  • The World's Largest Burger King is on Gulf Street, in Kuwait
  • 1912 October 14th in Milwaukee, an assassin attempted to kill Theodore Roosevelt, the attempt was not successful. Roosevelt survived because the bullet hit his manuscript and eyeglass carrier before reaching his body.  
    • He coined the term Bull Moose Party from the incident when he said, "I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot, but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.   The bullet is in me now, so that i cannot make a very long speech, but I will try my best." He was one tough Rough Rider.    "I can tell you with absolute truthfulness that I am very much uninterested in whether I am shot or not."
