I recently received an e-mail containing several trivia items. It was entitled “Trivia at its best.” One of the items was that in ancient Egypt, priests plucked EVERY hair from their bodies, including their eyebrows and eyelashes! I wonder how long it took them to do that. The eyelash part must have been painful.
I am not contemplating doing that, but I admire their persistence.
I was wondering if this is an urban legend, but several other items on the list are true.
