In 2001 Pizza Hut made a delivery to the International Space Station. Russians were paid $1 million to transport the Pizza.

'Live Free or Die' is the slogan on New Hampshire license plates. They are made by prisoners in the state prison in Concord.

Two days before they signed off on the Constitution in 1787, the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention gathered in a tavern. The preserved bill from the evening shows they drank 54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, eight of whiskey, 22 of porter, eight of hard cider, 12 of beer and seven bowls of alcoholic punch.

Off subject, are supressors NFA items for air rifles?

The United Nations has formed a contingency plan in case aliens directly contact us.

A buttload really is a measure of volume. One buttload is equal to 126 gallons. So next time you say you have a buttload of something....

In 2005, Iraqi terrorists held an action figure hostage and tried to claim that it was a U.S. Soldier.

The Okie Corral

Was it one of those new 3-foot tall ones? Because those things creep me out a little bit.

Nevermind - now I see the picture.

President Lincoln formed the Secret Service on the same day that he was assassinated.

Evian (the bottled water) spelled backwards is "naive.

For beer commercials, they add liquid detergent to the beer to make it foam more.

The only photos taken at the time of Robert Kennedy was shot were seized by the LAPD. A judge ordered them sealed for 20 years. When they were finally set to be released, they were somehow stolen from the car of the courier transporting them.

Food in advertisements would be inedible if you tried to eat it - for example with fast food, burgers are cooked just enough to get a color and the "grill marks" are added artificially and the fries are raw.

When I visited Japan on business, the restaurants often had displays of their plated foods in glass cases along the sidewalk. I was told it's all artificial, and big business in Japan. It looked absolutely real, right down to the texture of the Miso soup and sashimi pieces. Fortunately the restaurant menus also had photos to go with the descriptions I couldn't read, so between that and the window displays I could point at, I didn't go hungry.

The detail in those phony plates of food was impressive.

Legend has long held that the British will be forced to relinquish control of Gibraltar when the Macaques that inhabit that land mass die off. It just so happens that during WWII, a plague wiped out most of the macaques on Gibraltar and left the British Garrison on that strategic land mass terrified that they were about to be blasted off of that rock.

So bad did these fears and resulting morale problems become among British soldiers stationed there that Winston Churchill personally authorized several dozen top secret flights from North Africa to airlift in planeloads of new Macaques and keep the Gibraltar population going.

Saw a show where they were making a roast turkey photo shoot. Raw turkey was airbrushed. They sliced it and used a steamer to cook the first mm of meat. Ewwww.

The Frank Capra film "It's a Wonderful Life" (1946) was a box office disappointment when it played in theatres. Movie goers were more interested in seeing movies about the war such as William Wyler's The Best Years of Our Lives (1946),

For the scene that required Donna Reed to throw a rock into the window of the Granville House, Frank Capra hired a marksman to shoot it out for her on cue. To everyone's amazement, Donna Reed broke the window with true aim and heft without the assistance of the hired marksman. Reed had played baseball in high school and had a strong throwing arm.

In 1961 a B-52 carrying several nuclear bombs broke up in flight over North Carolina. Most of its bombs were destroyed on breakup, but one bomb, a 4 megaton monster, actually deployed. It fell to Earth with all of it's arming switches activated, except for one low voltage dynamo switch that failed to engage in spite of a firing signal being sent to it when the bomb hit the ground.

Had that bomb ground-detonated under the atmospheric conditions that existed that day, it would have deposited lethal amounts of radioactive fallout as far away as Washington, D.C. and even New York.

I absolutely love this one.

Anatidaephobia: The fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.

Somehow I imagine this is not a common phobia.

LOL! I guess it's all relative, but personally I wouldn't want to be anywhere downwind from EITHER of them should one of them go "bang!".
