Quote

“The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.”


Confucius


Joke

Let me tell you about my grandfather. He was a good man, a brave man. He had the heart of a lion, and a lifetime ban from the zoo


Fun Fact

The world record for the longest human chain (holding hands) is 652.4 miles and it consisted of 5 million people in Bangladesh as part of a campaign.


Reading Fact

No wonder, U.S. President John F. Kennedy encouraged his staff to take lessons in fast reading.


History Fact

Thomas Edison didn’t invent most of the stuff he patented.

 

It’s fair to say that Edison was one of the world’s most notorious intellectual property thieves.

Of the 1,093 things he smashed a patent on, he stole near enough most of them off real geniuses like Nikola Tesla, Wilhelm Rontgen and Joseph Swan – the latter of whom originally invented the lightbulb!


Movie/TV Trivia

The original cut of The Wolf of Wallstreet had over four hours worth of content so had to be cut further.


Movie/TV Quote

"She doesn't even go here!"


Mean Girls (2004)


Maybe you're whining, thinking that "Stop trying to make fetch happen" is the more iconic Mean Girls quote, but listen: if you "have a lot of feelings," we have no time for you. Damian Leigh (Daniel Franzese) is the only one who will call out the random "Crying Girl" during the assembly in Mean Girls, when all the girls are tasked with writing apology notes to one another after Regina George's "Burn Book" goes public. It is, of course, extra funny that the entire time his towering frame is dressed in a giant light blue hoodie and dark sunglasses, as if those will disguise him in an all-girls assembly. Hey, he and Janis go everywhere together, where else was he supposed to be? Part of what makes this quote so funny is his nubby silhouette rising from the crowd of girls (perfect for screencapping and pasting on T-shirts and mugs and office desktop computers), then subtly covering his face with a graceful hand.
