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.

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!?

Here's another useless fact:
"The extra "Joker" card is believed to have been invented by AmericanEuchre players who, when modifying the rules sometime during the 1860s,decided that an extra trump card was required. Originally he was called"The Best Bower" and then later "The Jolly Joker"."

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:

The longest interruption of a tv program in history
was when the BBC interrupted a Mickey Mouse cartoon
to announce that WWII had started:
over 6 years later, the cartoon was resumed,
in the exact same spot it had been cut.

Today in 1900, the train engineer who would come to be immortalized in song,
John "Casey"Jones, died in a train wreck in Mississippi.
He stayed at his post to try to keep his passengers safe,
and indeed he was the only one killed in the accident.
As a result of his dedication, he became an American folk hero.

John Hanson -- not George Washington -- was the first president of the U.S.
When the Congress met in 1781, the U.S. was governed by the Articles of
Confederation, which were adopted in 1777 and ratified by the states in 1781.
At that meeting, Congress elected John Hanson its "President of the U.S. in
Congress assembled." George Washington became the first president of the
U.S. under the U.S. Constitution in 1789.

The last one reminds me of a coworker who once asked, "Is Albuquerque a state?"

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
In Echallens, Switzerland in 1998, a 105-year-old Swiss teacher
was ordered to attend elementary school thanks to a computer
that cut a century off his age. The mix-up occured because a
list of local residents had only the last two digits of his birth date.
So the man, along with sixty-five 5 year-olds in the town,
received a letter ordering him to start school. The matter was
eventually taken care of and the computer system was changed.

Lead poisoning has been blamed for the fall of the Roman Empire.
Women became infertile from drinking from wine vessels whose
lead had dissolved in the wine, and the Roman upper classes died
out within a couple of centuries. The Romans used lead as a
sweetening agent and also as a cure for diarrhea. It all added up
to a massive self-poisoning of the population. ((wow!))

Fact #1 It suffers from shrinkage. Not counting its antenna, the iron tower is about 984 feet tall.
But on cold days it's roughly 6 inches shorter.
Fact #2 The paint is wet. Or at least some of it is. Twenty-five workers began brushwork in March on a top-to-bottom repainting job that's expected to take 18 months.
When done, they will have applied 60 tons of paint in three shades of brown
(darkest at the bottom, lightest at the top).

If an object has no molecules, the concept of temperature is meaningless.
That's why it's technically incorrect to speak of the "cold of outer space" --
space has no temperature, and is known as a "temperature sink," meaning
it drains heat out of things.

and the upper class would not eat them. They were so prolific that they were
collected and used as fertilizer for Pilgrims' vegetable gardens.


I can't remember ... What's that thing called?

You know ... that whatchamacallit on a pencil?
The metal band that connects
the pencil eraser to the end of the pencil.

Oh, yeah ... it's called a ferrule.

It covers an area of about 26,000 square miles, about the size of West Virginia.

Superstitions: BROOM

Do not lean a broom against a bed. The evil spirits in the broom will cast a spell on the bed.
If you sweep trash out the door after dark, it will bring a stranger to visit.
If someone is sweeping the floor and sweeps over your feet, you'll never get married.
(So THAT's why I'm single! ... LOL)
Never take a broom along when you move. Throw it out and buy a new one.
To prevent an unwelcome guest from returning,
sweep out the room they stayed in immediately after they leave.

Americans were asked what one modern convenience
they could not live without.
The most common answer ... Scotch tape.
