    He's not just flying around without any authority! In 1927, Saint Nick got a pilot's license from the assistant secretary of commerce for aeronautics, William P. MacCracken.

    According to the Library of Congress, Santa had his picture taken as he was given his license, airway maps, "and the assurance that the lights would be burning on the airways on Christmas Eve."

    Amish typically don’t grow mustaches with their beard due to them being pacifists, and mustaches being associated with soldiers/military during the 1800s and early 1900’s in Europe.

    I’m willing to bet most licenses probably weren’t concerned about what was served, but instead who was served and when.

    No Sunday sales, no women, all kind of racist restrictions on selling to African Americans or Native Americans.

    They probably didn’t care what you served.

    A chunk of neutron star material the size of a sugar cube would weigh about 100 million tons.

    If the entire Earth were made of neutron star material, it would be the diameter of the Arecibo Telescope.

    Bears know this and prefer to eat the skin, brain, and eggs—the fattiest parts of a salmon—when fish are in abundance. This is an ephemeral behavior, however. When salmon are not abundant or hard to catch then bears will not be as selective and will most often eat the whole fish.
