Hot Dog-Eating Champ Takeru Kobayashi At the prestigious annual Nathan's Hot Dog eating championship in 2001, a skinny, unheralded 23-year-old Japanese contestant named Takeru Kobayashi blew away the field by consuming 50 hot dogs (and buns!) in 12 minutes to double the previous world record. Organizers were so unprepared for Kobayashi's spectacular display of gluttony that they had to resort to hand-written signage to keep track of his astonishing total of devoured dogs. To prove it was no fluke, Kobayashi won the next five Fourth of July Coney Island classics too--with totals of 50, 50.5, 44.5, 53.5 and 53.75 hot dogs respectively. In 2007, despite downing a personal best 63 hot dogs, Kobayashi was upset by American upstart Joey Chestnut. Chestnut also get the better of Kobayashi in 2008 and 2009. In 2010, Kobayashi ran afoul of event organizers when he refused to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating, the organization that runs the Coney Island event. Kobayashi was actually arrested as an intruder at the 2010 event when he climbed onstage to congratulate Chestnut on another victory. Kobayashi, nicknamed "The Tsunami" has set several world records in other eating disciplines, such as bratwurst, hamburgers, lobster rolls, and rice balls.

Ramon Santiago - Reverse Triple Crown Any baseball fan worth his salt knows that the rare triple crown is attained when a player leads his league in home runs, runs batted in, and batting average in the same season. No one has accomplished the feat in either major league since 1967 when Carl Yastrzemski did it for the Boston Red Sox. However, Ramon Santiago of the pitiful 2003 Detroit Tigers captured the "reverse triple crown." Huh? A reverse triple crown is when a player finishes last in all three categories (and has enough at-bats to qualify for the batting title). Santiago, the Tigers' shortstop in 2003, had two home runs, 29 runs batted in and batted just .225. Those 2003 Tigers finished with a horrendous 43-119 record to set an AL record for most losses in a season. On the brighter side, Santiago led the major leagues that same season with 18 sacrifice bunts.

1956 USSR-Hungary Water Polo Match At the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, Australia, a water polo match between Hungary and the USSR turned into a blood bath--literally. The match, on December 6, was set against the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and saw Hungary defeat the USSR 4–0. The lasting image of the match was Hungarian star Ervin Zádor emerging from the pool with a large, bloody gash under his eye. He had been punched by Soviet player Valentin Prokopov. Tensions were already high between the Hungarian and Soviet water polo teams, as the Soviets had taken advantage of their political control of Hungary to study and copy the training methods and tactics of the 1952 Olympic champion Hungarians. On October 23, 1956, a demonstration by university students escalated into an uprising against the Soviet puppet government in Budapest. For a few days it appeared Hungary might free itself from the USSR's grasp. On November 1, however, Soviet tanks began rolling into Hungary. From November 4 to November 10 forces began suppressing the uprising with air strikes, artillery bombardments, and tank/infantry actions. The Hungarian water polo team was in a mountain training camp above Budapest. They were able to hear the gunfire and see smoke rising. With the Summer Olympics in Melbourne a month away, they were moved to Czechoslovakia to avoid being caught in the revolution. The players only learned the full extent of the uprising and the subsequent crackdown after arriving in Australia. By the start of the Olympics, the uprising had been suppressed. Many players saw the Olympics as a way to salvage national pride. "We felt we were playing not just for ourselves but for our whole country" said Zádor after the match. The "Blood In The Water" match was played in front of a partisan crowd bolstered with expatriate Hungarians as well as Australians and Americans who detested their Cold War Soviet rivals. Prior to the match, the Hungarians had evolved a strategy to taunt the Russians, whose language they had been forced to study in school. In the words of Zádor: "We had decided to try and make the Russians angry to distract them." From the opening whistle, kicks and punches were freely exchanged. At one point the Hungarian captain, Dezső Gyarmati, punched a Russian; it was caught on film. Meanwhile, Zádor scored two goals for the Hungarians, much to the delight of the crowd. With Hungary leading 4–0 in the final minutes, Zádor was marking Valentin Prokopov with whom he'd had verbal exchanges. Prokopov struck him, causing a gash to open. The blood comining with the water in the pool made it look like Zádor was bleeding to death. As he left the pool, his bleeding incited the crowd into a frenzy. Angry spectators jumped onto the concourse beside the water, shook their fists, shouted abuse, and spat at the Soviets. To avoid a riot, police entered the arena with one minute to go, declared the game over, and shepherded the crowd away. Pictures of Zádor's injuries were published around the world, leading to the "Blood in the Water" name, although reports that the water actually turned red were an exaggeration. Zádor said his only thought was whether he would be able to play the next match. Hungary went on to beat Yugoslavia 2–1 in the final to win their fourth Olympic gold medal. Zádor missed the match. After the event was completed, he and some of his teammates sought asylum in the West, rather than live in Hungary under a puppet pro-Soviet regime.

THE Rotary Phone The rotary dial with holes was first introduced in 1904 but did not enter service in the Bell System until 1919 Have you ever watched an old television show and seen a rotary style telephone sitting on the table? Ever wonder how to use that phone? Well today is your lucky day! You are about to find out how to do just that. 1Remove the handset from the cradle.(The cradle is where the phone rests when not in use) 2Place the handset to your ear and listen for a dial tone. 3Use the index finger from your other hand to dial the first number. Do so by placing the finger in the dial's hole that is above the number you wish to dial. The dial, is also called the finger wheel, is circular. 4Rotate the dial clockwise until your finger touches the metal stop. Remove your finger from the opening to allow the dial to rotate to its original position. 5Find your second number and repeat step three and four. Do this for the remaining numbers. When you are finished with your conversation, simply place the phone back on the cradle. NOTE, If you have long or decorated fingernails, and are concerned that dialing might damage them, you may use the eraser end of a pencil to dial.

Shell No Pest Strips Do you remember the ‘Shell Pest Strips’? These were insecticide laced things you hung in your home and thought were safe. Turns out they caused cancer in humans so the FDA recalled them in 1979.

 Scary Stories 3 More Tales To Chill Your Bones 1991 Yes I know part is the 80's but its in the 90s for the fact that Scary Stories 3 : More Tales To Chill Your Bones came out in 1991 and started me on getting this series in the 90's. Some kids can relate to this and did the same? You know it peaked your interest and you had to get the whole set! LOL Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark is a series of three children's books written by Alvin Schwartz and illustrated by Stephen Gammell. The scary stories of the title are pieces of folklore and urban legends collected and adapted by Schwartz. The titles of the books are Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (1981), More Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark (1984), and Scary Stories 3 : More Tales To Chill Your Bones (1991). The first volume was published in 1981, and the books have subsequently been collected in both a box set and a single volume. There is also an audiobook version of each book, read by George S. Irving. Reprints of the books with new illustrations by Brett Helquist have been announced. This series is listed as being the most challenged series of books from 1990–1999 and seventh most challenged from 2000-2009by the American Library Association for its violence. The surreal and nightmarish illustrations contained within are also a frequently challenged component of the original books. To celebrate the books' 30th anniversary, Scholastic re-released them with new illustrations from Brett Helquist, the illustrator of A Series of Unfortunate Events. This has come under criticism from fans of Gammell's illustrations, citing that they are not as effective or as scary as the originals.
