In the past women used to have many babies which was not because they loved the ‘visiting stork’ a lot. The truth is, women back in the day probably never heard of the best oral contraceptive method ever – saying “No”, repeatedly – until the man understood that he was not going to get any fun inside the sheets unless he uses protection.

It’s impossible to tell exactly when beauty contests or beauty pageants began, but they certainly existed since antiquity. For example, in Troy, in Ellas, on Lesbos Island, in ancient China etc, beauty pageants were a form of entertainment. Even in the Ottoman Empire, despite strict Islamic morals, rulers entertained themselves with competitions to choose the most gorgeous wife in their harem.

In ancient Amphipolis,near Serres (northern Greece, 370 miles (600km) north of Athens), archaeolgists unearthed an impressive burial mound the colossal size of which (497 meters long and three meters high-the biggest tomb found in Greece, it’s ten times larger than that of Alexander’s father, Philip II of Macedon.) suggests that the tomb was built for someone extremely important and could belong to the wife and son of Alexander the Great, Roxane and Alexander IV.
