Middle East oil strike

In 1908, shortly after 4:00 am, the first major Middle East oil strike was made at Masjid-i-Sulaiman, Persia. A gusher of petroleum rose 50-ft above the top of the drilling rig and smothered the drillers. Drilling at this site began in Jan 1908, under chief engineer George B. Reynolds. It was just two days short of 7 years since Shah Muzaffar al-Din had signed the concession agreement with William Knox D'Arcy. From 1905, D'Arcy had financial assistance from the Burmah Oil Company. In 1909, Anglo-Persian Oil was formed to develop the oil field, forerunner of British Petroleum (BP). Oil seepages had been noted for centuries in persia, where the oozings were used for such purposes as the caulking of boats and the binding of bricks.*

Goldfish burial

Little eight-year-old Nancy was in the garden filling in a hole when her neighbor peered over the fence. Interested in what the youngster was doing, he asked: "What are you doing there, Nancy?"

"My goldfish died," Nancy sobbed. "And I've just buried him."

The obnoxious neighbor laughed and said condescendingly: "That's a really big hole for a little goldfish, don't you think?"

Nancy patted down the last heap of earth with her shovel and replied: "That's because he's inside your cat."
