Computers, 1964 “A computer fed information by engineers at Los Angeles took only 1.2 second this week to come up with what was described as Miss Formula, the girl with everything. Her dimensions: height, 5 feet, 6 inches; weight, 115-118 pounds and measurements, 36-24-36.”
Ancient Chinese astronomical observations contained in the wooden chronicle known as the "Bamboo Annals" contain many details of comets, fireballs, and especially planetary conjunctions, the accuracy of which can now be verified using computer technology
Fletcher Sutherland and his daughters, c. 1880s. In 1882 the Barnum and Bailey Circus signed a new act, called the Seven Sutherland Sisters. The girls (Sarah, Victoria, Isabella, Grace, Naomi, Mary, and Dora) ranged in age from 18 to 36. The climax of the act came when the sisters would turn in unison, letting their voluminous tresses (a collective total of 36½ feet of hair) spill down their backs.. The group made a fortune selling hair growth tonic and related products.
