READY FOR HORROR?
In the first friday the 13th movie, the killer is not jason voorhees, but jasons mother.

One of Johnny Depp's first appearances was in a nightmare on elm street.

The exorcist was the first blockbuster horror movie, and because of serious explicit content and biblical references, many found it offending

Many know of George A. Romero's night of the living dead, but it was followed by (in the same series), dawn of the dead, day of the dead, land of the dead, and the return of the dead.

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed Up Zombies is widely considered the worst movie ever made. look it up.

no! the skies started falling in the year of '82. I remember it like it was yesterday... I had a puff on my 'peace pipe'. Things started swirling. I clearly remember my neighbour shouting in his hippie drawl, 'the sky is falling! it's a conspircay, man! aliens are invading us! they have distorted the effect of gravity with their gravity affecting guns!' I waddled out to see what he was talking about, and sure enuogh, once I finally managed to open the front door, he was right! The world WAS swirling! "Demn aliens!" I shouted, firing my shotgun in the air! Soon aftre these sirens came- it was the alien mothership's radio frequency, I'm sure! then, traveling down the road, this round cop car came- it was aliens! they claimed they weren't, then took me downtown- they were aliens!

Well, uh here's another fact: Indiana Jones' original name was going to be Indiana Smith, but the people making the movie (Raiders of the Lost Ark) decided Indiana Jones sounded better...

Albert Einstein actually dropped out of high school. And, Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest word in a major English dictionary. However, the longest word in the world is this: (I can't paste it here because it has 189,819 letters and it would up too much space). Here's the link: http://blog.jmay.us/2009/11/longest-english-word.html

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America's shield is made of the kinetic energy-absorbing Vibranium. Since the shield is entirely made of Vibranium, if it were actually thrown against a wall, it would theoretically drop to the ground instead of ricochet.

(That conclusion comes from one source I found on YouTube, and I dunno if it's entirely true.)

A lot of things that happen in movies don't work in the real world, even if one suspended the rules of physics, but that's what makes them cool. But only a little bit of stretching the laws of physics, like shields made of fictional alloys ricocheting off walls and Tony Stark inventing a new element.

When NASA started sending astronauts into space, they quickly discovered ball point pens would not work in zero gravity.

To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12,000,000,000 developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 degrees celsius.

The Russians used a pencil.

True, true... But that's when you use one of these: http://pilotpen.us/brands/frixion/frixion-ball/ (of course, then the ink in the space pen would have to be adjusted to conform to the erasibility...) :-)

Dihydrogen Monoxide can be found in many sources. It is used:

as an additive to food products, including jarred baby food and baby formula, and even in many soups, carbonated beverages and supposedly "all-natural" fruit juices
in cough medicines and other liquid pharmaceuticals,
in spray-on oven cleaners,
in shampoos, shaving creams, deodorants and numerous other bathroom products,
in bathtub bubble products marketed to children,
as a preservative in grocery store fresh produce sections,
in the production of beer by all the major beer distributors,
in the coffee available at major coffee houses in the US and abroad,
in Formula One race cars, although its use is regulated by the Formula One Racing Commission, and
as a target of ongoing NASA planetary and stellar research.

Some known dangers of DMHO:

Death due to accidental inhalation of DHMO, even in small quantities.
Prolonged exposure to solid DHMO causes severe tissue damage.
Excessive ingestion produces a number of unpleasant though not typically life-threatening side-effects.
DHMO is a major component of acid rain.
Gaseous DHMO can cause severe burns.
Contributes to soil erosion.
Leads to corrosion and oxidation of many metals.
Contamination of electrical systems often causes short-circuits.
Exposure decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.
Found in biopsies of pre-cancerous tumors and lesions.
Given to vicious dogs involved in recent deadly attacks.
Often associated with killer cyclones in the U.S. Midwest and elsewhere, and in hurricanes including deadly storms in Florida, New Orleans and other areas of the southeastern U.S.
Thermal variations in DHMO are a suspected contributor to the El Nino weather effect.
