Unfortunately, your upper eyelid is not like your finger and does not actually have a unique individualistic mark that we see in a fingerprint. Apparently, your eyelid is pretty much a non-unique flap of skin that covers your eye.
Maybe there are other parts that have similar kinds of patterns, but the eyelid is just not one of them.
The President of Senegal Developed a Large Hadron Collider
The world's largest and highest-energy particle collider (and the largest machine in the world, in case you didn't know) is called the Large Hadron Collider. The device was built between 1998 and 2008 by the European Organization for Nuclear Research in collaboration with thousands of scientists.
But the President of Senegal was not one of them. The machine is housed in a 17-mile tunnel near the border of Geneva.
Cultures Using Sparrow Skulls as Money
Civilizations take time to evolve. The notion of trade at one point in our history was a whole new concept for humans. Then came the introduction of money. Of course, it took time for people to start using paper and coins, so they started out with other valuable and rare goods, like sparrow skulls. Well, the last part is just not true. There was never a group of people who actually did this.
It might be easy to believe. A precious little sparrow skull does look rather unique and one might like to think it could have been sued as currency. Unfortunately, this was not the case.
Buzz Aldrin Left a Pen on the Moon
"One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." That's pretty much all that went down there. Yup, nobody was penning letters or taking down notes on the moon. The famed astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins didn't do much on that big ol' moon other than walk around and put a flag in there.
The legend goes that moon-walker Eugene Cernan found Buzz Aldrin's pen on the moon, and...it still worked. This is just false.
The Eiffel Tower Has the National Motto Written in Braille
Contrary to popular belief, the Eiffel Tower does not actually have the national motto written in braille along its "legs." While the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" is an idea that is entrenched in French culture, apparently they weren't committed to the idea to the point of plastering it on their iconic landmark.
The motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" was coined and became the legacy of the Age of Enlightenment
