    Ha So! That devious Coronal Randers

    How KFC made Christmas all about fried chicken — in Japan. KFC has become a Christmas tradition in Japan. This is largely thanks to Takeshi Okawara, who managed the first KFC restaurant in Japan. These days, Japanese people could end up waiting in long lines if they don't pre-order their Christmas meals from KFC.Dec 25, 2017.

    There's always been disagreement among Batman fans about whether Gotham City is supposed to be a fictional version of NYC or Chicago. But on the Batman TV series of the 1960's, the heroes often consulted a "Giant Lighted Lucite Map of Gotham City" in the Batcave. The map was, in fact, a map of St. Louis.

    One horse can produce 15 horsepower. Seems a bit strange.

    Super Bowl I was broadcast by two networks because each league had a network. Both networks either erased or taped over the recording leaving no footage of the game with the exception of whatever clips NFL Films has.

    Until a guy found a recording in his basement that his dad was somehow able to make. It was once believed to be worth close to a million dollars however the NFL offered them far less than that and said if they attempt to sell it elsewhere they will be sued for copyright infringement.
