The First Electric Toothbrush

The first electric toothbrush, the Dentacleanomatic was invented in 1893. The inventor, Alexander Dentin was killed in it's first use when he stuck the electric implement under water and into his mouth. The first working, waterproof electric toothbrush wasn't developed until 1910 after many unfortunate failed tests.

Cargo Shorts

The hedgehog or Porcus shrubbus has a diet largely consisting of mushrooms and turtle meat. They are primarily indigenous to New Zealand. The largest hedgehog on record, found in 1992 was 27 kg. Its most striking characteristic is its blue color. Most hedgehogs do not wear sneakers.
