The United States of America is a pretty catchy name if you ask me; it’s up there with the Independent and Sovereign Republic of Kiribati for sure. The Industrial Revolution changed the world.

Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human being to travel into space on 12th of April 1961, but it could have easily been a British guy in his stead, if his nation wasn’t broke. The British Empire first established settlements in Australia in the late 18th Century, but these early colonies were only initially used as penal facilities to hold some of Britain’s biggest criminal jerks.Did you know that an argument over a single pig could’ve changed American history? This might sound like the kind of Trump-Obama fetish video that literally no one on Earth wants to see, but the headline actually refers to the time America nearly lost both of its Presidents within the space of 14 hours.The Channel Tunnel is a 50 kilometre undersea rail tunnel which links the UK with France and has done ever since opening in 1994. The toothbrush moustache was a rather popular form of facial hair in the late 19th Century, and it actually began as an American trend before spreading to Germany and…yeah you know what happened next.
