The Baltimore Bullet is the nickname for Baltimore native Michael Phelps, the most prolific athlete in Olympic history. Michael Phelps has already beaten the gold medal record of nine, and has eleven as of tonight. He also stands to break Mark Spitz's record of seven gold medals in any one Olympics.

1. Constructed in 1969, the World's Largest Six Pack belongs to the City Brewery in La Crosse, Wisconsin. According to the sign in front of the six pack, the six "beers" contain a total of 22,220 barrels of beer, which is 688,200 gallons. This is enough to fill 7,340,796 cans. Also, placed end-to-end, these beer cans would run 565 miles long. Even more amazing, the World's Largest Six Pack would provide a single person a six pack daily for 3,351 years. Wow!
