    According to imdb.com, there was one episode where Mr. Slate found out he and Barney were relatives and gave him an executive job over Fred but it was a one-episode plot.

    The first television was invented in 1927 by a 21 year old man who had lived in a house with no electricity until he was 14.

    Other than when on a ride or in a show, guests at Disney theme parks are never more than 30 feet from a trash can. The spacing was based on how long it took Walt Disney to eat a hot dog.

    It takes 374 trees to produce the toilet paper that one person will use in their lifetime.

    You sure about that? I'm probably missing something obvious, because I'm kinda known for that, but the math on this seems to be a bit off. If there are roughly 8 billion people in the world, then it would take 374 x 8 billion trees?

    Then again, India is one of the most densely populated countries on Earth and don't they just piss and shit in the streets there? Stands to reason that they probably don't use toilet paper, so adjusting the math - 374 x 7 billion trees? Still not added up.

    Especially women, ever see that spectacle? They go take a piss and it looks like they have their hand stuck in a beehive!
