Mice and rats are vocalizing more than we humans realize, most of it occurs outside the human range of hearing.

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.

I'll rule the world
I can be loyal to the spirit of the rules, but not usually to the letter.

Ironic given that I often wish to be a leader.

The Bobo Doll Experiment was a psychological experiment conducted in the 1960’s where children were shown a video of an adult hitting an inflatable clown. When the children were put in the same room with the clown, they began to assault it. The experiment was created in order to debunk the claim that violence in the media was acceptable for children to relax their anger.

Kodak invented a prototype for a digital camera as early as 1975. However, the prototype was not developed any further, as camera film generated so much revenue for the company that they were unwilling to jeopardize it.

In 1993, Marvel published "The Life of Jesus Christ: The Christmas Story" (in February!) Unsurprisingly it flopped badly and never went past the pilot issue, though a companion called "The Easter Story" was released later that spring.

In 1992, an elderly woman named Stella Liebeck was leaving a McDonald’s with coffee between her legs until the car braked hard, exploding the cup and spilling the coffee on to her groinal area. She had to be sent to the hospital and treated for 3rd degree burns and had to require skin graft surgery. Soon after, she sued the restaurant for $20,000 in damages, but McDonald’s only offered $800. Two years later, the lawsuit went to District Court where Liebeck won the case and received almost $3 million dollars in compensation. Now, the court case is seen as controversial and an example of "frivolous litigation".

The 1992 SNK fighting game Art of Fighting features an entirely male cast… with one exception.

One of the characters in the roster is a muay thai fighter named King. Initially, he appears to be male like the rest of the characters you fight. However, if you manage to defeat King using a special move, the top of his shirt will be torn apart, revealing a bra underneath and "him" to actually be a woman.

Since then, King has continued to make appearances in SNK’s The King of Fighters games, and in some of them, her shirt can still be destroyed by beating her with a special move despite her true gender already being known at this point.

The Great Molasses Flood was a deadly, non-water flood that occurred on January 15th, 1919 in Boston, Massachussetts when a tankard containing 2,300,000 gallons of molasses tipped over and flooded the city with the brown, sticky substance. As a result, 21 people were killed and 150 were injured as it took weeks to clean up the mess and Boston Harbor was stained brown for months. It is said that on hot summer days, the streets still smell of molasses.
