Tomatoes were originally yellow: hence the Italian name pomodoro ('golden apple'). Red tomatoes came later, discovered in Mexico by two Jesuit priests who brought their seeds back to Europe.

Quiet Riot's Cum on Feel the Noize is their most famous song, and it is truly an amazing accomplishment, because the band tried their best to make sure it was the worst song they'd ever recorded.

They were forced by the management at Pasha records to cover it, doing a half-assed take that somehow turned out to be awesome. Slade hate Quiet Riot because they had more success with the track and because people always assume it's a QR original. Unfortunately for QR, their singer Kevin Dubrow (R.I.P) had a big, big mouth and halted their meteroic rise to superstardom with some ill-advised comments. Add to this the fact that they followed up "Metal Health" with practically, a carbon copy in "Condition Critical" complete with "Mama We're All Crazy Now" (another Slade song).

In Denmark, hedgehogs are protected by law. It is illegal to capture or hurt them, but it is accepted to house underweight hedgehogs found out during winter. Garden owners are encouraged to attract hedgehogs with a bit of dry cat food, to utilize their pest control abilities

     William Shatner has done many strange films, but the strangest has to be INCUBUS, a 1965 fantasy flick where the dialogue is done in the artificial language Esperanto.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Adam West got the role of Batman primarily due to his playing a James Bond parody in a Nestlé Quik ad. 

Two years after the Batman series ended, he was offered the actual role of James Bond for the movie Diamonds Are Forever but he turned it down because he thought James Bond should always be played by somebody British.

There is something called "Gay Days" at Disney theme parks, but....
Disney steadfastly refuses to acknowledge that Gay Days is a thing (despite tens of thousands of participants), but that doesn't stop them from being the target of mass protest, veiled threats and sometimes even implied violence by the religious right (for... failing to stop it, we guess?).

The American Family Association sends "undercover photographers" to every Gay Days celebration, attempting to photograph "sexual misconduct," (which is totally not just a convenient excuse for some fundamentalist to volunteer for the cameraman position at a gay orgy, you know, "for the cause.") The Christian Action Network has a long-standing 10 year boycott of all Disney products in response to Gay Days, even going so far as to protest in Washington D.C. Their official petition states that they are "shocked and outraged" that Disney has transformed this traditionally macho and totally Christian establishment where men dance about in tights and anthropomorphic animals practice magic into an anti-family values terror-pit, like unto "Sodom and Gomorrah."*

Juan Baptista dos Santos was known as the man with three legs. He also had two working genitals. At the same time, there was a lady named Blanche Dumas who had three legs and two working genitalia. This is by far one of the most weirdest love stories I ever read.

Two years after the Batman series ended, he was offered the actual role of James Bond for the movie Diamonds Are Forever but he turned it down because he thought James Bond should always be played by somebody British. 



On a TV special on the TV show "Batman," they showed that Nextle Quik ad, and Adam West was really good in it. Thus, one can see why he was then offered the title role in "Batman" the TV series.

As for James Bond should always be played by somebody British, there goes American actor Ed Nelson, who  was the first actor to assay the role on film, in 1954, on an episode of the TV series "Climax," or some eight years before Sean Connery played the part on the big screen. The villain opposite Ed Nelson was Peter Lorre in the part of Le Chiffre.
