  1. Official temperatures are taken in shade, not under sunlight.
  2. Michael Jackson’s first solo number one hit was the song “Ben” in 1972, from a horror movie called “Ben” about a killer rat.  Michael was 14 years old when he recorded it.
  3. Jennifer Lopez was the first woman to have a number one movie and album in the same week.  It was in 2001 . . . the movie was “The Wedding Planner” and the album was “J.Lo.”
  4. McDonald’s invented bubble gum-flavored broccoli a few years ago, but wound up scrapping it because the kids who taste-tested it found it too confusing.
  5. The people who created the mp3 used the same song over and over to test their compression:  Tom’s Diner” by Suzanne Vega.  They picked it because, quote, “a warm, acapella voice” is the hardest thing to compress.
