Not long after after finishing Star Trek, William Shatner was so broke he spent some time living in a van. (Unclear if said van was "down by the river...")

The German WW2 rifle, the SturmGewehr 44, was the first ever assault weapon in the world. It was the inspiration for the AK-47 and had 3 selective rates of fire, and was originally slated to come into service in 1942.

Fact: the Harley Davidson biker chick is not necessarily a present day phenomena.

Not when Iron Age women liked to wear wide leather belts studded with brass studs, especially when throwing back a cold brewski in the Iron Age equivalent of the biker bar.

And when driving the newest conveyance. The Harley Davidson chariot. 3hp.

Next time: He was so fat, that when he sat around the cave, he sat around the cave.

Albert Einstein and his first wife, Meric, had a child together a year before they married. Einstein refused to look at this baby, a daughter named Liserl, and he stipulated that a condition of him marrying Meric was that the baby immediately be given away. The man could be a cold-hearted pashkudenyak when he wanted to be.

Fact: the Neolithic Natufians, one of the first people to stop wandering and settle down, to maintain the community peace and honor their dead, use to hold communal feasts in the caves, where their dead were buried.

Here they dined on that Neolithic delicacy, wild auroch or wild ox.

They also ate what ever could be brought to the feast, including . . .

acorns -- almonds -- fish -- legumes -- mountain gazelle -- turtle -- venison -- wild boar -- wild ibex -- and duck.

Sounds like today's potluck suppers.

And how many Natufians attended these feasts. The most wild auroch eaten at one of these feasts was found to be 671 pounds. Knowing how much meat one normal person can eat, you are looking at--probably--between 200 and 300 people.

Next time: Is that a watermelon in your pants, or are you just glad to see me?

The near-universal love of sweets possessed by humans is believed to be connected to the fact that the first milk mammals receive in life (the very first meal) has a high concentration of sugar in it which gives an infant a huge carbo boost. Therefore from the first moment on it is imprinted onto the brains of mammals that sweet is good.

Fact: the largest male genitalia in the animal kingdom, in relation to body weight, belongs to the tuberous bushcricket, where it makes up 14% of the animal's weight, or in a 200 pound man, that'd be 28 pounds, or the size of a good size watermelon.

Here are some more facts about the male genitalia from the animal kingdom.

Industrial pollution is causing the male genitalia of the polar bear to shrink in size.

The genitalia of the male bat is in direct relation to its brain size. The larger the brain, the smaller the genitalia. The smaller the brain, the larger the genitalia.

There is a type of male waterbug that creatres a type of music by rubbing its genitalia against its stomach. Sounds like some of the men I know.

Next time: They just couldn't cut the mustard.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
