When Tomorrowland first opened in Disneyland, it was supposed to represent the world in 1984

The first children allowed inside Disneyland were the Mouseketeers.

Walt Disney's middle name was Elias.

The first season of Mr.Ed was syndicated because the three networks passed on it. It became such a hit CBS picked it up for the second and the remaining seasons.



The Edge of Night is the first soap opera to switch networks. The show started on CBS in 1956, and moved to ABC in 1975. The show was cancelled in 1984.

The plastic things on the end of shoelaces are called aglets.

Search For Tomorrow also ran on two networks. It ran on CBS from 1951 to
1982 and then on NBC from 1982 to 1986. It was cancelled in December
1986.

I'm sure I've eaten more than that already.

The Arabs invented caramel, which served as a depilatory (hair removal) for women in a harem.

People were using garlic to repel vampires long before Bram Stoker’s Dracula was published. Folklorists suggest it is because vampires have a heightened sense of smell and the garlic’s strong smell was overpowering. Garlic is proven to be effective against two other bloodsuckers: mosquitoes and ticks.

A row of corn always has an even number.

An American will typically eat the equivalent of 28 pigs in his or her lifetime.

The Fresh Kill Landfill in New York and the Great Wall of China are the only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

It is more likely that Americans will recycle than vote.

In the U.S. alone, 18 billion diapers are thrown out a year.

Plastic bags are easier to recycle and require less energy to produce than paper bags.

Recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for three hours.

In 1971, Oregon became the first state to pass a bottle bill designed to increase recycling and decrease litter by giving consumers a financial incentive to recycle. Under the bottle bill law, consumers can receive money for recycling soft drink and beer containers rather than throwing them out.

Over 70% of e-waste ends up in China, where much of it is recycled in family-run workshops. Their methods of recycling are often rudimentary and can create serious environmental contaminants and health risks. (CSI:NY just did an episode about that)

Cigarette butts and filters take 12 years to biodegrade. An aluminum can takes between 200 to 500 years to biodegrade. Plastic diapers and sanitary pads take between 500-800 years. Styrofoam takes more than 5,000 years. And it would take a glass bottle 1 million years to biodegrade.

Humans smell “in stereo.” Scent signals from each nostril travel to different regions in the brain. This may help a person determine the direction the odor is coming from.

Humans produce about 10,000 gallons of saliva in a lifetime. Saliva is required for taste—until food is dissolved by saliva, we cannot taste it.

Hearing is one of the less acute senses in humans, compared to the many other animals which can detect sound at much higher and lower frequency than humans can.

Most likely due to poor nutrition as children, many Greeks and Romans were shorter than people today. Men from Pompeii, for example, averaged 5 ft. 5-½ in. and women averaged 5 ft. 2 in.

Vitamin D is unusual because it is the only vitamin that can be synthesized in the body. Sunlight is the main source of Vitamin D, though sunscreen lotions with high SPF can prevent vitamin D formation. Vitamin D is also the only vitamin that is a hormone.

It takes 3500 calories to make a pound.

Temperature can affect appetite. A cold person is more likely to eat more food.

Insects such as termites and ants provide 10% of the protein consumed worldwide. Where insects are an integral part of a diet, they contribute as much as 40% of protein.

In the United States, it is estimated that every adult unconsciously consumes one pound of insects each year due to garden produce, poor restaurant and home hygiene, and commercial foods for which the USDA allows a certain amount of insect fragments. Peanut butter, for example, is allowed to have 30 insect fragments per 100 grams.

All parts of an egg are edible, including the shell which has a high calcium content.

Each year in the United States, there are approximately six million pregnancies. This means that at any one time, about 4% of women in the U.S. are pregnant.

About 3% of all pregnant women will give birth to twins. This rate is an increase of nearly 60% since the early 1980s. However, 17% of pregnant women over 45 will give birth to twins.

Nigeria has the highest twinning rate in the world at around 4.5%. Some experts attribute this number to the large consumption of yams in Nigeria.

The average size of a full-term baby in the U.S. is 8 pounds. This is an increase from an average size of 6 pounds 30 years ago.

The largest surviving baby ever born weighed 14 pounds, 13 ounces and was nearly 23 inches in length.

According to a Time Magazine article published in 1945, the longest pregnancy on record is 375 days (as opposed to the usual 280 days). Amazingly, the delivered baby was only 6 pounds, 15 ounces.

Worldwide, there are currently three sets of surviving septuplets: one in Iowa, U.S.; one in Washington, D.C., U.S.; and one in Saudi Arabia.

Carl Perkins recording of "Blue Suede Shoes" is the only song to go to number 2 on the pop, country and R&B charts.

Dick Sargent was offered the role of Darrin Stephens first, but was under contract elsewhere, so Dick York got the part.
