The term "deadline" comes from the American Civil War. Prisoners would have lines drawn around them in the dirt, and if they crossed this line then they would be executed by their guards. Both prisoners and guards soon took to calling this line the "dead line".

In August 2013, a Michigan man Darryl See was released from intensive care after being hit head-on by a high speed Amtrak train. Darryl See, who was listening to music and didn’t hear the train’s repeated horn-blows, was reportedly thrown 20 feet from the track by the train that was traveling at 110mph!

Idea Did you know?
In 1995, strange 7-foot circular patterns were discovered on the ocean’s floor. Deemed the ‘crop circles of the sea’, these mysterious patterns went unanswered for until early 2011 when it was discovered that 5-inch long male puffer fish were the culprits. After studying these animals, scientists have discovered that the meticulous creation and upkeep of these patterns by the puffer fish serve as an attraction for the opposite sex as well as a nest for the female puffer fish’s eggs.

Idea Did you know?
American photographer Harry Whittier Frees dressed his cats – as well as the cats and dogs of his neighbors – in small, people-like clothing and gave them props before photographing them. The black-and-white pictures of these cats and dogs were often given witty captions by Frees, making them the (unknowingly) first LOLcat memes!

During an August 17, 1957, baseball game, Richie Ashburn hit a foul ball into the stands that struck spectator Alice Roth, wife of Philadelphia Bulletin sports editor Earl Roth, breaking her nose. When play resumed, Ashburn fouled off another ball that struck her while she was being carried off in a stretcher.

In 1995, the winner of the $1 million Monopoly game piece at McDonald’s sent it to St. Jude’s Children's Hospital in an anonymous letter. Turns out he had scammed to get the pieces. McDonalds still paid St. Jude's the $1 million in $50,000 installments.
