Adam's Fun Facts: Star Wars, Animal Crackers, Popcorn & More!

5 Fun Facts From Adam!

July 5, 2019

Happy 5th of July!  Hope you got that fireowrk smell out of your clothes!  Here are YOUR Fun Facts:

1. Canada is the only country to host an Olympics and not win a gold medal, when it hosted the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal. Canadian athletes only won five silvers and six bronzes.

2. Popcorn at a movie theater costs more per ounce than filet Mignon.

3. Every mammal has about one billion heartbeats in their lifetime, regardless of their lifespan. So a mammal that lives a shorter time, like a dog, has a heart that beats faster than a mammal that lives a longer time, like a whale.

4. There were such low expectations for "Star Wars" that it was only on 42 screens nationwide for its opening weekend.

5. There have been 37 different animals in the original brand of Animal Crackers since 1903. The most recent addition was the koala in 2002.
