The Titanic

You really can find fascinating nuggets of information on the Internet.

For example, did you know that the Titanic actually carried not just her passengers, but also 12,000 jars of mayonnaise? Not for her own consumption, mind you; back then, Hellmann's Mayonnaise was made in England, and these were a shipment that was ultimately destined for Mexico.

The Mexicans were devastated when the ship sank and took the mayonnaise with her, too, so devastated in fact that they created a public holiday to commemorate the event, one that is still celebrated today.

You may have heard of it — it's called Sinko de Mayo.
