“Laugh it off, laugh it off; it’s all part of life’s rich pageant.”

What facial feature almost resulted in Charles Darwin’s being denied the post of naturalist aboard the HMS Beagle on its historic 1831 voyage?

The shape of his nose. In his autobiography, Darwin reported that Captain Robert FitzRoy “doubted whether anyone with my nose could possess sufficient energy and determination for the voyage.”

TV predicts the future!

ON TV: Set in the dystopian future world of 2004, Max Headroom, a 1985 British TV movie about totalitarian networks, insidious subliminal advertising, and computer-generated talking heads became an American series on ABC in 1987. The movie predicted that TV would consist of hundreds of niche-based “micro-channels” (including one that showed only court trials) and ratings could be measured on a second-by-second basis.

IN REAL LIFE: It seemed far out at the time, but viewers today have hundreds of available channels, including Court TV (now TruTV). And while Nielsen can’t yet measure ratings down to the second, it can and does track them minute by minute.

Trivia

What is used to inflate the tires of cars competing in NASCAR races?


Pure nitrogen. It’s used instead of compressed air because it maintains tire pressure longer, is more fuel efficient, resists heat buildup in hot weather, and reduces oxidation, which can damage a tire from the inside.

CATCHPHRASES

“Just the facts, ma’am.”

Sergeant Joe Friday’s deadpan delivery on Dragnet made this statement famous … sort of. Turns out he never actually said it. Friday’s line was “All we want are the facts, ma’am.” So how’d the line become famous? Satirist Stan Freberg spoofed the popular show on a 1953 record called “St. George and the Dragonet,” which featured the line: “I just want to get the facts, ma’am.” The record sold more than two million copies, and Freberg’s line—not Webb’s—became synonymous with the show.


Only actors to win an Emmy and Oscar in the same year: Helen Hunt (1998) and George C. Scott (1971).

Friday Funny

Friday, February 22, 2013

A door-to-door salesman knocked on the front door of a house and heard a faint, “Come in.” The door was open, so he walked hesitantly into the living room and said, “Is anyone home?”
“Come in,” said a strange voice in the other room.
The salesman reluctantly followed the voice into the other room and saw a parrot in a cage. Relieved, the salesman said, “For heaven’s sake, is ‘Come in’ all you know how to say?”
Just then, three Rottweilers slunk into the room. The parrot let out a shrill laugh and said, “Sic ’im!”

House of Michael Jacksons
Around 2004 (five years before Michael Jackson died), TV producers came up with a takeoff on the popular show The Real World. Like The Real World, it would have featured a bunch of strangers living in a house together. The twist: All the housemates would be Michael Jackson impersonators, and they’d be required to stay in costume, wear makeup, and behave like Jackson for the duration of the show, tentatively titled House of Michael Jacksons.
