Did you know…?

Did you know that today is National Trivia Day? Nobody is sure when it started or where it came from, but even Google knows about it.


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.

Happy National Trivia Day! Feel free to share your favorite trivia in the comments.
