Original Starting post for this thread:
I was trying to remember which eggs in the refrigerator were hard boiled and which were not, when an idea for a thread topic occurred to me.

Does anybody have any fun facts to share? You know, those always fun and often useless facts that just might come in handy to know someday?

For example....

Did you know that if you were to take all of the veins from your body and lay them end to end along the equator that you would die?

FF- a true New Orleans accent is almost exactly like a Brooklyn accent and not at all the Southern/creole twang that most people expect or as it was portrayed in the movie "The Big Easy"

Good, that shows time is relevant. I say we WILL travel through time someday. It is only another measurement.

John Cazale, perhaps most famous for his role as Fredo Corleone in The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, appeared in only 5 feature films before dying of lung cancer in 1978. He was also shown (through archival footage) briefly in The Godfather Part III. I found Fredo to be such a tragic character, a terribly flawed and broken man. Cazale's portrayal, especially in Part II, was outstanding.

Fun fact #1: All films he appeared in were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. He is the only actor to hold such a distinction.

Fun fact #2: He was Al Pacino's best friend before either of them were actors. They debuted together in The Godfather.

Fun fact #3: His diagnosis of terminal lung cancer came just as his final film "The Deer Hunter" was coming into production. The studio wanted to fire him, but his friend Robert DeNiro and live-in girlfriend Meryl Streep threatened to quit the production if he was. DeNiro paid for his insurance so he could be in it. The filming schedule was rearranged to get his scenes finished first, and he died before the film was completed.

A film about him called "I Knew It Was You" was released in 2009.
