So... being me I thought that I'd start this thread!

Rules:
1) List random facts you know
2) Only one fact per post
3) Wait untill others have posted before posting a new one!

My Random Fact: The Mario Brothers are Arabian and not Italian.

That the US Navy only had 4 ships in the entire fleet that it own every bit of, and not leased in the 1980s. This was because the US kept 4 Destroyers that were sold to the Shah of Iran, but were not delivered in time before the students took our embassy personnel hostage for 444 days. So we kept the ships the Shah bought, as part of the package of payback.

Most ships have their reduction gears, the things that take the high speed of the engine down to the much slower speed of the propeller, on 99 year leases from companies such as Westinghouse.

Vinegar can be used to permanently set pleats, or permanently remove unwanted creases (use iron on high steam and hold it on vinegar-coated fabric until all vinegar has evaporated. Wash afterward unless you like smelling like vinegar).

Vinegar will also help set dyes, so if you purchase a deep indigo colored outfit, soak it in a bucket of vinegar overnight and the color will not wear away as quickly...  (handy also for colors that tend to run....)  :D

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Kahn was originally Titled Star Trek II: The Undiscovered Country.

Paramount studios then recycled the title "The Undiscovered Country" for Star Trek VI

How do I know this?: It says so on the inside of my Wrath of Kahn script! (See Picture)
