Fascinating Facts:
The USA has a new president in Joe Biden but did you know one of his predecessors Thomas Jefferson invented the swivel chair. Also, George HW Bush inspired a Japanese word, "Bushusuru," which means "to do the Bush thing." What thing, you ask? Vomiting in public, as Bush did all over the Japanese Prime Minister in 1992. Teddy Bears were named after Theodore Roosevelt after he refused to shoot a bear cub while out hunting.
