History Buffs Share The Juicy Facts You Never Learned In School

For thousands of students around the world, the subject of history is a boring, groan-inducing, snoozefest. There are only so many wars and so many treaties one can learn about in exceedingly boring detail. History doesn't have to be lame, though. Think about it. Exciting, salacious, hilarious, scandalous things happen all the time. There's no reason to think things were any less gossip-worthy back then. Reddit users came together to share their knowledge when one user asked:

We picked 25 facts to share with you. Clearly things got NSFW, so be warned; clicking next could lead to you needing brain bleach... or having new ideas to try out.

That one of the single biggest problems on the Lewis and Clark expedition was that they ran out of mercury after using it to treat rampant STDs (mainly syphilis). In fact, they used so much of it, that some of their campsites (they had more than 600 in the journey) have been positively identified by literally measuring the mercury in the latrines they dug nearby.

Also, that York, Clark's one slave he brought along on the trip, was SO exotic to many of the native tribes they passed, that many thought he was magical (and FAR more interesting than the two dozen white people around him). Many native women wanted to (and did) have sex with him and several chiefs apparently offered up their daughters to him for the night in hopes that he would impregnate them and leave some of his magic powers behind to bless the tribe.
