In 2009 James May(he of Top Gear fame) along with his team of professional helpers and members of the public/residents that lived near Brooklands race track, created a 4.75km-long Scalextric track breaking the Guinness Book of Records world record. It was equally poignant as they laid track along the last bit of existing Brooklands race track-once the home to British motor racing.

Origin of the Frisbee. Inventor Fred Morrison claims he first had the idea for a flying disc toy while tossing a cake pan around on a beach in 1937. The toy was also originally named the Flyin' Cake Pan, then the Pluto Platter before Morrison settled on the world-renowned name Frisbee. There is an alusion to how it came about in the film Back to the Future II or was it III ? anyway it was when Marty McFly picks up a 'pan' and throws it like a frisbee to try and stop a thief.

Default MLK Speech

That the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech is owned by Martin Luther King’s family, and cannot legally be used by anyone without their consent.


Star version of article originally in the NY Times

Quote:
Taylor Branch, author of a Pulitzer Prize-winning trilogy of books that chronicles King’s life and the history of the civil rights movement, said a few years ago that it is harder for Americans to learn about the speech because it is not in the public domain and that he has, to no avail, talked with the King family about it. “They are making a mistake,” he said in 2013.
The King Center, which sells a DVD of the speech for $20 on its website, did not respond to phone calls and emails about the speech and licensing. Unless the family decides to put it in the public domain beforehand, it will happen in 2038, under copyright law.
There is, however, a copy of it on YouTube .

Did you know that the woman who says "you have email" for AOL UK customers is none other than the delightful Joanna Lumley?

Now Joanna speaks to me whenever I get an email message, a step up from the default Windows sound.

Did you know
Propaganda in North Korea is given out for free .

But in Britain we're charged £150 a year for it and it's called the BBC licence fee .

Keeping Hampstead lefties in the style to which they've become used to tax is what it should be called

Another 2 toy facts from 100 Years of Iconic Toys book(listed in Daily Mail)
Guess Who?
Theo Coster, designer of Guess Who? was born in Amsterdam in 1928 and developed the concept of the game in 1979. Coster was a schoolmate of Anne Frank and would walk with her to school before their families went into hiding to escape the Gestapo.

Not so much a toy. Derived from 'craie', the French for chalk and 'ola' a then popular shorthand for 'oily', Crayola crayons first made an appearance in 1903. In 1996 the Crayola factory produced its 100 billionth crayon and today the crayons come in 120 different shades.

More if you want em!
