  1. Halley’s Comet is as far away as it will ever be in the next few months, and it will take another 37-plus years to come back to us.  The last time it passed was in 1986, and the next time is in 2061.
  2. The Woody character in “Toy Story” was originally supposed to be a ventriloquist dummy, not a cowboy.
  3. The biggest popular vote margin in U.S. presidential election history was Warren Harding winning by a 26.17% margin over James Cox in 1920.  (This doesn’t count the first nine presidential elections.  The popular vote wasn’t fully recorded and reported until 1824.)
  4. Giraffes pick their noses with their tongues.  (Here’s video.)
  5. The first time Auto-Tune was used in a major pop song was “Believe” by Cher in 1998.  And it was used…liberally.
