Marcus Aurelius

Fun Fact

J.K. Rowling chose the unusual name ‘Hermione’ so young girls wouldn’t be teased for being nerdy.

The name Hermione came from Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale.”


Rowling says when she chose the name, she “didn’t want a lot of fairly hard-working little girls to be teased if ever the book was published.”


History Fact

Johnny Appleseed Was Real

The folkloric hero was a real person. His real name was John Chapman and his hometown was Leominster, Massachusetts. He also has a street named after him, though the city planners decided it would be more poetic to use his mythical name: Johnny Appleseed Lane.


Movie/TV Trivia

An original ending for the classic serial killer film Seven saw Detective Somerset (Morgan Freeman) shooting John Doe (Kevin Spacey). This was followed with the cringeworthy kiss off line, “I’m retiring”. In a move that may well re-establish your faith in a God the scene was storyboarded but never filmed.

"To me, you are perfect."
