Fun Fact

All giant pandas in zoos around the world are on loan from China.


The panda at your local zoo may look like it's at home in its cozy sanctuary. But unless you live in China, the pandas that you're seeing are just visiting. That's because every one of the gentle giants in zoos around the world are on loan from China. Yes, they're technically the property of the government of China, according to Vox.


Reading Fact

Three best-selling books in the world


The books are the Holy Bible (6 billion copies), Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung (900 million), and the Harry Potter series (500 million copies sold). We bet you didn’t expect Mao Tse-Tung to make the list. We certainly didn’t. Gotta wonder what’s the story there.


History Fact

One expert suggests that as many as 600,000 people who were designated “witches” perished during the medieval period.


Movie/TV Trivia

Despite pulling in over $240m My Big Fat Greek Wedding never once topped the US box office chart.


Movie/TV Quote

"Put some Windex on it."


My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002)


The running gag of the theater-performance-turned-hit-rom-com of 2002, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, was a very Greek father who swore that a spritz of Windex could cure anything. On the day of her wedding, Toula (Nia Vardalos, who also wrote the film) wakes up with a zit (or mosquito bite, who's to say?) and her father recommends Windex. This magical thinking rubs off on her new husband Ian (John Corbett), who put some Windex on his zit on their wedding morning, making it disappear. It became such a bit for all the people who had seen the movie too: There were several pieces written, citing dermatologists, that Windex is not, in fact, a wonder drug.
