Interesting fact

The Canary Islands were named after dogs, not birds.

 

It might seem safe to assume that the Canary Islands were named after canary birds, but the location was actually named after dogs. Although it's off the coast of northwestern Africa, the archipelago is actually part of Spain. In Spanish, the area's name is Islas Canarias which comes from the Latin phrase Canariae Insulae or "island of dogs."

Ancient egyptians used crocodile dung as a contraceptive because of it's spermicidal properties. 

 

Quite possibly the origin of the phrase, "fock the shiit out of someone."
