Scandalica sounds like a heavy metal band. Or a skeleton condition.

This is a fun fact about me, inspired by the forum poster you've missed rheas about Erica.

I've always had a thing for girls names ending in -ica. Erica, Monica, etc. I don't know why. Monica Bellucci was hot already, but having the name Monica makes her even hotter.

In light of my "It's Time to End the War on Salt" post in the Morning News thread...

Fun Fact #1: the World Health Organization recommends limiting sodium intake to 2,000 mg a day.

Fun Fact #2: meta analysis of studies indicates that an intake of 2,000 mg or less of sodium is associated with increased mortality and higher risk for cardiovascular disease.

A lot of people know Fun Fact #1, but Fun Fact #2 is probably only very rarely known.

Fun Fact #1: the four minute mile was first broken on this day in 1954. Roger Bannister ran it in what at the time was considered unachievable: 3 minutes 59.4 seconds. The record stood for just 17 days, and has been broken many times since.

Morocco's Hicham El Guerrouj, who ran a time of 3:43.13 in Rome in 1999, currently holds the record.

Fun Fact #2: Only one man - Daniel Komen of Kenya - has ever run 2 four-minute miles back to back, running 2 miles in 7:58.61 in Hechtel, Belgium on 19 July 1997. He did it again in 1998. The women's record for 2 miles is a just shy of a minute slower, 8:58.58, set by Ethiopian Meseret Defar in Brussels, Belgium on 14 September 2007.
