Being the only one who has done something is pretty cool, you can tell it to yourself in front of other people and feel really unique. Obviously it only happens a few times to tell yourself that we were the only one to do a particular thing, but we are going to give you some examples of quite astonishing things which for the blow have only been done once and for. the moment.
1. The only president of the United States to have never been elected
If we find in history several vice-presidents who have become presidents, the case of Gerald Ford remains unique: he was appointed vice-chairman by Richard Nixon without being elected to that post and then succeeded him as chairman after his resignation. He is therefore the only person in the United States who has never been elected, neither to the post of vice-president nor to that of president.

2. only person murdered in Antarctica
Rodney Marks, an Australian researcher who worked in Antarctica was murdered following methanol poisoning. The rather enigmatic circumstances of death led the investigation into a cul de sac and today doubts remain as to whether it was a suicide or a real murder.
3. The only man to have his ashes on the moon
Doctor of astronomy Eugene M. Shoemaker who, among other things, discovered Shoemaker's comet -Levy 9 is the only person whose ashes are on the moon, because they were sent above as a tribute after his death. It's a beautiful tribute.

4 . Giving birth to sixty-nine babies
This is the record for the number of births held by Valentina Vassilyev and which has never been equaled since the 17th century. A total of 29 deliveries for 69 children: 16 pairs of twins, 7 births of triplets and 4 of quadruplets. And then only children too, dummies. Sacred record.
5. The first to cross the sound barrier in free fall
Felix Baumgartner is the first man to cross the sound barrier in free fall and at the same time considering the distance achieved during his free fall it was the least of things (4.20 minutes of fall anyway). You can watch his feat on video when he jumped from space, and already laughedn to say "I have already jumped out of space" is class.
6. The only person to have been clinically dead for more than 15 hours
What is called Lazarus syndrome consists of a self-resuscitation of the heart after a more or less long time of stop . The only person to have been clinically dead for more than 15 hours is Velma Thomas who was left dead for almost 5 pm before her heart started beating again.
7. The only man to have ridden a motorbike on Mount Everest
If we had already told you about the horrible things about the ascent of Everest we were careful not to tell you something more cheerful: Shinki Kazama is the only man to rode a motorcycle up to half the height of Everest, and that's cool.

8. The only doctor to have killed three people during an operation (on one patient)
Well, take it with a grain of salt, but doctor Robert Liston would probably have accidentally killed three people during the operation of a single patient. Already the patient himself he was amputating by timing himself, an assistant in who he would have cut a finger and a spectator whose his knife would have cut the coat in haste and who would have made an arheart failure thinking he was going to die. That's a lot but obviously the anecdote is authentic, so it's a mortality rate of 300% and it's a good score.
9. The only person to have been around the world in one vehicle
A modified jeep that could navigate as well as drive, and voila. Crossings of oceans, continents and a lot of setbacks during preparation (almost ten years before he got there) but Ben Carlin succeeded in his project and remains the first and only man to have done this. It's beautiful.

10. The only person with dwarfism and gigantism
The case of Adam Rainer is unique in its kind sincewas born with dwarfism and was 1.18 m tall until the age of 21. It was because of a tumor that his body generated a large dose of growth hormones, and Rainer grew almost a meter in his twenties. By measuring 2.34 m at the end of his life he almost doubled his height after reaching adulthood.
There are not only unique things, there are also first times, like the first times at the cinema . Yeah I'm pushing a bit to get past this top but it's pretty cool.
