Grover Cleveland is the only president to serve two non consecutive terms.


William Henry Harrison and Benjamin Harrison remain the only grandfather grandson presidents.

Here are a few:

-Abraham Lincoln faces right on the penny while the other U.S presidents on their coins face left.

-The idea for the microwave came from a man whose chocolate melted as he passed a radiation tube.

-Nobody actually sings "Batman!" in the Batman (1960's) theme. What is thought of as cries are actually horns.

Chris Butler's The Devil Glitch is currently the longest pop song ever recorded.
It is 69 minutes long and came out in 1996.

the voice on the radio in "ADAM-12" was a real Los Angeles police announcer.

The train on "PETTICOAT JUNCTION" only had 1 set of driver wheels (the big wheels). They would have to move them to whatever side faced the camera.
