In the spirit of National Trivia Day, here are a few interesting bits of trivia:

In Stargate SG-1, the actor that plays Daniel Jackson was picked because he did a perfect imitation of the character that played the role in the movie.  In season 2 of Stargate SG-1, Daniel’s wife is pregnant. Conveniently, this pregnancy was real and the actor that plays Daniel Jackson was the father.

In 1965, the Slumber Party Barbie came with a scale set to 110 pounds and a book that taught the secret to losing weight: don’t eat!

In 1980, the Mayor of Detroit presented Saddam Hussein with the key to the city.
