April 18 1906  The Day the Hills Trembled At 5:12 a.m. on April 18, 1906 The San Francisco Bay area erupted as the earth unleashed her fury. The violent shocks punctuated the strong shaking which lasting nearly 60 seconds. The quake was felt from southern Oregon to south of Los Angeles and inland as far as central Nevada. The ground had ripped open for more than 270 miles along a great fault - the San Andreas rift. The quake lasted only a minute but caused the one of the worst natural disaster in the nation's history. The damages were estimated at $400,000,000 in 1906 dollars, That would translate to nearly 10 billion dollars today. Photos The Library of Congress J. B.

Band On The Run Slated for the The Beatles 15th album but shelved when the band broke up. Written by Paul and later released with his band Wings. The two are very similar.

Melba - Forgotten 1986 Sitcom Flop Singer Melba Moore was the star of a barely remembered 1986 CBS sitcom aptly tiled Melba. Moore played Melba Patterson, a recently divorced black mother. Along with running the Visitors' Center in Manhattan, Patterson was trying to raise a spunky nine-year-old daughter (Tracy) with the help of her mother (Rose) and her white "sister" (Susan Slater)--a childhood pal who had been raised by Melba's mom. Before it had even aired once, critics who had seen sneak previews of Melba strongly took a dislike to the show. Nevertheless, Melba's debut occurred at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28, 1986: the same day of the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster. Apparently few people were in the mood to watch a new sitcom later that night: Melba's ratings were the worst in CBS' prime-time history. It got a 13% viewer share--an awful number in the days of just three networks and limited competition from cable stations. Despite the Challenger tragedy, The A-Team (NBC) and Who's The Boss? (ABC) still managed to pull in respectable ratings opposite Melba. Panicky network executives swiftly yanked Melba from CBS' lineup. However, five other Melba episodes aired in August and September on Saturday nights when ABC and NBC were showing reruns. The ratings for Melba were still unacceptably low, so CBS killed it for a second and final time. Here's what the show's opening montage looked like.

Come Alive Pepsi Ad Campaign In the early 1970s, Pepsi-Cola introduced a new catch phrase to promote its product: 'Come Alive!' Not bad...until it was translated into some foreign-language markets. In Germany the phrase meant, 'Rise from the grave with Pepsi!' In China the phrase meant, 'Pepsi brings back your ancestors!'

NFL Champs Vs. College All-Stars 1934-1976 The Chicago Charities College All-Star Game was a preseason football tilt played annually (except 1974) from 1934 to 1976 between the National Football League champions and a team of star college seniors from the previous year. (There was one exception: The 1935 game involved the 1934 runner-up Chicago Bears instead of the champion New York Giants.) The game originally was a benefit for Chicago-area charities. Except for the 1943 and 1944 games which were held at Northwestern University, the game was always played at Soldier Field in Chicago. The first game, played before a crowd of 79,432 on August 31, 1934, was a scoreless tie between the all-stars and the Chicago Bears. The following year, a game that included future president Gerald Ford, the Bears won, 5-0. The first all-star win was in 1937 for a squad that featured Sammy Baugh. In the 1940s the games were competitive affairs that attracted large crowds to Soldier Field. But as the talent level of pro football improved, the all-stars had diminishing success. The last all-star win came in 1963, when a team coached by legendary quarterback Otto Graham beat the Green Bay Packers 20-17. By the 1970s, crowds for the event were dwindling. In addition, NFL coaches were reluctant to part with their new draftees (who would miss part of training camp) for a meaningless exhibition in which the players might be injured. A players' strike forced the cancellation of the 1974 game. The last game took place in a torrential downpour on July 23, 1976. Despite featuring stars such as Chuck Muncie, Mike Pruitt, Lee Roy Selmon and Jackie Slater, the collegians were hopelessly outclassed by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pittsburgh was leading 24-0 late in the third quarter when play was suspended due to the awful weather conditions. The game was not restarted. Chicago Tribune Charities Inc., the sponsor of the game, elected not to bring it back for 1977. A program from the 1941 game is shown here. Overall, the NFL teams won 31 of the 42 games. The all-stars won nine. Two games ended in ties.

Le Petomane - Professional Farter Le Pétomane was the stage name of French flatulist (professional farter) Joseph Pujol. He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles which enabled him to fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, 'to fart' with the -mane, '-maniac' suffix, which translates to 'fartomaniac'. Pujol was 'gifted' in the sense that he was able to inhale water or air into his rectum and then control the release of it using his sphincter muscles (avoiding any associated odor). When Pujol joined the army he told his fellow soldiers about his special ability, and repeated it for their amusement, sucking up water from a pan into his rectum and then projecting it through his anus up to several yards. He then found that he could suck in air as well. Although a baker by profession, Pujol would entertain his customers by imitating musical instruments, and claim to be playing them behind the counter. Pujol decided to try his talent on the stage, and debuted in Marseille in 1887. After his act proved successful, he proceeded to Paris, where he took the act to the Moulin Rouge in 1892. Some of the highlights of his stage act involved sound effects of cannon fire and thunderstorms, as well as playing 'O Sole Mio' and 'La Marseillaise' on an ocarina through a rubber tube in his anus. He could also blow out a candle from several yards away. He performed before various VIPs, including the Prince of Wales, King Leopold II of the Belgians, and Sigmund Freud. In 1894, as a star attraction at the Moulin Rouge, Pujol was earning 20,000 francs per performance. In the following decade Pujol tried to 'refine' his acts to make them 'gentler.' One of his favorite numbers was a rhyme about a farm which he himself composed--and which he punctuated with the usual anal renditions of the animals' sounds. The climax of Pujol's act was his farting impression of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.
