‘There are 5 temples in Kyoto, Japan that have blood stained ceilings. The ceilings are made from the floorboards of a castle where warriors killed themselves after a long hold-off against an army. To this day you can still see the outlines and the footprints.’

Creeeeppppy! An interesting fact, though. Try pulling this bad boy out on your next trivia night!

Have you heard the saying ‘It’s raining cats and dogs’? That saying supposedly came into being in England during the 17th century when there were many homeless cats and dogs that would drown during heavy storms and float down the streets, making it appear as if it had, in fact, been raining cats and dogs.

Morbid, but interesting. I often wonder about the origins of sayings that seem so bizarre.

Have you heard about this one?
