  1. The city of New Bern, North Carolina uses almost the same flag as Bern, Switzerland . . . except that its bear does not have a red penis.  (Here’s Bern, and here’s New Bern.)
  2. The U.S. military supported the movie “Independence Day” and even offered military costumes and props, until the film refused to eliminate mentions of Area 51.  Then the military withdrew all its support.
  3. There are four states where people can take the bar exam and become lawyers without going to law school:  California, Virginia, Vermont, and Washington.
  4. Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, was so good at “Tetris” he used to dominate the top charts in “Nintendo Power” magazine.  He even started submitting under fake names when they refused to print so many of his scores.
  5. Marvel Comics, which owns the Incredible Hulk, got $100 in royalties from the WWF for every match Hulk Hogan wrestled and a small piece of his royalties too.  And Hogan wasn’t allowed to wear green or purple like the Incredible Hulk.
