"Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."

Anais Nin


My friend says to me, "What rhymes with orange?" And I told him, "No it doesn't!"

Fun Fact

There are only two countries with names that begin with "The."

You might find yourself saying "the" before various countries and place names when referring to them thanks to grammar and common pronunciation, which is why we say the United States or the Maldives. However, only The Gambia and The Bahamas formally include "the" in their nation's names.

History Fact

There were “dance marathons” during the Great Depression.

It wasn’t exactly a means of keeping the American spirit up through the darkest financial crisis in its history, either.

These human endurance contests served as a way of giving broke married couples a roof over their head and food to eat for a few days.

The dance partners would take turns sleeping while the other propped them up and continued dancing with them.

Movie/TV Trivia

Leonardo DiCaprio once wiped his own blood on Kerry Washington

Leonardo DiCaprio is well-known for his method acting, but he took things one step too far on the set of Django Unchained!

During filming for the infamous dinner scene, the actor accidentally cut his hand open. He was on the sixth take of his racist rant when Leo smashed his hand against the table and hit a glass – ouch! But the actor didn’t flinch and the cameras kept rolling as DiCaprio finished the scene by wiping his own blood all over Kerry Washington’s face.

Yuck! Fortunately his co-stars appreciated the epic ad-libbing and once filming stopped, everybody on set burst into applause. “My hand started really pouring blood all over the table,” said DiCaprio. “Maybe they thought it was done with special effects. I wanted to keep going.

It was more interesting to watch Quentin’s and Jamie’s reaction off-camera than to look at my hand.” He then added that he was glad the director kept in the scene!
