What does “Sahara” mean? What does Mr Mojo Risin mean? How many people have won an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony)? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. “Sahara” means “desert” in Arabic which means the Sahara Desert is the “desert desert.” (Wikipedia)

2. There have been 12 people who’ve won the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) but only one person who’s been nominated for all four but not won a single one. Sorry, Lynn Redgrave. (Wikipedia)

3. Mr Mojo Risin is an anagram for Jim Morris name.  He believed or at least stated he was going to be reincarnated and come back as Mr. Mojo Risin. (M100Group)

4. In the 1920s and ’30s, people used to have cages built to hang out their apartment windows and would put their BABIES in them.  They believed it helped keep them healthy and growing. (Treehugger)

5. When Sega was marketing “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” for the Sega Genesis in 1992, they decided to build hype by releasing it in the U.S. and Europe on a Tuesday. It stuck and ever since, Tuesday has been the official release date for video games. (The Robot’s Voice)
