Subject: Things you never knew about ...

Written By: whistledog on 06/19/09 at 3:13 pm

... until you saw it in a Movie or a TV Show, or maybe a song you never knew was done by someone else?



♦ When 'Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle' came out, I had no idea what White Castle was, nor had I ever heard of it before.  Before I saw trailers for the film, I thought it was a family movie about a medieval land or something.  Um yeah, not medieval, and not so much a family film LOL


♦ The first time I ever heard of a 401k was on TV, and for the longest time, I never knew what it was.  In Canada, we call it a "Pension" and always assumed that term was global.

White Castle was a burger chain

There's many cartoons & movies I had no ideas were remakes or updated versions (as a kid) until later on...

I never used to know the 70s hit 'Say You Love Me' was by Fleetwood Mac.  In Canada, it was also a major hit for singer Shirley Eikhard, and so popular her version was, I know lots of people who also didn't know it was a Fleetwood Mac original.

In 1975....I was shocked (and embarrassed) to discover this great "new" song I heard on the radio was actually Back In The USSR by The Beatles!!!  :-\\

I didn't know you could ignite hair spray by spraying it in front of a lighter until I saw it done on some show!

When I was in 7th grade, this one girl did that with a can of Aqua Net in the girl's P.E. locker room!  :o  Luckily nobody got hurt (and lucky for her there were no teachers around when she did it!).

Here's a Macgyver-esque trick:

Fill a water pistol with hairspray.  Then take a long match and tape it to the end of the gun, with the tip of the match just slightly ahead of the barrel of the gun.  Strike the match against a brick wall, and fire at will!  Homemade flame throwers are dangerous though.  Kids, don't try this at home ;D

I would have started an RRSP when I was 16 years old!

I never knew hollywood actors Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick were married until a few years ago. My mom's like what is wrong with you they have been married for a long time.

I didn;t knew Trent Lott or Newt Gingrich were former speakers of the house in the 90's until I started following politics like 7 months ago. Both Lott and Gingrich were fired by their respective presidential administrations.
