When people freaked out on march 18 because it was "John Doe day" for ROBLOX meaning some default character from the begining of the site was coming to hack everyone, John Doe is actually just a name for someone who is an unidentified man who is unable to tell hospital staff there name and have no ID. and same for Jane Doe accept for with a girl. THE MAJORITY OF ROBLOX USERS FLIPPED FOR AN UNIDENTIFIED MAN WHO ISN'T REAL...That's pathetic.
The Roundhay Garden Scene from 1888 was the oldest film ever discovered. It lasted for 2 seconds.
The earliest sound recording device was called the phonautograph invented by Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville. The device wasn't meant to play sound but record sound with a stylus scratching waves on a piece of paper like a seismograph. With modern technology, people were able to obtain these recordings and convert them into audio. The sound quality is so low to the point where they sound quite eerie. You can listen to the famous Au Claire de la Lune phonautograph recording on YouTube.
