Trivia Tuesday

 Here's some trivia I found interesting ...

1.The word 'news' did not come about because it was the plural of 'new.' It came from the first letters of the words North, East, West and South. This was because information was being gathered from all different directions.


2.The 3 Musketeers bar was originally split into three pieces with three different flavors: vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. When the other flavors became harder to come by during World War II, Mars decided to go all chocolate.


3.Australia is the only continent on earth without an active volcano.




4. When I asked Sam what he thought about Bruce Jenner becoming Caitlyn Jenner, instead of saying what I would have said ('What's the world coming to?'), he simply said, "Well, I hope he's happy now."   (I thought that was nice.)



5. A dime has 118 ridges on it.




6. Walt Disney World generates about 56 tons of trash every day.  Whoa.
(I won't show you a picture of that.)


7. 90 percent of women who walk into a department store immediately turn to the right.

Name of Häagen-Dazs Ice Cream Was Made up, Means Nothing The Häagen-Dazs ice cream creator was American and made up the brand name to sound Danish, unique, and sophisticated. It doesn't mean anything. - See more at: http://www.funfactz.com/food-and-drink-facts/haagen-dazs-name-2988.html#sthash.YxkrB91j.dpuf

8. The sound of E.T. walking was made by someone squishing her hands in jelly.
'Course E.T was on so long ago some of you might not know which one is E.T.


All of this trivia must be true.... it was on the Internet..
well, except Sam's words about Caitlyn Jenner.


See you next time.
