Trivia 6/30

trivia 6/30
DID YOU KNOW...
WHAT THE DICKENS?

• Charles Dickens, born in 1812, was the first modern literary superstar. His
popular works reached a wider audience than those of any writer before him thanks to
novels like Oliver Twist, A Christmas Carol, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities,
and David Copperfield.
• Dickens combed his hair hundreds of times a day. He also constantly rearranged
furniture in his home—if it wasn’t in the “correct” position, he couldn’t concentrate.
• Dickens was a devotee of mesmerism, a system of healing through hypnotism. He
practiced it on his hypochondriac wife and his children, and claimed to have healed
several friends and associates.

Covering about 309,000 square miles, the largest tropical island in the world is New
Guinea.
Located in the western Pacific Ocean, it is home to more species than any other island in
the world.
Although it is mostly covered by tropical rain forest, it also includes swamps, alpine
mountains, grasslands, savannas, and even glaciers.

Number two is Borneo – Number Three is Madagascdar….
