first stroller was pulled by a goat

 The Ides of March is the 74th day in the Roman calendar, corresponding to 15 March. It was marked by several religious observances and was notable for the Romans as a deadline for settling debts. Also If you want to avoid bad luck, beware the ides of March. The date was certainly unlucky for Julius Caesar, who was assassinated in front of the Roman senate on March 15. William Shakespeare dramatized the event in his play about Caesar with the famous quote, 'beware the ides of March.”

Japanese village called Nagoro has 35 inhabitants, but over 350 scarecrows (In the early 2000s, Tsukimi Ayano, whose family left the area when she was a child, moved back to Nagoro to look after her father, and made a doll in his likeness that she placed in a field. She has since made more than 400, including replacements, and about 350 are in the village. Many are also likenesses of residents or former residents, while others are invented people. Soon, others followed in Ayano's footsteps. The village school, which closed in 2012, includes a large number of dolls in one classroom, two children are self-portraits by the last two students to study there, who dressed them in their own clothes. Other dolls include three men sitting at the base of a telephone pole on the outskirts of the village, a man fishing in the river, a group in a bus shelter, and utility workers performing roadwork. The village has become a tourist attraction and is now known as Nagoro Doll Village)

Mummy's Eyes Pharaoh Ramses IV of Ancient Egypt had his eyes replaced with small onions when he was mummified. The rings and layers of onions were worshipped because people thought they represented eternal life. This aligns with the reason for mummification: to allow the pharaoh’s body to live forever. Let’s hope these interesting facts don’t all apply to practices used today.

Neptune was the first planet to be found through mathematical predictions rather than telescopic location
