What was George Lucas’s original title for “Star Wars”?  Where did we get the term, “Self Destruct”?  What sport has the longest winning streak?  You’ll learn that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. The “Mission: Impossible” TV series invented the term “self-destruct” with their famous mission instructions that would, quote, “self-destruct in five seconds.” (Merriam-Webster)

2. There’s a tiny epoxy shield inside of a soda can otherwise, the soda would make the can corrode in three days. (Wired)

3. The longest winning streak in any professional sport in history is held by a squash player from Pakistan. He won 555 consecutive matches from 1981 to 1986. (Wikipedia)

4. George Lucas’s original title for “Star Wars” was “The Journal of the Whills”. Then he changed it to “Adventures of the Starkiller, as taken from the Journal of the Whills, Saga 1: The Star Wars”. Fortunately he shortened it. (Cracked)
