What song by Beck was almost not released because he hated it so much?Why do we call movie previews, “trailers”? What are the only 2 countries in the world that have no celebration of their independence? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Beck thought the song “Loser” was mediocre and he didn’t want it released as a single. But his record label did it anyway, and it went on to be his biggest hit by far. (Wikipedia)

2. Before David Letterman got his late night show, he had a morning show on NBC called “The David Letterman Show”. It lasted from June 23rd to October 24th, 1980. (Wikipedia)

3. Movie previews are called “trailers” because they were originally shown at the END of movies. The name stuck even once they started showing them first. (The Straight Dope)

4. Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting “The Starry Night” is actually the view from the room of his asylum in France. (Wikipedia)

5. There are only two countries in the world that don’t have a holiday celebrating their independence day or the day they became a nation: The U.K. and Denmark. (Wikipedia)
