Long before the Brothers Grimm popularized their version of the story, 14th century peasants in Italy used to tell a story called “La finta nonna”, which means “the false grandmother”. While mostly similar to the version that we know now, there are some key differences. First of all, the girl in the story does not wear a red hood, the wolf is actually a werewolf, and at the end of the story, he wins (no woodsman to save the day).
Also, rather than simply eating the girl’s grandmother himself, the werewolf tricks Little Red Riding Hood into joining him for the meal. In some versions, the werewolf tricks Red Riding Hood into taking off her clothes, and then he eats her when they’re in bed. In other versions, she escapes.
The first written version of the story was Charles Perrault’s Le Petit Chaperon Rouge. This was the first time the red hood is added to the story. It was intended to be a cautionary tale for young women, warning them about men, represented by the wolf. The Brothers Grimm based their version of the story on Perrault’s. However, they added the happy ending where a huntsman shows up to rescue Little Red Riding Hood and her grandmother from the wolf’s stomach.
The combined populations of China, India, the United States, Indonesia, Brazil, and Pakistan make up 49.8% of the entire world’s population. That means that there are nearly as many people living in just those 6 countries than in the 187 (or more) other sovereign states in the world. China and India are leading the world, with both countries making 36.62% percent of the world.
They call it Bagel Head, and it's exactly what it sounds like. A technician injects saline solution into your forehead, then presses his or her thumb in the middle to make the bump look like a bagel. The transformation is only temporary, as your body absorbs the saline solution.
