Helen Mirren has played three different queens of England on film.

(And a King Arthur-bonking sorceress to boot.)


At midnight, the 9th of March, the best-selling title on Sweden's largest internet bookstore is Hyreslagen: En Kommentar (The Rent Act: A Commentary).

Apple seeds are weakly poisonous but are the only part of the entire apple you can't eat. The core contains more energy than the rest of it.

Dr. Pepper can be found in 8 fl oz glass bottles.


Nikola Tesla invented Alternate Current electricity. He wanted it to be free for all people.
Thomas Edison patented Direct Current electricity. He made sure that it wasn't free...

This is also where the band ACDC got their name.

One of my high school teachers, who didn't think much of AC/DC, tried to convince us that Brian Johnson was actually Bon Scott reincarnated by the power of Satan.

He did not convince us.

I hee hee!ed with glee, years ago, when I read a local alt weekly describe AC/DC as the "masters of the single entendre" and I can't remember who or where it was--someone I knew? something I read?--that pointed out that there has never been a single drum fill on any AC/DC record ever.

AC/DC (followed closely by Yellow Dingo) is the best thing to have come from Australia, imho.

That used to be the ONLY size you could get. I know. I was there. That's the way most sodas were bottled in my long ago and hallowed youth.

I am morbidly curious to know what subject this guy taught.


Probably either music or language arts.

And there's been like, what?, a half-dozen AC/DC drummers over the last 40 years? You'd think one of them would be like "f*~# it, I don't care what you say, Angus, I'm soloing on 'Whole Lotta Sink the Stiff Upper Pink Done Dirt Cheap'" but apparently, not.

That might work well as an encounter in an AP, depending on the average level of the party.

And one of their drummers was Simon Wright, who went on to play with Dio, and sites Cozy Powell and John Bonham as two of his influences. I guess he just needed time off from being a good drummer.

That is still better than being the new drummer for Spinal Tap; the most dangerous job in the world.

But why would you need to escape a Helicopter underwater? They can't chase you down there.

Oh, my sweet summer child... Zombie Special Forces train for all contingencies in preparation for the upcoming zombiepocalypse, er, Heatbeat-Challenged Pride Parade. Yeah, that's the ticket. So hurry out to your downtown main street and reserve a space to watch!

Soon.

No kidding. My partner got caught in a seat belt malfunction and they had to dive into the pool and cut him free.

And, per IMDB:

"His broad spectrum of character voices, noises and other vocal effects that have appeared over the last 40 years in motion pictures, have vaulted him to number one on the "All Time Top 100 Stars at the Box office" list. The revenue of films he has participated in have generated over 12 billion dollars worldwide. His work in over 90 films has put him ahead of Eddie Murphy, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and Samuel L. Jackson.

Nicholas Cage is (along with his cousin Sofia Coppola) the third generation of Oscar winners in the Coppola family. His uncle, Francis Ford Coppola and his grandfather, Carmine Coppola, are the other two generations. They are the second family to do so, the first family is the Hustons - Anjelica Huston, John Huston and Walter Huston.

In the 1932 version of The Mummy, 'Ardath Bey' (the name Imhotep assumes after his exhumation) is an anagram of 'Death by Ra'.


... that Pierre, the capital of South Dakota, is pronounced "pier," as in "take a long walk off a short" one?

... that only three angels are mentioned in canonical scripture? Those are Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.

... that the Showa version of Godzilla can not only turn himself into a magnetic force and employ lightning to heal himself, but utilize his atomic breath to fly?

... that despite the Western fascination with and awe for the katana, for the most part Japanese iron ore was decidedly inferior to European and Middle-Eastern?

This applies only if you don't count spouses as "family." If you do, John Farrow (won 1956) - Andre Previn (1958) - Woody Allen (1977) would qualify as 1st, I think.
