Sorry but Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico is the oldest continually inhabit community in North America. It's been continually inhabit for over 2000 years, before Spain was Spain. Several other Pueblos throughout New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado, have been continually inhabit for 1000+ years. Make them the oldest communities in North America. You seem to forget the native Americans we're here first.

You might think the USA is "Young" but its actually technically older than France and Italy. France is on its Fifth Republic, which only came into place in 1962. Italy's Republic was formed in 1946. *the more you know*

The invention of the bicycle is a very interesting topic to think about because if you consider the technology that is required to produce the simplest bicycle, that tech has been around since the Roman era (minus the rubber for tires, however they could have just used solid wood wheels). So there is really no reason why humans couldn't have been pedaling themselves around 2000 years ago. It's incredible that nobody thought of that until the mid 19th century!

Try this one.. How long ago did they quit making pencils with lead, and start making them with graphite? 100 years ago? 200 years ago?? The answer is... Pencils were NEVER made with lead to write with. They have been made with graphite since they were first invented.

The last execution by guillotine was in 1977, but the last _public_ execution by guillotine was on June 17, 1939, of Eugen Weidmann. It was filmed from an apartment window (you can find the film on YouTube) and was witnessed by a 17-year-old Christopher Lee.

There is a tree somewhere in California that was around before the pyramids as well - and it is still living today. Appropriately named Methuselah, the tree - a bristlecone pine is estimated to be over 4,850 years old. It is in a protected location. The oldest pyramid by comparison is about 4,600 years old.

Another company that's older than you'd think: Husqvarna. You've seen their mowers and weed-eaters, but they made motorcycles before Harley-Davidson did. But they're even older than that. Husqvarna originally started out making muskets in 1689. The logo for Husqvarna is supposed to to be the end of a gun barrel.
