Tasty bit o'trivia:

The word "nerd" was first coined by Dr. Seuss as the name of one of his creatures.

The more you know.

Hey Olliver, I think I just heard that on a gameshow being hosted by 80s sitcom fixture, Alfonso Ribiero. Is there nothing Carlton cannot teach us?

I seemed to remember that the punch in the gut delivered to Houdini by a Canadian student, was not really what killed him.

According to the Houdini Historical Center of Appleton, Wisconsin, the famous magician, author, psychic debunker, aviator, and movie star died on Halloween Day, 1926, in Detroit, Michigan. The official cause of death was peritonitis caused by appendicitis.

Another misconception has it that Houdini's death resulted from a blow to the stomach:

Houdini was known for his tremendous physical condition, and could withstand blows to the abdomen by tensing his muscles. While performing in Canada, however, he was challenged by a student who didn't give him time to prepare for the punch. Whether or not the blow ruptured his appendix, it did not cause his appendicitis, which is a bacterial infection.
