1. The first and last people to die building the Hoover Dam were a father and son, exactly 13 years apart. The dad drowned on December 20th, 1922 and his son fell off a tower on December 20th, 1935. (Wikipedia)

2. The first words Mickey Mouse ever said were “hot dogs,” in the animated short movie “The Karnival Kid” in 1929. (Wikipedia)

3. When “Titanic” was filming, James Cameron and about 50 other cast and crew members were hospitalized after someone spiked the lobster chowder they were eating with PCP. The person who did it was never caught. (Entertainment Weekly)
