Adam’s Fun Facts: Post-It Notes, AXE Body Spray, Wild Jaguars & More!

What do they call AXE body spray in other countries? How did we get the wonderful invention of Post-It notes?  How many wild jaguars live in the United States?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. Brushing your teeth didn’t take off in the United States until after World War Two, when soldiers came home and brought the habit with them. (Castle Dental)

2. The Post-it note was invented by accident, by a scientist at 3M who was actually trying to create a really STRONG adhesive. Even the yellow color was by accident!  The lab next door only had yellow scrap paper for them to use. (Wikipedia)

3. Axe body spray is called Lynx in England, Ireland, Australia, China, and New Zealand because of trademark issues. (Wikipedia)

4. There’s only one wild jaguar in the entire United States. He lives in the Santa Rita Mountains near Tucson, Arizona. (LiveScience)

5. Larry King once got into a car accident with JFK. When JFK was a senator, King crashed into his car . . . JFK told him it was fine and he wouldn’t report it as long as King voted for him when he ran for president. (The Blaze)
