This is why I love Facebook. Not only does it allow us to be nosy and spy on our friends, but it makes us smart.

History was never my strong suit in school. I'm not the best at remembering important historical dates, so when I saw this on a friend's Facebook page the other day, it was indeed mind blowing for me.

I don't know what was more shocking to me; that there is someone still alive who is 116 years old, or that the Chicago Cubs horrible cold streak is actually mentioned in the post.

Enjoy! I hope you impress your friends with this knowledge today.
