Hooks[change source]

NOTE: When possible, it is good to have a balance of subjects covered by the hooks. Thanks.

From a collection of Wikipedia's articles:


  • ... that supercentenarian Kane Tanaka (pictured) lived through all five imperial reigns that make up modern day Japan?
  • ... Little Trees was invented by Julius Sämann in 1952 after a milk driver complained to him about the smell of spilled milk?
  • ... that Melania Trump is the first woman to be First Lady of the United States as an immigrant born outside of the United States?
  • ... that a study done in the 1940s found that in the United States about a third of the people were lynched because of false accusations?
  • ... that Johann Philipp Kirnberger created a way to make music using dice throws?
