  • The Pledge of Allegiance was originally created as a marketing scheme to help sell more flags to public schools.
  • The employees at Disney parks aren’t allowed to point with one finger, because it could be seen as a negative gesture by people from other countries. So they’ll always point with two fingers.
  • Elephants only need two hours of sleep a day, which is the least of any mammal.
  • A kicker won the NFL MVP award in 1982. Mark Moseley won it as a member of the Washington Redskins. He made 20 out of 21 field goals that year, which is . . . good. It must’ve been a REALLY mediocre season though.
  • Pinball machines were illegal in Oakland, California from the 1930s through 2014.
