“When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life or the life of another.”


Helen Keller

Because it needed some tweatment!


Fun Fact

Creedence Clearwater Revival has the most No. 2 Billboard hits—without ever hitting No. 1.

John Fogerty's swamp rock band has the odd distinction of having seen more of its singles hit No. 2 on the charts, without ever hitting No. 1, than any other musical act. Between March 1969 and Oct. 1970, the band scored five No. 2 singles on the Billboard Top 100—"Proud Mary," "Bad Moon Rising," "Green River," "Travelin' Band," and "Lookin' Out My Back Door"—but never saw one of its songs get to the top spot. No other act has topped this dubious honor since.


History Fact

Pre-Internet

In the 1980s (a decade before the World Wide Web was created) 25 million people in France went online to bank, check the weather, chat, make reservations, socialize, check stock prices, and even access pornography. They did this not on a personal computer, but on a Minitel terminal, an earlier form of online service.


Movie/TV Trivia

Man Of Steel

Henry Cavill refused to take steroids to muscle up for the role. He also refused any digital touch-ups or enhancement to his body in his shirtless scenes. He said it would have been dishonest of him to use trickery while playing Superman, and he wanted to push his body to the limits, to develop his physique into one that was worthy of the character.


Movie/TV Quote

"Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't."


Legally Blonde (2001)

Don't Cut the Cactus


At least in Arizona, because it is illegal to do so. Offenders can be sentenced to 25-year long prison time. Ain't no poking fun at this one.
