No, I didn't know that................

Underneath the streets of Beijing, there are over a million people who live in nuclear bunkers (In the late ’60s and ‘70s, anticipating the devastation of a Cold War-nuclear fallout, Chairman Mao directed Chinese cities to construct apartments with bomb shelters capable of withstanding the blast of a nuclear bomb. In Beijing alone, roughly 10,000 bunkers were promptly constructed. But when China opened its door to the broader world in the early ’80s, Beijing’s defense department seized the opportunity to lease the shelters to private landlords, eager to profit from converting the erstwhile fallout hideaways into tiny residential units. Now when night falls, more than a million people—mostly migrant workers and students from rural areas—vanish from Beijing’s bustling streets into the underground universe)

You can even take dance classes...................

Valentine's Day started with the Romans. The day derives from Lupercalia, a raucous Roman festival on February 15th where men stripped naked and spanked young maidens in the hopes of increasing their fertility.

(also architectural!)

Xystus was the Greek architectural term for the covered portico of the gymnasium, in which the exercises took place during the winter or in rainy weather.

The yo-yo is a really ancient toy. There's a Greek vase painting from around 500 BC that shows a boy playing with a yo-yo —  that's over 2,500 years old! They made their yo-yos from wood, metal and terracotta (a type of pottery made from baked clay).

Which is a good thing because apparently Nostradamus predicted a zombie apocalypse for 2021...............

Round 5 ...

Avocados were named after reproductive organs. Indigenous people of Mexico and Central America used the Nahuatl word ahuacatl to mean both “testicles” and “avocado.” The fruits were originally marketed as “alligator pears” in the United States until the current name stuck.

Ben & Jerry learned how to make ice cream by taking a $5 correspondence course from Penn State (Ben Cohen has severe anosmia, a lack of a sense of smell or taste, and so relied on "mouth feel" and texture to provide variety in his diet. This led to the company's trademark chunks being mixed in with their ice cream. On May 5, 1978, with a $12,000[4] investment (equivalent to $48,000 in 2020), the two business partners opened an ice cream parlor in a renovated gas station in downtown Burlington, Vermont. In 1979, they marked their anniversary by holding the first "free cone day", now an annual event at every Ben & Jerry's store)

My two favorites........................

Cicadas wait  17 years to emerge. There are several theories, however. The chief theory is that they stay underground to avoid predators. Waiting for months or years means predators won't rely on them as a food source.

This is the year??
