- Library of Alexandria, Colossus of Rhodes, and Pop Rocks
Library of Alexandria was founded at the beginning of the third century B.C. and was believed to have been the largest library in the Mediterranean world. There is much debate about how and when it was destroyed.
Colossus of Rhodes was a statue of the patron God Helios that stood at the entrance to the harbor of the island of Rhodes in Greece until an earthquake destroyed it in 282 B.Cmonly known as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Pop Rocks were a candy first introduced in 1975, from which small amounts of carbonation are released causing a popping sensation in the mouth and a sizzling noise. Fairly popular in the 80s, there was even an urban myth about how someone who swallowed pop rocks followed by a carbonated beverage died due the gas released causing the person’s stomach to explode.Detalles
