2.  The first black president on film was Sammy Davis Jr. in 1933, in "Rufus Jones For President".  He was only seven years old, and it was about his mother dreaming of him being president.  And apparently it's filled with horrible stereotypes.

3.  Bizzy Bone from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was kidnapped as a child.  His picture was shown at the end of a TV movie called "Adam", about a kidnapped boy.  Thanks to the picture, Bizzy was found and he went back home to Cleveland, Ohio where he met the other members of Bone Thugs in high school.  And the father of the boy in the movie, John Walsh, went on to start "America's Most Wanted".

4.  No NFL team has ever made it to the Super Bowl when it was scheduled to be played in their home stadium.

5.  There are more than 600 species of plants that eat animals.  Venus flytraps are just the most famous ones.
