Another toy factoid for you.
Space Hopper. The first Space Hopper was produced in the UK in 1969 and its popularity sky-rocketed in the 1970's, selling 200,000 a year at its peak. The record for the fastest mile on a space hopper is currently 13 minutes flat and was set by Ashrita Furman of New York on 19th August, 2010.

In the U.S., if you have a Dish Network (a satellite service provider, to those who may not be aware) Latino Package (has to be a Latino package, for reasons I still don't understand), whether the cheapest or costliest package, you get Playboy TV En Español for FREE. You have to activate it though, it doesn't come by default, but you can activate it via phone or, more preferably, online. At zero additional cost. Yeah I know, in the days of internet porn, who cares, but hey, free porn if you happen to actually have that TV package.

Actually the Space Hopper first appeared in 1959-and was an 049 engine manufactured by LM Cox



....I happen to own four of them....

Maybe so but I am quoting from an article from the Daily Mail who took their information from the book: Toys: 100 Years of Iconic Toys by Stevanne Auerbach, and all quotes here will come from said article-such as:
Buckaroo
The word Buckaroo is thought to come from the Spanish word 'vaquero' which refers to a man who takes care of cattle (although associations with the "bucking" of a horse have also been made) The term is similar to "cowboy" and is still used in rural areas of the United States.

The word Buckeroo was a euphemism for something entirely different between me and my ex-fiancée!

Default Three Fun Random Bits of Trivia


Back in 2003, former Miss Bulgaria (former then and now), Tania Korabelova, protested against the war in Iraq, outside an American embassy in Bulgaria, wearing nothing but a Bulgarian flag wrapped around her.


Violent J, from the hip-hop/rock duo Insane Clown Posse, was offered a role in the 2001 film Prison Song (starring Q-Tip, Mary J. Blige and Fat Joe), but he declined because the producers wanted him to play a racist Southern prison guard. He said he would do it, if they allowed him to play the racist prison guard WITH his trademark face paint. They, of course, said no, and so he too said no. He said had it not been a racist character, he would have taken the role and done it without the makeup. Admitting it may have led to more future acting roles.


In the early 2000s, a wing eatery calling itself The Chicken Depot opened in North Bergen, NJ. They stole the text, logo, and design of The Home Depot, the home improvement company. Shortly thereafter they got sued by the company and they were forced to change the logo and textual design. Apparently, many customers, VERY familiar with the Home Depot logo, were confusing the chicken eatery with the home improvement store.

Martin Fry of ABC's guitarist is playing in a video(I think it was When Smokey Sings) it has the Coco Chanel double C logo on it. Somehow Karl Lagerfeld found out and put out a 'cease & desist' order to the group which meant that when the video went out the logo was deliberately blurred out electronically. I am sure that it was featured in another video of theirs and not blurred. And whilst on this subject their Poison Arrow video features Julia Gale who is Peter Duncan's sister(Gale is their real surname) and Duncan has been an actor, a Blue Peter presenter and the Chief Scout.

I've just listened to an old vinyl record album of 'The Dreamstone' from 1990.
This was a kids' tv series(animated) about good triumphing over evil, in this case the evil was an underworld dragon called Zordrak who was constantly thwarted by a noop called Rufus, another called Amberley and a wizard with the mythical Dreamstone which transmitted good dreams to the world each night. Anyway it was interesting to see the cover and the names mentioned. Firstly all the music and songs were composed and written by Mike Batt(who spent some of his life inside a Womble costume(look that up) and played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Secondly some big names were singing the March of the Urpneys-these were the slightly inept army of Zordrak and featured amongst its ranks. Voiced by Melvin Hayes(Skeleton in Superted) and Anthony Jackson(Ivor the Engine, Rentaghost) [B]On the album their song was sung by Ozzy Osbourne, Frank Bruno and Billy Connolly. Batt did a duet with Bonnie Tyler on another song and Joe Brown(again look him up) and the now disgraced Gary Glitter were the Vile Brothers Mountain Band-perhaps a prelude to what we now know about Glitter. Oh and why did it take 27 years to play it again? No stylus for my stereo system record player and the ones I did have broke! Now I have a portable record player-bliss!
