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.
