Mind Blowing Facts

1.Adding the number 4 to the end of Facebook’s URL will automatically direct you to Mark Zuckerberg’s wall
Just in case you’re not familiar with the term “URL” – type in this web address: We’re not sure why Zuckerberg chose the fourth ID number instead of number 1, but this is a quick and easy way to get to the original Facebook wall that is owned by its creator. Adding the numbers 5 or 6 to the end of the URL will take you to the respective profiles of Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz, Facebook co-founders and Mark’s former college roommates. Tacking a 7 onto the web address leads to the profile of Arie Hasit, another good friend of Zuckerberg from his days at Harvard.

3.In a strange coincidence, three U.S. Presidents died on the Fourth of July. Two of them died mere hours apart!
John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe all died on July 4th. Adams and Jefferson , who both signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 died on exactly the same day: July 4, 1826. Thomas Jefferson drafted the original Declaration of Independence which John Adams vigorously defended in the Continental Congress, so it was fitting that they both died on the fiftieth anniversary of when the Declaration was adopted.
Adams spent his last day celebrating the Fourth of July with a toast, “Independence Forever!” Not knowing that Jefferson had already died just hours before, Adams, on his death bed muttered “Thomas Jefferson lives” before he himself died.
President James Monroe died on July 4, 1831, exactly five years after Adams and Jefferson died.
