Charles Manson, who grew up in my hometown, once vowed he could fly, and to demonstrate leaped off the balcony of a third-floor bar, only to land face-down on the concrete parking lot. Over the years others at the bar have tried to duplicate his demonstration, and in time the act has become known locally as "the Manson Maneuver."

An onion has twelve times as much DNA as a human being. Amoeba dubia, a single-celled organism, has approximately two-hundred times the DNA of a human.

Anthony Perkins was super gay before he married Berinthia Berenson. He later died of AIDs, and his wife was killed on American Airlines Flight 11 during the September 11 attacks in 2001.

So? That is old news and so what if he was gay? He didn't harm anyone by being gay. He was a good actor and adored his two sons. He was also a trailblazer for the LGBT community and he was in the first film I saw as a child.

Again, old news: his wife died on my birthday as it happens.

First of all don't even come at like that again, I don't need to explain myself to you. But if it sets your mind at ease, I don't have a problem with homosexuals and I think he was good actor, too.

Now to your other point: I don't particular care if it's old news, as almost everything in this thread is 'old news'. It's MY random fact of the day, and if it somehow hurts your little feelings then idk what to tell you. I mean I could tell you to just deal with it, but that would make me seem like an a***ole and that's not really what my intent, is.

In Anglo-Saxon England, a method of execution reserved for treason, the murder of a parent, or blasphemy, was to take a take a large sack and place a condemned person in it, then drop a rooster, a cat, and an adder into the sack and sew it shut. The sack and its contents were then whipped thirty-three lashes and the entire sack was thrown into a river.

Not a good way to check out.

That was also the punishment for a patricide, or someone who killed their father, in Ancient Rome. Minus the whipping.

And as for my Fact of the Day, . . .

There are two places cheaper than Shades of Green on property. The Best Friends Resort, which charges $69.00 a night and for that price you get morning and night jogging, a flatscreen TV, your own playgroup, turndown service, a gift left on your pillow, but don't eat the chocolates, a webcam, bedtime storytime, and if you stay three nights or longer, they then give you a free bath. Of course, this is only for your pets.

And then there is the campground. If not the best campground in the U.S., then one of the best. Where you can camp in a tent for only $48.00 per night, or the cheapest on-site place to stay.

Next time: Where can I get a drink around here?

Cetaceans have a number of emotional centers in their brains that humans do not, strongly suggesting they are capable of a unique array of emotions which humans probably cannot experience or even comprehend.

Tenor saxophonist Stan Getz ("The Girl from Impanema") was once arrested for attempting to hold up a drugstore. His call was traced when he telephoned to apologize to the pharmacist for the failed robbery.

75 places to drink.

Excluding the champagne, which can run you $ 290.00 for a regular-size bottle of Cuvee Dom Perignon Brut, the most expensive drink is a 2 oz. pour of Johnnie Walker Blue Scotch Whiskey which runs $37.00 for that 2 oz. pour.

It is still illegal.
But, they still make it.
They still sell it.
Moonshine.
Toby and Sons Moonshine.
They'll mix you up a moonshine cocktail at one of the resorts.

But, wouldn't you all rather have a beer.

You wouldn't think it, but this place has become one of the most influential places in the U.S. at determining what the rest of the U.S. drinks. It also has more sommeliers in this one place, then anyother place in the U.S.

And you thought they didn't have a sense of humor.

Forty-thirst Street -- Frosty the Joe Man Coffee Shack -- Let's Go Slurpin' -- Mardi Grogs Bar -- Muddy Rivers Bar -- Sand Bar -- Team Spirits Bar . . .

. . . are some of the places you can get something to drink.

Next time: Where can I get a bite to eat?

    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:
