    The National Anthem of Greece was written with 158 verses, although in modern times only the first two verses are observed. It is the longest National Anthem in the world!:confused:;)

    1. It takes 17 muscles to smile and 43 to frown. Unless you’re trying to give your face a bit of a workout, smiling is a much easier option for most of us. Anyone who’s ever scowled, squinted or frowned for a long period of time knows how it tires out the face which doesn’t do a thing to improve your mood.

    Clouds are considered lucky in the arid climate of Iran. To tell someone they are blessed, you would say, ‘Your sky is always filled with clouds.’
