Quote

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”


Dr. Seuss


Joke

A guy walks into a pharmacy: “I have extreme headaches, my belly cramps, I feel like I’m about to vomit and my back hurts like something tears the muscles apart. Do you have something?”


Fun Fact

The dot over the lower case "i" or "j" is known as a "tittle."

That tiny dot above lower case "I" and "j" letters has an actual name: tittle. It is thought that the phrase "to a T" is actually derived from the phrase "to a tittle"—a phrase that was used in the same sense dating back to the early 17th century. (The first recording of the phrase is in the 1607 play Woman Hater by Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher, in which the line reads, "I'll quote him to a tittle.")


History Fact

Old as Ice


Iceland’s Parliament is the oldest in the world, and has been in existence since 930. You do the math, it’s very old.


Movie/TV Trivia

Interview With The Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles

All the actors playing vampires were required to hang upside down for up to thirty minutes at a time during the make-up application. This would force all the blood in their bodies to rush to their heads, causing the blood vessels in their faces to bulge out. The make up artists would then trace over the swollen veins creating the eerie translucent-skinned vampire look. Unfortunately for the actors, they would have to repeat the process several times over, as the blood would quickly drain from their heads. This, in part, accounts for the lengthy make-up process.

"I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!"
