Random Thursday


Today we've a bit of a mishmash with the pop culture facts in Shane Carley's True Facts That Sound Like Bull$#*t. I am really enjoying this chapter since it mentions movies or TV shows or actors that I know or at least heard of! Lol.

L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, also wrote the screenplay for Battlefield Earth.

And John Travolta starred in it. Interesting.

If you were to play "Stairway to Heaven" backwards you might hear odd messages. Though the band denies every writing/playing the song to intentionally have these messages, it's also been proven to be impossible.

That's freaky!

Did you know that despite being an iconic character in Star Wars, Darth Vadar only appears onscreen for a total of 12 minutes.

I feel like I heard this once before somewhere.

Did you know that Sid's carpet in Toy Story was based on the carpet of the hotel in The Shining?

Such's frightening! Lol.

Did you know that (at time of publication of this book, so 2017) only one person has ever guessed the exact price of their showcase on The Price is Right? Many accused him of cheating, but it apparently was legitimate.

I definitely never saw that episode! I always thought it was cool when someone won BOTH showcases! I honestly haven't watched much of this show since Bob retired. I always envisioned going on this show with my grandma and other family members when I was of age as I remember watching this a lot at her house growing up. Sadly that never happened.
