Johnny Weissmuller (1904)

Weissmuller was a five-time Olympic gold medalist with 67 world records in swimming when, in 1932, he turned in his swimsuit for a loincloth and became Tarzan, the Ape Man. He starred in 12 Tarzan films and created the memorable "Tarzan yell" before being replaced by a younger actor in 1948. He then went on to star in a series of Jungle Jim movies adapted from comic books. Afterward, he ran his own swimming pool company.

Beginning with the 1911 Wuchang Uprising and ending with the abdication of China's last emperor in 1912, the Xinhai Revolution ended China's Qing dynasty and established one of the first Asian republics. The revolution was motivated by frustrations with foreign intervention and a weak and corrupt government, and its leader, Sun Yat-sen, is considered a Chinese hero. The "Anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution" is celebrated in mainland China

Men Have Germier Offices than Women

Men have been shown to wash their hands and brush their teeth less often than women, and this trend may be to blame, at least in part, for the fact that men's offices contain more bacteria than women's offices. Researchers collected samples from offices in three major US cities and found more than 500 species of bacteria. Overall, the bacteria count in men's offices was 10 to 20 percent higher than in women's. The most contaminated surfaces in the offices were phones and chairs.

US President Grover Cleveland Gets Married in the White House (1886)

Though President Cleveland entered the White House a notorious bachelor—having allegedly fathered a child out of wedlock—he did not remain single for long. Having become the executor of his deceased law partner's estate a decade earlier, Cleveland had supervised the upbringing of his partner's daughter, Frances. She visited him in the White House in 1885, and the two were married in the Blue Room a year later, making him the only president to be married there.
