Did you know...
- The average
American inadvertently consumes approximately half a
pound of paper products every year? This figure was
arrived at by studying the amount of pulp and paper
allowed by the FDA in various food products, and assuming
an average middle-class diet. While the paper is not
nutritious (the body cannot digest wood pulp), it does
not harm it either.
- The second
man to walk on the moon, was born in Canada? Edwin
Aldrin, though never a Canadian citizen, was born in
Swift River, Saskatchewan. All of the other Apollo
astronauts were born in the continental US.
- This April, videocassette
copies of the film "The Phantom Menace" went on
sale worldwide. This special version of the 1999 movie
contains a bonus for those with sharp eyes: In one of the
(largely) computer generated scenes, a microphone boom
has been digitally added at the top of the frame. It
appears to be a black oval extending from the ceiling. If
you're not looking for it, it's hard to see, being
camouflaged by props in the shot.
