1. The green computer code in “The Matrix” is actually a sushi recipe. (Stuff)

2. Florida passed a law in 1989 that banned bars from holding dwarf throwing contests and the law held up when a state representative tried to get it repealed in 2011. (Florida State Legislature)

3. Teddy bears, which were named after Teddy Roosevelt, were a huge hit. So a toy company tried to recreate the formula with the next president, William Howard Taft, and sold stuffed possums called Billy Possums.  They did not catch on. (Fruitless Pursuits)

4. A golden retriever named Buddy played Comet on “Full House” and ALSO played Air Bud in the first “Air Bud” movie. He died in 1998 at age 9. (Wikipedia)
