14341First true web-swinging videogameSpider-Man 2first, 01 January 2004Spider-Man 2, the official game of the 2004 movie, was the first Spider-Man game to offer true web-swinging, in which Spider-Man’s webs must actually attach to buildings and physically alter his trajectory. This innovation gave players greater freedom of movement, and the ability to swing from skyscrapers all the way down to the street level. In all his previous 3D games, Spidey’s webs had mysteriously attached to the sky above him and only allowed him to swing straight ahead.Guinness World Records Gamers’ Edition 2009.

14362First domestication of dogsPalaeolithic humansUnknown, eastern Asia29 January 2003The earliest domestication dogs (Canis familiaris) is thought to have been done by Palaeolithic humans in east Asia, approximately 15,000 years ago, as they successfully bred aggression out of wolves (Canis lupus).Much of the genetic research by Peter Savolainen (Sweden) of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, found that due to the high genetic diversity of dogs in east Asia, it suggested that these dogs had been domesticated the longest. The domestication of dogs preceeded that of other animals such as sheep, pigs, cattle and horses. The earliest remains of a domesticated dog are believed to be 14,000 years old and were found in Germany.

14364Longest riverThe River NileThe Nile is credited as the longest river in the world. Its main source is Lake Victoria in east central Africa. From its farthest stream in Burundi, it extends 6,695 km (4,160 miles) in length.The two longest rivers in the world are the Nile, flowing into the Mediterranean, and the Amazon, flowing into the South Atlantic. Which is the longer is more a matter of definition than simple measurement.Not until 1971 was the true source of the Amazon discovered, by Loren McIntyre (USA) in the snow-covered Andes of southern Peru.The Amazon begins with snowbound lakes and brooks-the actual source has been named Laguna McIntyre-which converge to form the Apurimac.This joins other streams to become the Ene, the Tambo and then the Ucayali. From the confluence of the Ucayali and the Marañón the river is called the Amazon for the final 3,700 km (2,300 miles) as it flows through Brazil into the Atlantic Ocean.The Amazon has several mouths, which widen towards the sea, so that the exact point where the river ends is uncertain. If the Par estuary (the most distant mouth) is counted, its length is approximately 6,750 km (4,195 miles).The Nile is credited as the longest river in the world.
