Lyme Disease is the fastest growing infectious disease in the country with over 300,000 cases reported yearly. That's not accounting for the thousands misdiagnosed or unreported. You think Zika is a threat, think again.
At least 4000 children have been born in my country with microencephaly secondary to Zika virus infections. Those children are disabled and will never lead normal lives. They may die young, or may just go on suffering for the next 70 years or so.
You are concerned about Lymes disease? Fine. You feel it necessary to downgrade the pain that all of those mothers felt when their children were born in pain. Not so fine.
Eddie and Alex Van Halen's father Jan Van Halen was an accomplished jazz musician who played the clarinet and saxophone. He toured professionally throughout the "big band" era of the '40s and '50s.

Steve "Police Academy" Guttenberg was offered the lead role in 2013's "Sharknado," but he turned it down and the part went to Ian Ziering.
When "Sharknado" became a surprise hit he realized he'd made a mistake, and when SyFy channel came knocking again to offer Guttenberg the lead role in another potential creature feature franchise - "Lavalantula" - he gladly signed up.

Ray Davies of The Kinks wrote their 1982 song "Come Dancing" as a tribute to his older sister Rene, who had died in 1957 at the age of 31. She had been dancing at the local "Palais" (dance hall) - her favorite pastime - when she suffered a sudden heart attack. Ray was 13 years old at the time.
The Kinks' American record label didn't want to release "Come Dancing" as a single in the U.S. at first, because they thought the subject matter was too "British" and wouldn't connect with American audiences, however, thanks to heavy rotation on MTV, the song became the band's biggest U.S. hit in more than a decade.
People over the age of 8 should not drink milk, as our digestion changes and it becomes difficult to digest and is not good for us.
According to the calibrations of the late Dr. David Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D., in his book TRUTH vs FALSEHOOD :
(1) Hollywood calibrates at a consciousness of 190.
(2) In New York City- Upper East Side calibrates at a consciousness level of 430
West Side calibrates at a consciousness level of 245
Inner City (low income areas) calibrates at a consciousness level of 135
(3)Regions of the United States-East Coast calibrates at a consciousness level of 360
West Coast calibrates at a consciousness level of 290
Midwest calibrates at a consciousness level of 440
(4) Distributions of the consciousness levels of humankind- 78% have calibration levels below 200 while 22% have calibration levels above 200.
According to the late Dr. Hawkins, anything at 200 & above is truthful & positive while anything below 200 is a falsehood & negative.

British actor Christopher Lee and James Bond creator Ian Fleming were step-cousins and they frequently played golf together. During pre-production for the 1962 film version of "Dr. No," Fleming suggested Lee for the villain role, but the part had already been cast.

Don't mess with old people.
An old prospector walks his tired, old mule into a western town one day. He'd been out in the desert for about six months without a single drop of whiskey. He walked up to the first saloon he came to and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger walked out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.
The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?"
The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance. I just never wanted to."
A crowd had gathered by then and the gunslinger said, "Well, you old fool, you're a'gonna' dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet.
The old prospector was hopping around and everybody was laughing. When the gunslinger fired his last bullet, he holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.
The old man reached up on the mule, drew his shotgun, and pulled both hammers back making a double clicking sound. The gunslinger heard the sound, froze, and everything got real quiet. The crowd watched as the gunslinger slowly turned around, looking down both barrels of the shotgun.
The old man asked, "Hey, young fool, did you ever kiss a mule's ass?"
The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir, but I've always wanted to."

If riding on a train, you must obey all their rules. I was on a train going from calif. to arizona, and the train actually stopped in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere and put four men off the train for smoking in the bathroom and being disruptive while others where sleeping.
An ai is a three-toed sloth whose top speed is 0.3 miles per hour. Though an ai may briefly move at its highest rate, it lives out its life so slowly that algae grows on their fur which, as it turns out, is great camouflage for them. Ais cannot walk on level ground, but they can swim well when not traveling through trees. That their name makes a stupendous Scrabble word is reason enough to like them.

Progressive rockers Yes named their 1983 album "90125" after its UPC catalog number.
On this date (Dec 17) in 1989, the first half-hour "Simpsons" episode - "Simpsons Roasting On An Ope Fire" aka "The Simpsons Christmas Special" premiered.
Clear examples abound of design in living creatures. One is the tendon that emerges from a chest muscle in most birds. It is threaded through a hole in the bird’s bone, wraps around a “pulley,” and then is attached to the top of the humerus bone. This way, when the muscle flexes, the wing moves up. Each specification involved is exactly fitted to perform its needed function. If only one of them failed to work, the bird would not fly.
In recent decades, the incredible world of tiny machines inside living cells has been revealed. It demonstrates a supremely efficient, and in many cases perfectly specified, collection of parts upon which each living cell depends. Large creatures were clearly designed, but it is even more certain that single cells must have had a Designer of unsurpassed engineering genius. There is no such thing as a simple living organism.
One of the thirteen articles in the 1781 U.S. Articles of Confederation states that if Canada wants to be admitted into the U.S., it will automatically be accepted. (Canada has yet to take them up on the offer.)
The hit Barbara Streisand/Neil Diamond duet "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" was originally two separate songs.
Diamond created the song in 1977 for TV producer Norman Lear, as a potential theme for a sitcom called "All That Glitters."
The show ended up using a different theme song but Barbra Streisand liked "Flowers" so much that she recorded a cover of it. A radio DJ spliced Diamond's and Streisand's versions together to create a "duet," and response to it was so positive that Neil and Barb quickly recorded an "official" duet version that went to #1 in 1978.
Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill of ZZ Top are famous for their trademark long beards.

I was reading over this thread, I love facts and this thread is so interesting. Thank you all for having fun with me. I don't know what I was on though. Was I high on life? What a psycho. Lol. Anyway, thanks everybody for participating. Obviously a few of you enjoy crazy facts as well.
As their habitats shrink, tigers and lions are catching distemper from dogs. A beautiful young Siberian tiger walked into the middle of a town in Russia one day, plonked herself down and just sat there, staring. They tried to scare her away, but nothing was registering. A wildlife agency captured and cared for her until she died a few weeks later.
Doesn't sound like there's a lot of action going on in Michel Thayer's book!
Useless rock trivia:
Deep Purple's first album (Shades of Deep Purple, 1968) was first released in the U.S. on Tetragrammaton Records -- a label co-owned by comedian Bill Cosby.
Today I learned:
"Pupper" (a popular internet/meme slang term for dogs) is also a Norwegian word for women's, errr... boobs.
So if you're ever in Norway and you see a girl walking her dog, do NOT ask her "Can I pet your Pupper?" cuz you'll get smacked.
