The most serious case of hyperinflation happened in Hungary in 1946, it took only 15 hours for prices to double. When forint was introduced on 1st August, the amount of existing pengő notes valued less than 0.1 fillér (or 0.001 forint).
The highest denomination is also related to pengő, it was one billion bilpengő (short for "billió pengő" which means trillion, yes, I know it's a bit confusing), though these banknotes were never in use, they were only printed. The highest denomination that was actually used was a hundred million bilpengő, if it was written down as a number, it would consist the number 1, followed by 20 zeros.

There's a cave in Mexico's Naica mine called the Cave of the Crystals, or Cueva de los cristales, in which a human can only survive unprotected for about 10 minutes because their lungs rapidly fill with water.

The cave is naturally heated by the Earth to 58C/136F and has a humidity of 99%. In this environment the surface of your lungs is the coolest place around which makes the moisture in the air condense and pool inside them. This means you literally drown without even being under water.

The cave features giant selenite crystals (a form of gypsum) weighing several tonnes. See the below picture for scale.

Since 2015, work in the mine adjoining the cave has ceased and the cave has been allowed to return to its natural flooded state, meaning the crystals will continue to slowly grow until the cave is one day drained again.

While they aren't picky eaters, cockroaches in particular like starches, sweets, greasy foods, and meats.

Paul Winchell, the voice actor for Tigger in Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" cartoon series, also invented the artificial heart, worked as a ventriloquist and created a brand of safety razors.

The inventor of the fire hydrant isn’t actually known, because the original patent for it was destroyed.

In a fire.

Within the time system, a.m. is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase ante merīdiem meaning “before midday” and p.m. is an abbreviation of post merīdiem which means "after midday".

Most historians consider April 11th, 1954 the most boring and uneventful day of the entire 20th century, due to a lack of any notable events happening on that day.

A bit morbid but the next one won't be. At the time of his death, Elvis Presley was estimated at 350 pounds and he was virtually non-functional at the end, being mostly bed-ridden and requiring permanent nursing care.
