History Fact

George Washington Opened a Whiskey Distillery After His Presidency

Apparently, being the first president of the United States wasn't enough for George Washington in his lifetime. After his term, Washington opened a whiskey distillery. By 1799, Washington's distillery was the largest in the country, producing 11,000 gallons of un-aged whiskey. After the president's death, the business was no more, however.

Movie/TV Trivia

The Passion Of The Christ

Jim Caviezel admitted he was struck by lightning while filming the Sermon on the Mount and during the crucifixion.

Movie/TV Quote

"These are not spirit fingers. These are spirit fingers. And these are gold."

Bring It On (2000)

It's quite honestly insane that UCB staple Ian Roberts was Sparky, the pill-popping choreographer putting high school cheerleaders through boot camp to "transform [their] robotic routines into poetry written with the human body." The horrible goatee, the shirt with one too many buttons open, his scathing burns of everyone's physical flaws, and his crucial defining trait: spirit fingers, the "bad" ones practically indistinguishable from the "good" ones. Clearly just a derivation of jazz hands, "spirit fingers" was one of the defining schticks of Bring It On, directed by Peyton Reed (his first film -- he would later go on to make Ant-Man), and a damn good one at that.
