Weird and curious tidbits that found their way into my head when I wasn't even looking
"A celebrity is a person who works hard all his life to become well known, then wears dark glasses to avoid being recognized"

"It's only a coincidence that "nasa" (or N.A.S.A, if you will) in Hebrew means "to go up."

"Pity the Incas of Peru who didn't have movies........ They had popcorn."

If you want to discipline youngsters the way the Iroquois did theirs, don't spank them, just dunk them in water.

Wanna know where the word 'Carnival' came from? Sure, you do !......Before people gave up meat for Lent, they celebrated with a "carnival." That word stems from "carne vale" meaning "goodbye, meat."

Did you know that you cannot hum while holding your nose? Go ahead, try it.

Or, that Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon.........shhhh, his name 'Neil A' spelled backwards is A-L-I-E-N
