by: Adam Alexander
How many members were in the original “Destiny’s Child”?  What 2 HUGE things did the heir of the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company invent?  What country are “trick” birthday candles illegal? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. The mood ring and the Thigh Master were invented by the same man, Joshua Reynolds!  He also happens to be one of the heirs to the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. (Orange County Register)

2. Destiny’s Child was originally called Girl’s Tyme and had six members. (Wikipedia

3. “Trick” birthday candles that reignite after you blow them out have been illegal in Canada since 1977. (Health Canada)  No fun in Canada, apparently!)

4. The first big studio movie to feature the F-word was “MASH” in 1970.  There was a big football game at the climax of the movie and a character named Painless says, quote, “All right, Bud, your [effing] head is coming right off!” (IMDb)

5. Verne Troyer a.k.a. Mini-Me from the “Austin Powers” movies, was raised Amish. (Wikipedia)
