Probably not. I just didn't know what else to call it! I checked it out on Snopes.com but there was not anything about it. I don't know where he got that info. Maybe he made it up?

Here's a real Clark Gable DYK...

He (Gable) almost left the set of Gone with the Wind because of segregated washrooms! He also didn't want to go to the gala premiere because it was in Atlanta where segregation laws existed...but Hattie McDaniel insisted Gable to go.

I also thought it had to do with travel. Today a flight can get you anywhere fast. In the early days, horses, carriages, stagecoaches or slow transportation took awhile for you to get to presidential home/white house. Abe Lincoln of Illinois had to get to Washington from Illinois. No cars or planes in those days. He probably took a train. By 1930's transportation had come a long way.Less time for travel, less time to wait so the date was moved to Jan.

DYK... the first human to be caught on a photograph was a man, who was getting his shoes polished on a street in Paris. Many people and horse carriages must have passed him on the busy street, but nobody else stood still long enough to be caught on the photograph. And alas, it is very unlikely that we'll ever know who this man was.

Do you know what year it was taken?

EDIT: Never mind, I looked it up and it was 1838.
That's really amazing too. He went down in history and never even knew it.

DYK that one of the most popular flavors of ice cream in Sweden is salmiakki, or salty licorice, which can also be coal black in color.

Here's a Groundhog Day DYK...

Bill Murray almost died while filming Groundhog Day...The Groundhog bit Bill Murray. Luckily, Murray was treated right away!

Another DYK from the same movie...It was filmed in Woodstock, Illinois. Which isn't too far from Bill Murray's home... Chicago!

DYK that . . . For United States Selective Service, Individuals who are born female and changed their gender to male are not required to register. Individuals who are born male and changed their gender to female are still required to register at age 18-26.

Here's a good DYK for Black History Month...

DYK...Josephine Baker was not only known in Paris for her exotic Banana Dance, but she was one of the early celebrities to stand for Civil Rights in her birth country The United States!

Another DYK...Grace Kelly was at The Stork Club when Baker was kicked-out in 1951. Once Kelly heard about that, she and Baker became close friends until Baker's death in 1975! Grace Kelly even helped Josephine Baker out of bankruptcy when Kelly became princess of Monaco!

Did You Know there's a conspiracy that the government actually paid Stanley Kubrick to stage the moon landing?

Did you know that Kubrick was too busy making "2001: A Space Odyssey," to be involved in any kind of presumed government conspiracy?

Another Black History Did You Know...

George Washington Carver didn't invent peanut butter! But he did say peanuts are edible and may fight polio.

Another George Washington Carver DYK...he was good friends with Henry Ford, Booker T. Washington, and John Harvey Kellogg. Carver also turned-down a deal with Thomas Edison and he was very modest when it came to clothes and money.
