The early Star Wars novel 'Splinter of the Mind's Eye' was intended to be filmed as a cheap made for TV sequel to A New Hope if it flopped at the box office and 20th Century Fox didn't pick up The Empire Strikes Back. It's set entirely on an alien planet, so no spaceship scenes would need to be filmed, and Han and Chewie didn't appear, so no having to pay Harrison Ford or make another Wookiee costume for Peter Mayhew. Ironically, it has a scene where Luke fights Darth Vader and lops off his lightsaber hand, which eventually happened in Return of the Jedi.

The tales from the crypt TV show lasted longer than the comic book it was based on

TV show original run 1989-1996
Comic book run 1951-aprox 1954

Similarly the TV show M. A. S. H a show about the Korean war lasted longer than the actual Korean war
1972-1983

The 1980 movie raise the Titanic was a box office bomb makining only 7 million on a then blockbuster 40 million dollar budget. Ironically the actual Titanic cost roughly 7.5 million dollars to make in 1912 unadjusted for inflation

Fun farming facts that are also useful if you’re a certain kind of degenerate!
Compost materials are broken down into two broad categories; “hot greens” that compost fast and smell strongly due to their high nitrates to carbon ratio (and are usually green) and “cold browns” that due to their low nitrates to carbon ratio, take forever to decompose if not mixed with greens. Most compost heaps are best when being one part green to three parts brown and a big scoop of local soil to help the local micro-flora adapt to the compost.
Woody plants are especially nitrogen-hungry due to how wood is expensive to produce biochemically. You can help by watering with a good natural compost that you definitely have at home. Human urine has about a 1 to 1 ratio of carbon and nitrates making it a very hot green. It’s also mostly water. So if you have a cherry tree in your yard you want to harvest from, collect your piss in an old jelly jar and water the tree with it you sick fuck.
Remember that a woody plant’s young soft roots are about as far from the trunk as the edge of the crown as a rule of thumb.

The training sword in the old DOS video game Zeliard is actually the weapon with the most potential. Because of a bug in the game, you can level up the sword, something unheard of in games back in the day. This can make the sword retardedly strong, if you're autistic enough to do it.

I thought you needed to know.

Despite being credited for composing the score for an American werewolf in London. Elmer Bernstein's music for the film totals less than 10 mins. He did compose a track for the transformation scene but it was replaced by Blue moon at the last minute. Though transformation would later be reused for his score on heavy metal.


In the original Halloween, Laurie strode and Dr loomis don't appear on screen together until the last 5 minutes and say less than 10 lines to each other.


Also in Halloween 2018 Laurie owning revolvers, lever action rifles and shotguns With only pump actions and pistol grips reflect Jamie Lee Curtis own views on gun rights. She believes people have the right to own guns but only the kinds her character owns and never bump stocks, semi autos, AR-15'S or any accessories that are found on guns used in mass shootings.


Similarly there are no guns in alien 3 until the very last scene because at the time sigourney weaver had become pro gun control.

And don't compost hair even if it seems like a good idea.

In the late 1800s, the National Cash Register Company used to buy up used cash registers from competing companies, replace all the brass and steel gears with cardboard ones, and send salesmen out to sell them to unsuspecting stores. They'd work for a while and break down, and the saleman would come out and go 'Well, you should have bought one from National Cash Register. I can sell you one but it won't be cheap.'

The NCR executive in charge of the campaign later left to found his own company, the Computing-Tabulating-Recording Company, which changed its name to International Business Machines, or IBM.

The original Wasp and Stinger 20 ton battlemechs from Battletech only had 48 points of armor. The 20 ton Locust had 64.

The gun in the famous "smile you son of a bitch" scene is an m1 garand. Speliburg originally wanted to use an m1 carbine that was seen earlier in the film but it was misplaced at the last minute.

The dual automatic pistols (and yes they are pistols) you can get in resident evil code Veronica are based on the calico 100mps, a semi rare automatic pistol that could also convert to a semi auto rifle with mods


On a differnt note... Part of the reason female fertility can suffer complications after just the 20s. Is because generations of having women married and pregnant often before they reached age 20. Which was common among many cultures (not just Islamic ones) caused the human body to naturally adapt the female system to reach its peak at such a young age. Since the age of men was rarely if ever taken into consideration men didn't develop this evolutionary biology

In the movie Die Hard, you see in one scene where the terrorists set up a missile launcher to attack a police armored car. There is a problem with the scene however. The device one of the terrorists uses to put the missile launcher in a steady place can't be used repeatedly that fast. I forget the name of it, but that nail-gun looking thing can't go at the speed the movie dictates.

Also extra fun fact: Bree Larsen hates the movie Die Hard because it's over two hours of a man with bare feet without toenail fungus like she has. This is why she's constantly bitter about older men.

In the very first shot of child's play you can see Chris sarandoun's character detective Norris seeming to toss his coat away for no reason.

The coat is actually part of a disguise he used to lure Charles Lee ray aka Chucky out of hiding by cross dressing as a woman ray is stalking. This was part of the original workprint cut of child's play that ran almost 2 and a half hours long.

99% of all life that has ever existed on Earth has gone extinct:

This fucks with my head. There’s so much we don’t know about our planet and its history. This is especially interesting to me as someone with a lifelong fascination with paleontology and prehistoric life.

A lot of extinct animals are only known from one or a couple of fossilized specimens (in some cases, just a few bones). The odds of an animal becoming fossilized-especially well enough to last for tens of millions of years- are astronomically low, so there are probably millions and millions of species that died out long before us that we’ll never know existed. There are so many gaps in our knowledge, it’s crazy.

Some of the stuff we do know about is freaky enough, like Anomalocaris, a giant mantis shrimp from the Cambrian period that could bite off your fingers:

Or the Eurypterids, giant sea scorpions from the Silurian period:

If they ever make another X-Com: Terror From the Deep game, you know those would make great terror units.

There's nothing left of the original animatronic t-rex from jurassic park. Natural latex decays when when exposed to water and light and the hydrolics and mechanical parts rust and break down. Rexy stood in sotarage for years being only briefly taken out for a few times while filming the lost world and jp3, until eventually her latex had gotten too discolored and her skeleton too unreliable that she was shreded and scraped.

hell this is true of almost all animatronics from the past 40 years, hoggle from labirynth, the werewolf from an american werewolf in london, zilla from godzilla 98, and all the puppets from the tv show dinosaurs.

Aww man, I'd actually love to see Pilot from Farscape on display. Sad to think that doesn't exist.

The same happened to the foam models from Nightmare Before Christmas, but a museum that bought a lot of them shortly after the movie's release had them restored recently by the original artists, so those will persist.
