Today's Dippit!


“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Michael Jordan

Fun Fact

A duel between three people is actually called a truel.

Reading Fact

The first generation Kindle, released on 19 November 2007, was sold out in only 5 1/2 hours.

The first-ever Kindle cost $399, and after it was sold out it remained out of stock for five months until late April 2008. With its 250 MB of internal storage, it could hold approximately two hundred non-illustrated titles at a time. It also had a speaker and a headphone jack for listening to audio files. 

History Fact

A Distinguished History

With all the history we have behind us, it can be hard to keep track of everything. Which is why is seems super disorienting to think that the University of Oxford, which opened its doors to students in 1096, is actually older than the Aztec empire, which began in 1427, by hundreds of years. Super disorienting, but super true. 

Movie/TV Trivia

In Star Trek, the sound of the doors opening is actually the sound of a toilet flushing on a Russian train.

Movie/TV Quote

"I don't like sand. It's all coarse, and rough, and irritating. And it gets everywhere."

Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

Hayden Christensen became an instant icon for all of his weird lines in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and its sequel Revenge of the Sith -- unfortunately for him, not because any of those lines were any good. The characteristically dopey delivery of his diatribe against sand to his lover Padmé Amidala is perhaps the finest bit of unintentionally comedic acting in the whole Star Wars saga. Anakin grew up as a slave on a desert planet, so yeah, naturally, the texture of sand would probably bring back those memories. But, geez, man, can't you think of a less creepy way to say it?
