    When the odd digits of 77,210,069,689 are added to its even digits, the total equals its square root.

    77,199 + 200,668 = 277,867

    There are two islands called "Necker Island". The one owned by Sir Richard Branson is in the British Virgin Islands. The other is in the Hawaiian archipelago. The names are completely coincidental.

    The flag of Haiti, the former French colony and first black republic, is a red and blue bicolour because, supposedly, the first President wanted a French flag with the white taken out.

    Kryptonite was not invented in the Superman comics. It was invented on the radio series "The Adventures of Superman", because the shows were broadcast live and Superman's voice actor, Bud Collyer, wanted some time off.
