Today is ANZAC Day, a day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, which memorializes all those who died in the service of those two countries.

To those everywhere who fell to defend those liberties enshrined in western civilization: thank you.

During the Cold War the Soviet Union, not Cuba, was geographically the closest Communist nation to the United States.

The bow and arrow did not seem to arrive in North America until about 500 AD. Among stone artifacts, true arrowheads are almost always under one inch in length. Anything larger was used on a spear, lance, or dart.

The size is purely a practical consideration:  in order for an arrow to function as an arrow, the point needs to be under 4 grams (0.14 ounces).

Modern ATMs make almost no sounds by themselves. The clicks and whirrs of machinery that you hear are usually sound effects that are added to give the user confidence that it is working.

Just three months after his death, Charlie Chaplin’s body was stolen on Christmas day in 1977, by two mechanics. They thought they could get money from his family in exchange for his body. However, the two grave robbers were captured and eleven weeks later and Chaplin’s body was recovered. To stop this from happening again, Chaplin was buried under 6 feet of concrete the second time around.

They do the same thing with the gear shift on motorcycles nowadays.
And the "Close Door" button on elevators doesn't do anything.

Daniel Boone was never lost in the woods, though he did confess that at times he got turned around in there for a few days.

In the 1980s a man with severe OCD shot himself in the head in an attempt to commit suicide. Instead of killing him, the bullet destroyed the part of his brain that was responsible for his OCD, and he went on to become a straight-A college student five years later.

Aerosmith's "Walk This Way"¯ was inspired by Mel Brook's movie Young Frankenstein, specifically, the scenes where Igor (pronounced Eye-Gore) tells the doctor to ... "walk this way,".

Yesterday was the 68th anniversary of Adolf Hitler's death in the Reich Chancellery bunker in Berlin.


You know, you do have to say this for Hitler: at least he killed Hitler!

    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.
