History Fact

Micro Power

Most people can agree that singing birthday cards are kind of annoying. But tell that to Winston Churchill: the cards, which contain a chip that plays the song, hold more computing power than all the Allied forces had at their disposal in 1945. And your cell phone? Well, it’s got more power than NASA had in 1969—you know, that year they sent humans to the moon. But you keep on playing Candy Crush, don’t let me interrupt you.

Best Blue-Cheese Dishes in the U.S.

Our advice for getting your blue-cheese kick? Try it on a burger, a trend that’s been sweeping the country. (Trust us: It’s awesome.)

Smashburger, which touts more than 300 outposts across 36 states, offers the cheese as a topping on its build-your-own Angus-beef burgers, while Bobby Flay’s Bobby’s Burger Palace, with locations in nine states, makes a wildly popular bacon-blue cheese burger (pictured here).

Blue cheese is also an essential ingredient in the dipping sauce that typically accompanies an American classic: Buffalo wings. This favorite can be found throughout the country, but tastes particularly good where it was first introduced to the masses, at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York.

You can also ditch the accompaniments and try the best blue cheese of your life all on its own at a tiny shop in Oregon. This year, an American blue cheese made by Rogue Creamery was named the best cheese on Earth. Said one judge of the cheese that beat out more than 3,000 other contenders from around the world: “It just tasted so darn good.” You can purchase it from the cheese shop at the creamery, located not far from the California-Oregon border.

Schindler's List

During production, the atmosphere was so grim and depressing that Steven Spielberg asked his friend Robin Williams if he could tell some jokes and do comedy sketches while Spielberg would watch episodes of Seinfeld (1989). Some of Williams' sketches, while played through the speaker phone to the cast and crew, ended up being part of dialogue material for his character in Aladdin (1992), the Genie.
