The tseer you always hear in movies as an "eagle" call is actually a red-tail hawk call; eagles sound nothing like that.

Wow, useless trivia.  Something I excel at!

Buick was the first car manufacturer to introduce seat belts as a standard feature.

James bond's fave drink is actually whiskey.  The vodka martini was actually sean connery's favorite.

It is illegal to buy rice from a foreign country in China.

The modern act of kissing originated in ancient Rome, where men would kiss their wives upon returning home to see if the wife had been drinking.

Not entirely true, though I'll have to do more research on this. Might want to read this:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucker_48

Quote
.......but Tucker took a different track, designing a safety car with innovative features and modern styling. His specifications called for a water-cooled aluminum block flat-6 rear engine, disc brakes, four-wheel independent suspension, fuel injection, the location of all instruments within reach of the steering wheel, seat belts, and a padded dashboard.

Ah, I had forgotten about poor ol' Tucker.  Okay, Buick was the first major manufacturer to use them.

If a Que ball was the size of Earth, it would be smoother than Earth.

Ketchup used to be a medicine in the US in the late 19th century.

Also, it shouldn't be pronounced [kat-sup], I don't even know what "Katsup" is..... :P

The phrase "parting shot" originated with the Parthinians, a division of Greek cavalry archers.  They were known to charge the enemy full tilt, then break away and retreat.  When the enemy attempted to follow the retreating cavalry, the riders would turn in the saddle and fire volleys of arrows into the oncoming charge.  This became known as the "Parthinian Shot" tactic, eventually being modernized into "parting shot."

The expression "Give it the whole nine yards" originated in WW2.  The .50 caliber machine guns mounted on the U.S. P-51 Mustang fighter planes were fed by ammo belts that measured 27 feet long, or 9 yards.  Thus, if a pilot was ordered to "give it the whole 9 yards" it meant to empty your qmmo reserve into a particular target.
