I'm curious. HOW do they know this? Who wears the size 650 shoe for them to compare this to?
{This fun fact was sent in to me by GI Jane - thanks yo!}

That is one times floating porcupine.
Look at him trapped in that glass.

Or if you are me, it can be used to create "fake blood" and trick innocent people.

You can tell from the statue of a mounted horseman how the rider died. If all four of the horse's feet are on the ground, he died of natural causes. One foot raised means he died from wounds suffered in battle. Two legs raised means he died in action.

EDIT: Have just had a reader comment below that the fact above is not entirely correct - whilst a lot of equestrian statues do fall into this basic convention - it is not hard and fast.This is a really interesting read at - which shows a whole lot of statues which fall outside this rule. The article also mentions some of the "coincidences" between the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations. Very interesting - take a read!
