Исторические документы утверждают, что жене русского крестьянина Федора Васильева, имя которой история не сохранила, принадлежит мировой рекорд по количеству рожденных детей. Согласно сообщению, отправленному в Москву монахами Никольского монастыря, в промежутке между 1725 и 1765 годами Васильевой удалось произвести на свет 16 пар близнецов, семь раз разродиться тройней, а четыре раза — четверней. Рожала она, соответственно, 27 раз, итого в семье Васильевых было 69 детей.

In 1898, 14 years before the sinking of the Titanic, fantasy writer Morgan Robertson wrote the novella Futility, which told the story of a ship that was sunk — and which bore the name The Titan. But it wasn’t just the name where we can see an eerie coincidence. Both the fictional and real ship were described as unsinkable, had similar technical characteristics, lacked a suitable number of lifeboats, and collided with icebergs in the North Atlantic.
