  1. Dogs can see blue and yellows, but NOT reds and greens.  This makes their red-green color blindness similar to about 8% of men and 0.5% of women.
  2. The ukulele version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by IZ (Israel Kamakawiwo’ole) was number one on the Billboard World Digital Songs chart for 116 weeks in a row.  That’s the record for any song being #1 on any chart.
  3. Jimi Hendrix got paid $18,000 for playing at Woodstock, the most any performer got.  A band called Quill got paid the least: $375.
  4. There were only 15 runners in the first Boston Marathon in 1897, and only 10 of them finished.  The guy who won ran it in two hours and 55 minutes, which is about 50 minutes slower than the guy who won it last year.
  5. Your fingernails grow approximately 3.5 millimeters, or 0.14 inches, per month and your toenails grow about 1.6 millimeters, or 0.06 inches, per month.
