the novel lord of the rings was not made into a movie long ago as the chaps in hollywood felt the first book in this series was poor. the executives at the studios behind it said.

LORD OF THE FLIES

failed to make a big impression at the box office.as such we whre not interested in taking the franchise further.

Elvis actually hated rock and roll. He was often quoted as saying: “I hate rock n’ roll, give me techno any day…Momma”.

Film actor Johnny Depp is not really selective about the roles he plays, and takes any job he is offered. In reality, he is only ever given parts in cult films made by maverick directors.

It has often been thought that TV presenter Johnny Morris voiced all of the animals on BBC Television’s “Animal Magic”. This was not actually the case as the animals were all Equity cardholders.

Every piece of art ever shown in the Gallery on Vision-On was actually drawn by Sandy Toksvig, whilst dancing naked to Showaddywaddy.

Useless trivia:

BRASS MONKEY

In the middle ages, ships were heavily laden with food, water and cargo. Obviously, it was all stowed below decks. However, to be sure that the loading was even and didn't cause the ship to list to one side, an "n" shaped set of brass balls were hung from a spike on the deck, through two holes in the deck floor, so that they could be seen below. This created a kind of artificial horizon for the men below; if the balls shifted one way then they could tell they were causing the ship to list.

However, when it got very cold the wood in the deck would contract and snap off the balls. Hence the expression, "cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey."

Lock up your spoons!

Ronan Keating, ex member of boy band “Boyzone” is a trained veterinarian. Fans often bring their pets to his concerts so that he can check that they are alright.

Matt Fact:  If you walked to the shops really, really slowly and then ran back as fast as you could, you'd meet yourself on the way.
Pffft...

Matt Fact:  If you gave your earlier self the shopping and told him not to bother going to the shops because you've already done it- the universe would grind to a halt due to the nature of this hugely improbable paradox.  Absolute true fact.
