11013First use of gas warfareUnknownArchaeologists working on the site of an old Roman garrison town of Dura-Europos in Eastern Syria have found what is believed to be the earliest evidence of gas warfare. Around 254 AD, the Romans, in anticipation of an attack on the city, strengthened the defences. Amongst the many techniques used by the Persians in attacking the city, in about 256 AD, was the digging of many tunnels and mines to try and enter the city. Bitumen and sulphur crystals were ignited in some of these tunnels and the flow of air, aided possibly by bellows and chimneys, helped to generate and distribute their noxious fumes. In one such mine complex, the remains of 20 Roman soldiers have been found. It is believed that for so many men to have been killed in such a small space it must have required an agent that acted very quickly, such as the fumes from bitumen and sulphur. The soldiers would have been overcome in seconds and probably dead in minutes.

11021Longest binary number memorised in 5 minutesBen PridmoreUnited Kingdom, London01 January 2008Binary is another name for base-2 numbering. The everyday numbers we’re used to counting with are base-10, meaning there are 10 basic numbers – 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 – from which all others are constructed. For example, 625 means there are 6 hundreds (10x10), 2 tens (10s) and 5 units. In binary there are just 2 basic numbers, 0 and 1. The number 6 would be written 110 – 1 four (2x2) plus 1 two (2s) plus zero units. In 2008, British man Ben Pridmore set the world record for memorising the most binary digits in five minutes – accurately reciting every digit from a randomly generated sequence 930 digits long. Pridmore set his impressive record at the 2008 UK Memory Championships in London, of which he was also the overall winner.
