Today's Dippit!

Quote “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced."


Soren Kierkegaard


Joke

German sausage jokes are just the wurst


Fun Fact

Before the invention of colour TV, 75% of people said they dreamed in black and white. Today, only 12% do.


History Fact

Wake Up Call

Before modern technology made their profession all but obsolete, people would hire “knocker-ups” to wake them for work; these knocker-ups would generally tap a long stick at their clients’ windows. This still sounds better than being woken up by the default Apple alarm ring tone, to be honest.


Movie/TV Trivia

Oscar Winners Used to Be Announced Before the Ceremony

During the early years of the Academy Awards, the organization provided newspapers with the names in advance, with the agreement that they would not publish the names until 11 p.m. Of course, then someone had to ruin it for everyone, when The Los Angeles Times broke this rule during the heated 1940 competition, announcing that Gone With the Wind had won before the statue had been handed out. It led to a rule change that stands today.


Movie/TV Quote

"Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!"

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, 1948

The misquote of the line — "We don’t need no stinking badges!" — started with Micky Dolenz in a 1967 episode of The Monkees TV series, but Mel Brooks got it wrong, too, in 1974's Blazing Saddles.
