Many historians agree that the first spy, as we know them today, was a man called Sir Francis Walsingham, (born 1532), who worked for Elizabeth I during the war against Spain. In order to gain top-secret battles plans of the Spanish Armada, Sir Francis boarded a boat disguised as a paella.
Walsingham was successful in his mission and retired to the countryside where he wrote his famous novel, ‘Jaws’.
Before some bright spark invented clocks we used to tell the time in various ways, one way was to use candles. This technique was discovered in 1432 by Gustav Schhhnitzle of Austria when he realised it took him 3 minutes to eat a single 4 inch by .05 inch candle.
Great White sharks are actually terrified of water, hence their terrible mood swings.
Sharks are one of the oldest species of animal on Earth and as far as experts such as myself can tell, they have always lived in the sea. The question is why, as a species, did they decide to do this when they so clearly hate the water. Luckily, they are excellent swimmers and all of the food they need is also in the worlds oceans – which to me says that they’re meant to be in there.
