Whether you're at Gillette Stadium or Fenway Park, you'll never hear just half of the "Star Spangled Banner." Singing or playing only part of the national anthem or remixing it as dance music is punishable by a fine of not more than $100.

In the United States, Swiss cheese is typically an imitation of Switzerland’s Emmental, a medium-hard cheese known for its signature holes (or “eyes”).
This yellow, medium-hard cheese is slightly sweet and nutty in flavor, and because of its mild flavor and versatile texture, is often served alongside other cheeses. But it also has plenty of admirers all on its own.
Fun fact: By manipulating acidity, temperature and curing time, cheesemakers can control the size of Swiss cheese holes. The larger the holes, the more pronounced the flavor.
Swiss is also one of the healthier cheeses you’ll find. So eat up!

This movie star was, in fact, Natalie Portman, who was enrolled at Harvard from 1999 to 2003 and helped screenwriter Aaron Sorkin by providing him insider information about goings-on at Harvard at the time Facebook first appeared there.
"Listen to me, mister. You're my knight in shining armor. Don't you forget it. You're going to get back on that horse, and I'm going to be right behind you, holding on tight, and away we're gonna go, go, go!"
