What was the original plan for the movie "The Crow"?  How did the candy bar Snickers get its name?  Who is responsible for the biggest sale in Walmart history?  All that and more with Adam's Fun Facts:

1.  The biggest sale in Walmart history was made by Shaquille O'Neal.  He spent $70,000 at one store when he was traded from Miami to Phoenix in 2008 and he bought everything for his new house there.

2.  There are two countries in the world that are "double landlocked" meaning they're landlocked, and all the countries AROUND them are too:  Liechtenstein and Uzbekistan.
