“If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.”


Morris West


Joke

Why did the math book look so sad? Because of all of its problems!


Fun Fact

Warner Bros cancelled “Home Alone” because they didn’t want to spend $14 million on it. 21st Century Fox continued the production, and the film grossed $476 million worldwide.


Reading Fact

Vladimir Nabokov would compose all works on index cards which he kept in slim boxes.


This method enabled him to easily re-arrange the plot of his books any time he wanted – he would shuffle these cards daily, what allowed him to see the story unfold in different ways.


He also stored some of the cards underneath his pillow, so that when an idea popped into his head at night, he could quickly write it down. 


History Fact

In the Ancient Olympics, athletes performed naked.

 

The athletes did this to imitate the Gods, but also to help them easily clear toxins from their skin through sweating after each attempt at a sport.


In fact, the word “gymnastics” comes from the Ancient Greek words “gumnasía” (“athletic training, exercise”) and “gumnós” (“naked”).


This translates as “to train naked”.


Movie/TV Trivia

Melissa McCarthy styled her Bridesmaids character after Guy Fieri.


Movie/TV Quote

"Honey? Where's my super suit?"


The Incredibles (2004)


It's unlikely that Brad Bird and his cohorts knew that this was the one scene from The Incredibles that would go down in history as one of the best, funniest movie scenes of all time. It's mostly thanks to Samuel L. Jackson, who plays icy superhero Frozone, and Pixar employee Kimberly Adair Clark as his wife, who, in the movies, always appears as a voice. The two bicker about Frozone's missing suit, his wife telling him that, no, he shouldn't go off and save the city from a giant rampaging robot because they have a date planned. The scene has inspired many covers and cursed remixes, but perhaps the best thing it gave us was an instant knee-jerk response any time someone in the room says "HONEYYYYY?" All together now: WHERE. IS. MY. SUPER. SUIT.
