the bright yellow color. Yellow mustard wasn't a thing until 1904 when George French of the R.T. French Company experimented with a "creamy salad mustard" and added the golden-hued spice for a more attraction presentation.
"Zzzz" is an onomatopoeic representation of the act of snoring. It sounds like snoring, or at least since 1918. Snoring and sleep became almost interchangeable in comics' language, and this brought on a new agreed-upon standard. In 1918, the American Dialect Society formalized it, and soon after, popular idioms followed, like "catching some z's", for instance.

Armadillo shells are bulletproof. In fact, one Texas man was hospitalized when a bullet he shot at an armadillo ricocheted off the animal and hit him in the jaw.
Bridge was built for squirrels (The Nutty Narrows Bridge was built in 1963 by a local builder, the late Amos Peters, to give squirrels a way to cross the busy thoroughfare without getting flattened by passing cars. It is regarded as the first of its kind)
Camels have three sets of eyelids and two rows of eyelashes to keep sand out of their eyes.
