"Did Blackbeard really wear burning brands in his beard?" is a good question; "What items were worn in some other famous beards? Also a good question.

Photos of the contents of Abraham Lincoln's pockets: good submission. Contents from the pockets linking to as yet undiscovered historical realization? Even better!

The wearing of pith helmets is strongly encouraged.

Why could the rich not dress themselves?

I've been watching Downtown Abbey and wondering why each rich lady needs a "lady's maid" to take care of them. Seems like an unnecessary job. The rich need servants to help them dress while the servants are fully capable of dressing themselves.
