Starting a thread to give you a
"Totally Useless Fact Of The Day"
(might come in handy playing Trivial Pursuit!) LOL
Here is today's useless fact:

In the blockbuster hit, E.T., the Extra Terrestrial (1982), Harrison
Ford was cast as the school principal, but his only scene was cut.
Director Steven Spielberg decided his presence in the film would be
too distracting. Ford's wife Melissa Mathison wrote E.T.'s screenplay.

I'm trying to think of another useless fact, but I can't come up with anything!
Okay, here's one: The song title, Mr. Mojo Risin", by the Doors, is an anagram of Jim Morrison's name.

Pajamas are accepted as standard daytime wearing apparel.

But NOT in the United States, you got that, guys!?

Great additions! I did not know all of that!
Hey, who has that picture of the kitten being held up at gun point?
I lost it. Could have used it here:
The robbery phrase "Hands Up" originated in British Columbia. Bill
Miner, an American known as the Gentleman Bandit, is said to have
first used the phrase while robbing a Canadian Pacific Railways
train in Mission Junction, British Columbia in 1904.
Edit:
And thanks to Breezey's quick fingers ... here's a hold up:

Ivory bar soap floating was a mistake.
They had been over-mixing the soap formula causing excess air bubbles that made it float.
Customers wrote and told how much they loved that it floated, and it has floated ever since.

The rectal temperature of the Icelandic codfish is 34 degrees F.

In the 1940s, the FCC assigned television's Channel 1 to mobile services
(two-way radios in taxicabs, for instance)
but did not re-number the other channel assignments.
That is why your TV set has channels 2 and up, but no channel 1.

What is the difference between a wharf and a pier you ask?
A pier runs perpendicular to the shoreline,

Muppets creator Jim Henson first created Kermit in 1955 -- as a lizard.
He was made from Henson's mother's coat and two halfs of a Ping-Pong ball
(no flipper feet or eleven-point collar). He didn't become a frog until 1968.

The word 'pound' is abbreviated 'lb.' after the constellation 'libra'
because it means 'pound' in Latin, and also 'scales'.
The abbreviation for the British Pound Sterling comes from
the same source: it is an 'L' for Libra/Lb. with a stroke through it to indicate abbreviation.
Same goes for the Italian lira, which uses the same abbreviation ('lira' coming from 'libra').
So British currency (before it went metric) was always quoted as "pounds/shillings/pence",
abbreviated "L/s/d" (libra/solidus/denarius).

Jack, I always wondered what the difference was between a wharf and a pier. What about a dock?

The word 'byte' is a contraction of 'by eight.'.

A rarity in birds, geese are among the very few in which the family stays together
at the end of the breeding season. Parents and the young raised during the
summer establish strong family bonds and do not break up for about a year.
In the fall, geese migrate in flocks that contain other family units,
and each family stays together on the wintering grounds.
