You heard it on Q93! Archives for 2014-05


Here are a few random facts for you.  Only one in 25 bank robberies turn violent.  FedEx would've gone under in the 1970s, but the founder gambled the company's last $5,000 in Vegas and won enough to cover their bills.  And health care CEOs got paid more than any other CEOs in the U.S. last year . . . an average salary of $12.3 million.

 

 


 

1.  Violence is actually pretty rare in bank robberies . . . it only happens about one out of 25 times.  Most of the time a robber hands the teller a note, gets the money, and leaves.

 

 

2.  FedEx almost went under back in the '70s in their early years . . . they only had $5,000 in the bank and needed to pay off $24,000.  They're still around because the founder took the last $5,000 to Vegas, gambled it on blackjack, and won $27,000.

 

 

3.  The reason Hitler shaved his mustache down to a square is because he had trouble fitting a regular mustache into a gas mask.  Although he didn't invent the look or anything.  It's the 'toothbrush' moustache, and it was made popular by Charlie Chaplin.

 

 

4.  Cats are the only domesticated animal never mentioned in the Bible.  Dogs are mentioned 14 times.

 

 

5.  Want to know why your health care is so expensive?  For the fifth time in six years, in 2013, health care CEOs were paid more than any other CEOs in the U.S. . . . an average salary of $12.3 million.  That's up 13% from 2012.

Women Are Most Likely to Gain Weight at Age 38 . . . For Men, It's Age 44

    Wanna know when you're finally going to say "screw it" and start eating donuts by the case?

 

A new survey found the ages when men and women are most likely to gain weight.  For men, it's 44 . . . for women, it's 38.

 

The main reason men gave for gaining weight in their mid 40s is that their career and family responsibilities are both peaking . . . so they stop having time for exercise.

  The main reason WOMEN gave for gaining weight in their late 30s is their KIDS . . . whether it's being too busy with the kids to exercise, or eating out of stress.

Webster's Dictionary Is Adding Hashtag, Selfie, Auto-Tune, and Turducken

 

Merriam-Webster is adding over 150 words to the newest edition of its "Collegiate Dictionary".  And as usual, things that have to do with technology and the internet tend to dominate.  Here are the top 13 new internet and tech words . . .

 

 

1. Hashtag.

 

2.  Selfie.  In November, the Oxford English Dictionary named "selfie" the Word of the Year.  Although Webster's went with "science".)

 

3. Hot spot . . . as in a WiFi hot spot.

 

4.  Big data.  Which they define as, quote, "an accumulation of data that is too large and complex for processing by traditional database management tools."

 

5.  Auto-Tune.

 

6.  Crowdfunding . . . when you raise money through websites like Kickstarter.

 

7.  Dubstep.  That's the electronic music that pretty much requires a computer to create.

 

8.  E-waste . . . which is anything tech-related that you throw away.

 

9.  Social networking.

 

10.  Tweep . . . a person who uses Twitter.

 

11.  Catfish . . . as in someone "catfishes" you online, and pretends to be someone they're not.

 

12.  Fangirl.  Obviously it's the female version of fanboy.  As in, a girl who's WAY too into something.  They're both kind of an online phenomenon.

 

13.  Spoiler alert.

 

 

But there are actually a few words that DON'T deal directly with technology and the internet. The top seven are:

 

 

1.  Baby bump.

 

2.  Fracking.

 

3.  Freegan.  That's, quote, "an activist who scavenges for free food . . . as in waste receptacles at stores and restaurants . . . as a means of reducing consumption of resources."

 

4.  Gamification . . . where you add game elements to something that ISN'T a game to make more people interested in it.

 

5.  Steampunk . . . which is, quote, "science fiction dealing with 19th-century societies dominated by historical or imagined steam-powered technology."

 

6.  Turducken . . . "a boneless chicken stuffed into a boneless duck stuffed into a boneless turkey."

 

7.  Yooper . . . a native of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Five Random Facts For Thursday

 1.  JOHNNY CASH'S birth name wasn't Johnny . . . he didn't have ANY first name.  His parents gave him initials, J.R., because they couldn't think of a name.  When he enlisted in the Air Force, they said he needed a name . . . so he picked John.

 

2.  Cats sleep so much that by the time they turn nine years old, they've only been awake about three years.

 

3.  King Olaf V of Norway competed in the Olympics while he was king . . . but not just because he could, because he was good at SAILING.  He won a gold medal at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. 

 

4.  HALL and OATES met when they were both at a concert in Philadelphia . . . and a GANG fight broke out.  They hopped in the same elevator to get away from gunshots, found out they both went to Temple University, and became friends.

 

5.  Mosquitoes have killed more people than all of the wars in history combined . . . by infecting tens of billions of people with diseases.

50-year-old Veronica Rodriguez was home in College Station, Texas last week, and heard a noise in the bathroom.  And if she wasn't ALREADY afraid of snakes . . . we're guessing she is now.

 

 

Because when she turned on the lights to the bathroom . . . she found herself face-to-face with a 12-FOOT AFRICAN PYTHON.  Somehow it had managed to get into her house, and was hanging out in her bathtub.

 

 

So she slammed the door, ran outside, and called 911.  A cop showed up with a small grocery bag to put the snake in, but he ended up calling animal control . . . who showed up with a 10-gallon bucket.  And that STILL wasn't CLOSE to big enough.

 

 

Finally, they decided to use a city TRASH CAN . . . and they managed to get the snake inside.  Then they sealed up the trash can . . . and left it by the side of Veronica's HOUSE until the next morning, when they could transport it to a rescue facility.

 

 

Apparently this python wouldn't have been dangerous to any adults . . . but it could've been dangerous to small children or pets.  No one's quite sure where it came from or how it got into Veronica's house.

Five Random Facts For Tuesday

 

1.  Before Hugo Boss became an international fashion company, they made uniforms for the Nazis.  No one knew until 1997, when the company showed up on a list of Swiss bank accounts . . . and the company admitted their Nazi ties.

 

 

2.  40% of Americans now carry less than $20 cash on them, and another 9% never carry ANY cash.  That's about HALF of us.

 

 

3.  Americans always picture Godzilla being GREEN . . . but in the Japanese movies, he was NEVER green.  He was always charcoal gray.

 

 

4.  BENJAMIN HARRISON was elected president in 1888, and was the first U.S. president to have electricity in the White House . . . but he never touched the light switches because he was afraid of getting electrocuted.

 

 

5.  In Oblong, Illinois it's illegal to have sex while you're out on a hunting or fishing trip on your wedding day.
