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.

The class 100 multiple units of Vienna's Badner Bahn (a tram-train service between Austrian capital city Vienna and Baden) were named after workers, for example unit no. 125 is Susanne and 115 is Andreas. Their names can be found on the outside of the trains.

And another information: Today is International Dog Day.

Interesting Tram trivia Chieris. Sheffield in the UK had trams from 1873 to 1960, got rid of them all then brought them back in 1994 as the Supertram, they seem to work well, I have ridden on them.

Hooray for International Dog Day, great isn't it, me and Mrs Deer just found out too ! :-)

When The Flintstones' first Hungarian dub was made in 1966, József Romhányi's translated script was full of rhymes and wordplays unlike the original. There was a rumor that the dub was so good that the English dub was remade so it also rhymes but there's no evidence that it actually happened

Today I learned that my university campus was built on a cemetery. There used to a Roman cemetery and there was another cemetery that was established in 1780 and it was in use until 1924. I was walking in the forest near to the campus when I ran into the cemetery's gate

If you were to Google which is the most popular car in each state, you would get a different answer every time as it varies from site to site. You would need to get information from the state itself.

Neat!
Do you encounter many ghosts on campus?

Fun fact: Although they typically only live for 15 years in the wild, an echidna living in captivity once made it to the ripe old age of 50!

I didn't have any encounters on the campus. As far as I know, the cemetery was cleared before the university campus was built there in the 1970s.
But occasionally when I'm in my bed at night, I see small lights appearing and disappearing in the corner of my eye. To be fair I think it does have a rational explanation that I'm not aware of, but I like to think that these lights indicate that my late dog (who had to be euthanized last year due to cancer) is still here
