One of the earliest recorded recipes for beer dates back about ~10,000 years ago to Mesopotamia, aka modern day Iraq and surrounding regions (the borders were different then to what they are now).

The blob of toothpaste that sits on your toothbrush has a name.
It's called a "nurdle," and there was a lawsuit over which toothpaste company had the right to depict it.

I'll be doing lots of psychology fact spamming

Lots of studies have shown that men tend to be attracted to faces with neotenous features such as widely separated, large eyes and small noses because they trigger a protective instinct.

Also, the characteristics that people consider to be physically attractive are consistent across cultures. Cunningham et al. found that the female features of large eyes, a small nose and high eyebrows were rated as attractive by white, Hispanic and Asian males. This suggests that people will be considering these universally attractive treats when applying the matching hypothesis in selecting romantic partners. The theories can be generalised to the entire human population and are not ethnocentric.

Walster and Walster proposed the matching hypothesis - where people tend to choose romantic partners who are a roughly similar level of attraction to themselves. When choosing a partner, a person first must assess their own value in the eyes if a potential romantic partner and then select the best candidates who are most likely going to be attracted to them.

However, psychologists have proposed that the reason doesn't always support the matching hypothesis because people come to a relationship offering many desirable characteristics of which physical attraction is only one. Often what a person lacks in physical attraction they make up for with a great personality, status, wealth. A typical example of complex matching is when an older, wealthy and successful man pairs up with a younger, attractive women. So, it is reductionist to suggest that physical attraction is the sole contribution to attraction.

Bulls are actually green and red colour blind, so they don't get 'angry' at matadors for waving a red piece of cloth, its the motion apparently.
