Here is a strange fact about last words.

In October of 2011 my brother bought a new label printing machine. He had a hard time getting the machine set-up. When he finally got the thing working correctly, he was ecstatic so he printed a label with the words "WoW Oh WoW".

That was on October 5th. That is an easy date to remember because that is the same day Steve Jobs died.

What makes it more memorable is that Steve Jobs' last words were "Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow".

My brother peeled that label and affixed it to the front of his monitor where he sees it everyday.

Facial tissue has been used for centuries in Japan, in the form of washi (和紙) or Japanese tissue, as described in this 17th-century European account of the voyage of Hasekura Tsunenaga:
"They blow their noses in soft silky papers the size of a hand, which they never use twice, so that they throw them on the ground after usage, and they were delighted to see our people around them precipitate themselves to pick them up."[2]
In 1924 facial tissue as it is known today was first introduced by Kimberly-Clark as Kleenex. It was invented as a means to remove cold cream. Early advertisements linked Kleenex to Hollywood makeup departments and sometimes included endorsements from movie stars (Helen Hayes and Jean Harlow) who used Kleenex to remove their theatrical makeup with cold cream. It was the customers that started to use Kleenex as a disposable handkerchief, and a reader review in 1926 by a newspaper in Peoria, Illinois found that 60% of the users used it for blowing their nose.[3]

Maybe "God" was smart enough to "make them" with belly buttons, so as to not make their children ask any questions.
