Kaelin's restaurant in Louisville, Ky was where the first sandwich to actually be called a "cheeseburger" was made. Charles Kaelin claims to have invented the cheese-topped burger in 1934 because he wanted, reports Louisville writer Robin Garr, to "add a new tang to the hamburger." This is the earliest example of a menu claiming to be "the birthplace of the cheeseburger."

Mammoth Cave in Kentucky is the longest cave system in the world. There are more than 400 miles of interlinking caves running under Kentucky, and that is just what has been “officially” mapped. The total depth is still unknown.

Octopuses lay 56,000 eggs at a time
The mother spends six months so devoted to protecting the eggs that she doesn’t eat. The babies are the size of a grain of rice when they’re born.
Peanuts aren’t technically nuts. They’re legumes. According to Merriam-Webster, a nut is only a nut if it’s “a hard-shelled dry fruit or seed with a separable rind or shell and interior kernel.” That means walnuts, almonds, cashews, and pistachios aren’t nuts either. They’re seeds.
Queen Elizabeth saved up post-war clothing ration coupons in order to pay for her wedding dress in 1947 (When Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip got married 70 years ago, even royalty couldn’t escape the rationing still imposed on British citizens following World War II. To pay for her dress, Elizabeth conserved her rationing coupons and received a gift of 200 coupons from the British government to purchase the material needed. Despite the conservative means by which she paid for it, Queen Elizabeth’s wedding dress was a rather spectacular sight. It was made of ivory silk, had a 13-foot-long train with a pattern inspired by a Botticelli painting and was bedecked in crystals and 10,000 seed pearls imported from America. The coupons indeed went toward all these materials)
Raccoons take their name after their hands. Compared to other animals, raccoon hands are almost human-like. These well-developed front paws are what gave raccoons their common name in English. The name “raccoon” originates from the word “aroughcun”, a Powhatan term that means “one who scratches with its hands”.
your sweat itself isn't stinky; it's the bacteria on your skin that breaks the sweat down that causes the odor. Additionally, you'll find that the sweat on your arms and legs doesn't smell as much as your armpits. That's because sweat glands in your armpits secrete more protein into a dark, damp environment—the perfect place and food for bacteria.
Tom Hanks has an asteroid named after him (Asteroid 12818 Tomhanks was discovered on April 13, 1996 by University of Arizona astronomer Joseph L. Montani, part of a group of astronomers called Spacewatch who observe from University of Arizona telescopes in Kitt Peak, Ariz. The asteroid wasn't officially named until later, once its orbit had been well determined by multiple observations. Spacewatch member Jim Scotti, a senior research specialist at the University of Arizona, bestowed the name "Tomhanks" in honor of Tom Hanks, the actor. "I started thinking about people that deserved asteroid names," Scotti told SPACE.com. "Tom Hanks is a fellow space geek, he grew up with Apollo and man walking on the moon." Scotti was impressed with Hanks' work acting in the 1995 film "Apollo 13," which dramatized the real-life 1970 NASA moon mission, as well as the follow-up 1998 HBO series "From the Earth to the Moon," which Hanks hosted and co-produced. "I was just tickled pink with those kinds of programs and was inspired to name an asteroid after Tom Hanks," Scotti said. "I also named one after Ron Howard," the director of "Apollo 13" and a co-producer of "From the Earth to the Moon.")
