When mice live in the wild, they typically only live for about six months due to the fact that they have so many predators. However, in a controlled environment like being kept as a pet, they can live up to two years.
During World War II in Australia, a dog with incredibly acute hearing was able to warn Air Force personnel of incoming Japanese planes 20 minutes before they arrived—even before they showed up on radar. The dog, a former stray named Gunner, was able to differentiate the sounds of allied and enemy aircraft.
Toy Story 2 Was Almost Deleted
Oops! We bet whoever did this was sweating after they made that particular error…
Apparently somebody entered a rogue command in the animation “master machine” used to create Toy Story 2, and it ended up deleting 90% of the film.
Whoops! That’s a bad day at work for one Pixar employee. Mental Floss described the situation: “A plan was quickly hatched to restore the data from a regular backup, which meant that only half a day of work would have been lost. But the backup system had failed.
Pixar, incredibly, did not have a copy of the Toy Story 2 files on its servers.” Yikes! So what happened next?
Thankfully all was not lost for the animated movie and in the end the production company managed to locate a spare copy of the film footage thanks to one organised staff member. Luckily for everyone involved in the film, one of the technical director’s had a spare copy that she had been working on from home and nearly all of the lost data was restored.
It just goes to show guys – always keep a back up file in reserve!
"Hasta la vista, baby."
