5863First ballpoint penLadislo BirofirstHungary, 01 January 1938Hungarian journalist Ladislo Biro created the first ball-point pen with his brother George in 1938. Biro took his inspiration from watching newspaper ink dry quickly, leaving the paper smudge-free. Since this thicker ink would not flow from a conventional pen nib, he revolutionised pen design with the idea of a ball-point. The first Biro went on sale in 1944 and cost the equivalent of £60 today.The Royal Air Force was one of the first organisations to use the Biro as they needed a pen, unlike the fountain, that would not leak at high altitudes.The principle of the ball point can be found to date back to an 1888 patent owned by John. J Loud for a product he had designed to mark leather.

5878Longest neckWomen of the Padaung or Kareni tribe40 centimetre(s)Burma, MyanmarThe maximum known extension of a human neck is 40 cm (15.75 in) and was created by the successive fitting of copper coils, as practiced by the women of the Padaung or Kareni tribe of Myanmar (Burma) as a sign of beauty. Their necks eventually become so long and weak that they cannot support their heads without the coils. In some tribes the coils are removed to punish women who have committed adultery. Only initial discomfort is reported after the coils are set, yet the distance from earlobe to collarbone lengthens to more than double the average. Legend says that the rings protect women from the tiger that killed an ancient princess. Because the practice can be fatal if the coils are removed, it has been increasingly discouraged in modern times. However, tourist demand has recently revived this dangerous practice, with Paduang tribe girls being initiated as early as five years old.
