Adolf Hitler was recommended to the Nobel committee in 1939, just three short months before he led Germany to invade Poland and start World War II. Former Soviet Union leader, Josef Stalin, was nominated twice: in 1945 and 1948. Benito Mussolini was nominated for the 1935 Nobel Peace Prize, the same year the Italian Fascist Dictator invaded Ethiopia.

The Blue Whale’s tongue weighs around 5,952 pounds, about the size of an average Asian Elephant and its heart weighs about 1,300 pounds and is the largest known in any animal. Not only is the heart similar in size to a mini-cooper car, but it is also comparable in weight. By comparison, the largest known dinosaur of the Mesozoic Era was Argentinosaurus, which is estimated to have weighed up to about half the weight of the largest blue whales.
