... the can opener was invented in 1858 by American Ezra Warnet.

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died the same day-July 4th, 1826-the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Indepedence which they both signed. Adams last words were "Jefferson still survives" but Jefferson had died 3 hours before. Jefferson's last words were about his friend/rival Adams. (Can't remember the exact quote)

Hey, I actually did know that.
Did you know that chances are very good it wasn't Eli Whitney that invented the cotton gin but one of his slaves?  Sounds reasonable to me that the man who was actually having to do the work would invent an easier way to do it.

To put it into perspective, the 1980 Soviet squad is comparible to the 1992 US Olympic Basketball team.  That team (for those that might not remember) consisted of:

Charles Barkley

Magic Johnson

When The Flintstones first aired on ABC in 1960, it was strictly the story of a "modern stoneage fam-a-lee." However, by 1964, ratings began to sag and eventually hit a skid that even a special guest appearance by Mickey Marble himself couldn't reverse.

That is when producers decided to create a new character which would inject a little more "Yabba dabba doo" into the stale show. That character was The Great Gazoo, an alien banished from his home planet and sent to Earth for the explicit purpose of giving advice to Fred and Barney. While some enjoyed Gazoo's alien antics, equal numbers were appalled at the stunt casting which added a futuristic element to a prehistoric show, considering it even more offensive than The Jetsons Meet The Flintstones. The Great Gazoo was a controversial figure in his time.

But Where is He Now?

Working on a weekly, animated TV show is exhausting, and coupled with the stress of simultaneously being loved and hated by millions, it can burn out even the most resilient of performers. After ABC aired the final episode of The Flintstones on April 1, 1966, The Great Gazoo took some much-needed time off.

On October 8th, 1871 on a dry, windy day, following a long, hot summer the conditions were ripe for a fire.
A disaster of epic proportions. Afterwards, an entire town lay in ruins. Some reports put the number of dead
at about 1,200, others at 1,500, but nobody is 100% sure. There wasn't enough after the fire to tell. The intense
heat split boulders in two, firefighters dropped their buckets and ran for their lives. Witnesses said the very air was burning.

By now you're probably thinking about the Great Chicago Fire but you would be wrong. You would have to go 300 miles
north, to Wisconsin, and a boomtown called Peshtigo to locate the remnants of the fire that's been called the worst in
American history.

Did you know, the Pestigo fire occured on the very night, at the very instant that Chicago was also burning down. By the
time the few, suffering survivors of Peshtigo could get word to the outside world, Chicago had already grabbed the headlines.

Yeah, it's kinda crazy. I was in Baltimore last week, and it took me an hour to find beer. I'm glad I bought smokes in VA, because they are $4.86 a pack there ($2 more than here). Combined with their crappy roads and speed limits, indoor smoking bans and horrendous crime rate, Baltimore is the epitome of liberalism gone wrong.

You're exactly right!  It's weird, but dolphins rest quietly underwater while half of their brain remains alert, responding to their need to surface for air and to watch for predators.  They have to be at a low level of consciousness to recognize that their blowhole is at the surface or they will drown.  It's called "logging", but sounds more like catnapping to me.  We learned this at the Florida Aquarium, I promise I didn't just make it up.  ;)

Dreaming occurs in the R.E.M. stage (rapid-eye movement) of sleep, in which brain activity is high and signaled by rapid horizontal movements of the eyes. Sometimes dreams occur during the other stages of sleep; however, these are much less memorable and less clear. Dreams can last for a few seconds, or as long as twenty minutes. Dreams are a symbol and link to the inner core of the human subconscious. So, if you had a dream that you remember very clearly, chances are you were sleeping good!  :)

......that 22nd and 24th U S President Grover Cleveland had a rubber jaw? ???




Because of the financial depression of the country, Cleveland decided to have surgery performed in secrecy to avoid further market panic. The surgery occurred on July 1, to give Cleveland time to make a full recovery in time for the upcoming Congressional session. Under the guise of a vacation cruise, Cleveland and his surgeon, Dr. Joseph Bryant, left for New York. The surgeons operated aboard the yacht Oneida as it sailed off Long Island. The surgery was conducted through the President's mouth, to avoid any scars or other signs of surgery. The team, sedating Cleveland with nitrous oxide and ether, successfully removed parts of his upper left jaw and hard palate. The size of the tumor and the extent of the operation left Cleveland's mouth disfigured. During another surgery, an orthodontist fitted Cleveland with a hard rubber prosthesis that corrected his speech and restored his appearance.

When you see a bee on the ground that isn't moving, it’s not necessarily dead, it’s probably just dead tired from carrying lots of pollen and needs re-energizing. So if you mix a tiny bit of water with some sugar and let it drink it will give it the boost it needs to continue on its way.
