  • Ever wonder how they got Godzilla's roar in the original Godzilla? The sound department took a course, resin-coated glove and ran it up and down the strings of a double bass and then reverberated the sound. Unique!
    "Smells Like Teen Spirit" was written by Kurt Cobain after hearing a friend say, "Ugh, it smells like teen spirit in here!" He thought she was being poetic about teen angst and wrote an entire rock song around it. Actually, she was talking about the body spray called "Teen Spirit." He wrote a song about deodorant!
    Fresh cranberries can bounce like a rubber ball. I thought I wasn't supposed to play with my food, but how can I resist?
    St. P. was not Catholic, did not drive out the snakes, had nothing to do with a shamrock, did not create the Celtic cross, and he was neither British nor Irish. Happy St. P. Myth Debunking Day!

    Green is actually the color of the Catholic Church. Before green came around, Blue was the color associated with this Saint and Ireland. I don't get why Blue was the color of the Emerald Isle, but there you have it.

    Today is the Ides of March, the day Julius Cesar was killed by his best friends and his adopted son, the people he trusted fully, who thought they were doing the right thing only to mess things up even worse.
    After their third album, Caress of Steel, was a massive failure, the band Rush was told by their record company to return to the simpler style of their first album, Or else. They decided to risk going even more extreme and released what they thought would be their final album, 2112, which consists mostly of a 21-minute long progressive rock epic.

    40 years later, 2112 is multi-platinum and considered one of the greatest and most influential albums ever created. Don't be afraid to risk big on your dreams. Maybe they will fail, or maybe they will turn out greater than even you could have ever imagined. You won't know until you try.
    After a good work out, it can take up to five hours for the body to return to its normal temperature. I guess that's one way to stay warm during the winter.
    Technically, a child has more tastebuds than an adult. Why?? Those extra tastebuds are wasted on ungrateful children! They are over there eating chicken nuggets while I'm eating beef wellington. I think I'd appreciate the tastebuds more, but... maybe that's why chicken nuggets tasted so awesome when I was a kid.
    Attila the Hun, arguably the greatest warrior to have ever existed, who only ever lost one single battle in his entire career... died by drowning from a nosebleed after passing out drunk on his wedding night. Not exactly the end you'd expect from a great warrior, but it is proper Rock and Roll!
    Apparently, when you blush, the lining of your stomach also turns red. I don't want to know who figured that out and how.
    Random fact of the day: It is illegal to climb trees in Oshawa, a town in Ontario, Canada. I wonder how many squirrels they have incarcerated for that?
