Fun Fact

Some fungi create zombies, then control their minds

The tropical fungus Ophiocordyceps infects ants’ central nervous systems. By the time the fungi been in the insect bodies for nine days, they have complete control over the host’s movements. They force the ants to climb trees, then convulse and fall into the cool, moist soil below, where fungi thrive. Once there, the fungus waits until exactly solar noon to force the ant to bite a leaf and kill it. Don’t miss these 12 animal “facts” that are actually false.


History Fact

During World War II, Americans called hamburgers “liberty steaks”.

This was due to the fact that “hamburger” sounded a little bit too German!


Also, during World War I, sauerkraut was re-dubbed “liberty cabbage”.


Movie/TV Trivia

O.J. Simpson was nearly cast as the Terminator


We don’t think the franchise would have been nearly as popular if this casting had actually occurred…

O.J. Simpson is better known today for being found not-guilty of the double murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her lover Ron Goldman.

During the trial, Simpson’s long history domestic abuse, stalking and violence came to the public’s attention but in a shocking twist, the jury still found him innocent. Before the murders, Simpson was a popular football popular and actor – so popular, in fact that James Cameron considered casting him in Terminator.

Funnily enough, Cameron decided against the choice because he thought that Simpson was “too pleasant” to portray such a dark character! Simpson was known for being an extremely charming man on the surface and the director just didn’t think that he would be able to pull off the Terminator role. Cameron later explained: “This was when everybody loved him, and ironically that was part of the problem—he was this likable, goofy, kind of innocent guy.

“Plus, frankly, I wasn’t interested in an African-American man chasing around a white girl with a knife.”
