Before new line cinema, Wes craven almost made a nightmare on elm street for Disney. They were willing to buy the script and produce the film because like Wes they were desperate for a hit to stimulate business and get them out of financial trouble but had two conditions for the film. One it had to be PG that meant no sex or gore which was what we'd was well known for and two, the movie had to have a happy ending. Ironically Wes would have been fine with the second condition he wanted nightmare on elm street to have a happy ending and been a done in one story but wasn't willing to tone down the violence and so took the story to new line.

I wouldn't say princess, Nancy actually took action and was a genuine badass, if anything Jessie would have the first male Disney princess...but then again like I said there would have only been one movie maybe and Wes had nothing to do with any of the sequels save for writing 3 and new nightmare

He could have become an opera singer instead of an actor, at one point that path looked more fruitful. After the war in the late 40's he was in Stockholm and while singing student songs with the locals a small guy, Jussi Björling as it turns out, came up to him and said that he should come by the Royal Opera in the morning. Björling is a legend, a huge name in opera at the time, and he straight up told Lee that if he could support himself in Stockholm for a couple of years they would train him for free and with time he would absolutely become one of the big names in opera. It was a fine offer but he didn't have the money to live there and he was already pursuing acting.

Half a century later he acted in The New Adventures of Robin Hood, the worst thing ever put on TV.
Don't forget that while he was in Stockholm, He struck up a relationship with Henriette von Rosen , a member of the Von Rosen family. He was close to get married to her (got even the blessning by Gustav V of Sweden because Lee lived an insane life) but he broke the engamgent off because he thought he couldn't support her with his work. They stayed friend for a long time.

Bullets are also called "Rounds" because in the early days of firearms, firing squads were deployed in such a way that when one of them shot, the next one would move forward to shoot while the backline reloaded their weapons. Because the soldiers did a shooting round and a reloading round, eventually the shots in the weapon were called "rounds".

The Spanish tercios were very apt with firearms and usually they carried them in small prepared satchels that they had hanged in a leather band along their chest. These were called "the apostles" because every soldier was issued always 12 of them.

Eventually, many people came to see that having prepared cartridges for your musket instead of doing every step of the reloading manually saved a lot of time in the battlefield, mainly for muzzleloading weapons. This is why prepared paper capsules, called "paper cartridges" became extremely popular and useful, specially amon the british emprie. This primitive bullets had a measured amount of gunpowder and a bullet inside, all sealed in a paper capsule usually treated with animal fat or beeswax in order to prevent the mixture to get wet and in aiding to the ignition. Due to the rumors that the bullets contained tallow derived form pig or cow fat, this created an enormous anti-british sentiment in the sepoy soldiers of the british empire, leading to the Indian rebellion of 1857.

Lots of people like to make fun of Glasgow’s subway and when compared to other light rail networks it does look pretty pathetic

But the subway itself is more of a small extension to Glasgow’s massive heavy rail system, rivaled only by London for its size

this includes a route which has the distinction of being the longest suburban service in the UK, running from Helensburgh Central on the west coast, to Edinburgh Waverley on the east coast and vice versa

During the Spanish Golden Century (Siglo the Oro) literature was in full boom and the most popular writers were Francisco de Quevedo and Enrique Góngora. Both were extremely apt in poetry but they hated each others guts so much that they always managed to slip insulting verses adressed to each other in their works. The saltiest one was Quevedo because he made an insulting poem directly adressed to Góngora, picking on him because he had a huge nose.

There is a strong statistical correlation between shark bite deaths and sales of ice cream in any given year.
The hotter the year, the more ice cream gets eaten, the more people spend leisure time at the beach. Makes sense

As for my fact:

The USS Missouri (as well as a few other Iowa class Battleships) started their lives off being able to launch 3 US Naval seaplanes to use as fire support/gunnery assistants. Then for Korea they has switched to helicopters. When used in the Gulf War, 40 years later, they launched drones fairly similar to the RQ-7 Shadow still in use today.

Halloween 3 season of the witch original would have been very clear with how it ended. After tom Atkins screams stop it stop stop it into the phone the credits would roll and be accompanied by the sounds of little children screaming their deaths and possibly the screams of their parents seeing them die and sirens from emergency vehicles.

However this was dropped at the last minute and replaced with the more ambiguous ending and simply playing the theme over the credits. Thought officially director Tommy Lee Wallace has stated that he personally believes Atkins succeeded in stopping the broadcast...but not before a few chips activated.


Also Halloween 3 has no connection to the previous films or Micheal Myers because it was originally the first in a series of films that would have various stories set around Halloween and be a different story each time.

Damn, it would have been good if Halloween would have been an antology series instead of going into the Thorn saga that shat all over the series. Still, at least the last Halloween movie was nice.

For many years, economical bodies all over the planet used differen indexes in order to evaluate the overall economy of different countries. The most important is the Big Mac Index, which measured the adquisitive power of the population using as a measuring stick the price of a Big Mac since it utilizes the predicted exchange between dollars and the currency of the country since they would virtually cost the same amount of money. This index gave raise to the word Burgernomics and in 2009 the countries with the highest adquisitive power were Norway and Venezuela. It's obvious that one of them has lost the podium, as Norway is still leading alongside Switzerland.

I'm suspicious about that actually being true, because in some countries, a Big Mac is going to cost a lot more in terms of local currency because it and McDonald's in general is considered an exotic import of some sort. Or the country is protectionist. So a local item of comparable nutritional value might be much cheaper, whereas in the U.S. much of what McDonald's sells is literally subsidized by the government.
