Chainsaws Were Meant For Something Completely Different
...and the answer will shock you! Find out what chainsaws were initially meant for below, but first:
Did you know that the queen of England owns her own McDonalds?
Yes, the restaurant. She bought it near Buckingham Palace in 2008. In reality, she bought a retail park where the McDonald’s is located, because shops in the area were struggling.
Queen Elizabeth II has an estimated personal net worth of $500 million including one of the world’s largest stamp collections… AND a McDonald's.
They say nobody ever sees her there though.
Did you know in Stockholm, Sweden there's a speed camera lottery where good drivers can win money from the fines of speeding drivers?
The camera takes your license plate and records if you were speeding. Those people pay fines. If you are not speeding and you don't receive any tickets, most likely for a certain amount of time, you'll receive a portion of the money collected from those who were speeding.
Speeding in Sweden has been down since, with a difference of 22 per cent.
You wouldn’t want to speed with this system!! We should have it here in Halifax so we can get PAID.
Did you know the prototype of the chainsaw we are familiar with today was pioneered in the 18th century by two Scottish doctors as a surgical tool?
It was to aid in the process of difficult childbirth. That's how they created the chainsaw.
