1) When TWISTER was introduced in 1966, it was denounced by critics as "sex in a box".
2) There are more life forms living on your skin than there are people on the planet.
3) Otters sleep holding hands.
4) OJ Simpson was originally cast to play Terminator, but the studio was afraid that no one would buy him as a remorseless killer.
5) Leonardo Da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time.
6) The last man to walk on the moon, Gene Cernan, promised his daughter he'd write his initials on the moon. He did, and her initials, "TDC", will probably be on the moon for tens of thousands of years.
7) The Mimic Octopus can not only change colors, but will mimic the shapes of other animals, like the flounder, lion fish and sea snakes.

-Ang salitang "deadline" ay lumutang sa panahon ng Civil war sa U.S. May linyang nakadrawing malapit sa Civil war prison. Babarilin ang sinumang preso na magtatangkang lumampas sa linya.Kamatayan ang katumbas ng paglampas sa linya kaya nabuo ang salitang "deadline"

-Sinasamba ng mga Egyptians ang sibuyas. Kapag inililibing ang Pharaoh, nagbabaon din ng sibuyas sa kanilang hukay dahil simbolo ito ng eternal life.

During a 1956 speech for his campaign of de-Stalinization, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev was asked by an unseen audience member why, as an advisor to the dictator, he had never stopped Stalin from committing his atrocities. Khrushchev immediately lashed out, “Who said that?” The room grew quiet. Khrushchev repeated his query to more silence, waited a beat, and then said, “Well, now you understand why.”

-Bakit "mayday" ang sinasabe kapag may problema sa barko o eroplano? Ang "Help me" sa French ay m'aidez at ang pronounciation ay sounds like "mayday".
-Ang ibig sabihin ng English expression na "it may cost you an arm and a leg" ay expensive or mahal. Ang pinagmulan ng expression na ito;Noong panahon ay hindi pa uso ang camera kaya ang imahe ay ginagawa sa pamamagitan ng painting o scuplturing.Mas mura kung mukha lang ang ipipinta ngunit mahal kung kasamang ipipinta ang iyong mga kamay at legs.

1) Fredric Baur invented the Pringles can. When he passed away in 2008, his ashes were buried in one.

2) Ben & Jerry learned how to make ice cream by taking a $5 correspondence course offered by Penn State. (They decided to split one course.)

3) When the mummy of Ramses II was sent to France in the mid-1970s, it was issued a passport. Ramses' occupation? "King (deceased)."

4) In 1939, Hitler's nephew wrote an article called "Why I Hate My Uncle." He came to the U.S., served in the Navy, and settled on Long Island.

5) Only female mosquitoes will bite you.

6) In 1991, Wayne Allwine, the voice of Mickey Mouse, married Russi Taylor—the voice of Minnie. (Awww!)

7) The sum of all the numbers on a roulette wheel is 666.

8 ) Horses can't vomit.

9) Hallmark now sells a line of "encouragement" cards you can send to people who've lost their job.

10) When asked to name a color, 60% of any sample will name the color “red.”

Instructive    :o
