600) The keyboard on a computer is arranged the way it is (qwertyyuiop......ect) because of the typewriter. When they made the first typewriter, they tried to put the letters in ABC order, but you couldn't type very fast because the keys kept getting stuck together. They separated the most used keys across the keyboard, and it kept them from getting stuck. Everyone got used to the weird order, and they decided to keep it for the computer.

601) Napoleon didn't die of stomach cancer, he was poisoned. First it was slowly, with arsenic, to make it look like he died naturally, and then he was given the medicine calomel, which combined with the arsenic in his bloodstream and turned into cyanide. Check the book Mysteries of History if you don't believe me.
