Despite Texas's reputation as a heavily Republican state, only 5 of its 46 governors throughout history have been Republican. And only 2 out of 41 before 1979.

i found this today ma and i were talking about how long 3D has been around. far as i knew 3D movies was a newer concept, i was wrong.

The first presentation of 3D films before a paying audience took place at the Astor Theater, New York, on June 10, 1915.

The first 3D feature film was Nat Deverich's 5-reel melodrama Power of Love (US '22), starring Terry O'Neil and Barbara Bedford. It premiered at the Ambassador Hotel Theater, Los Angeles, on September 27, 1922.

The first feature-length talkie in color and 3D was Alexander Andreyevsky's Soyuzdetfilm production Robinson Crusoe (USSR '47), starring Pavel Kadochnikov as Crusoe and Y. Lyubimov as Friday

The first 3D feature with stereophonic sound was Warner Brothers' House of Wax (US '53). When it was premiered at the Paramount Theater, New York, with 25 speakers

There are weird similarities between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846. John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946. Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860. John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960. Both were shot in the back of the head in the presence of their wives. Lincoln was shot in the Ford Theatre. Kennedy was shot in a Lincoln, made by Ford. Both wives lost their children while living in the White House. Both Presidents were shot on a Friday. Lincoln's secretary was named Kennedy. Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson. Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln, was born in 1808. Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908. Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse. Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theater. Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

There are two animals that never age and can theoretically live forever: the jellyfish turritopsis nutricula and the hydra.

To build the Death Star today, it would cost 16 septillion US dollars. That's not including the cost of all the stuff built onto it.

Ok. I have to ask... What do they mean or what are they? And... How do you pronounce them? Use phonetics if possible.

They are pronounced "koom" and "krewth".

cwm is a valley. A crwth is an ancient stringed instrument of Celtic origin, similar to the cithara but bowed in later types.

If you put all of the average person's farts in a lifetime into one super long fart, it would last 8.7 days.

The same source says it's enough to blow up a small apartment building.
