First Barbie Doll The Barbie doll was invented in 1959 by Ruth Handler (co-founder of Mattel), whose own daughter was called Barbara. Barbie was introduced to the world at the American Toy Fair in New York City. The doll was intended to be a teenage fashion doll. There has been some controversy over Barbie's figure when it realized that if Barbie was a real person her measurements would be an impossible 36-18-38. The Ken doll was named after Ruth's son. Barbie first had bendable legs in 1965.

Punctuation 101 from the Cast of The Electric Company Many of us are guilty of using run-on sentences in our comments, making it all but impossible for anyone else to figure out what we're really saying. Please make it easier for those of us who are truly interested in what you're trying to say.

Robert Wadlow Worlds Tallest Man The tallest man who ever lived was Robert Wadlow of Alton, Illinois. He was measured at an amazing 8 feet 11 inches just before his death in 1940. His enormous height was due to an overactive pituitary gland. Apparently surgery to correct the problem was deemed too risky. Wadlow's growth showed no signs of ever stopping. At age eight Wadlow stood 6-foot-2 and he was already taller and stronger than his father. At 13, when he was a Boy Scout, he was 7-foot-4. He attended college for one year until his size made such tasks as note-taking impossible. (His hands were too huge to manipulate a pen.) By the time he was 20, Wadlow needed special metal braces to support his legs. They inadvertently caused his death at age 21: One brace chafed Wadlow's leg causing an infection that led to a fatal case of blood poisoning. Wadlow's coffin was encased in cement to prevent grave robbers from stealing it.

The Original Mission Impossible IMO, one season of this series was worth more than all of Tom Cruise's later films put together. Each episode of 'Mission: Impossible', which ran from 1966-1973, featured a unique opening. Clips from the upcoming show were edited together in the fast-paced style of Lalo Schrifrin's brilliant theme song and played before the opening credits. The episodes featured here are from the second and third seasons. You'll find some interesting MI trivia in the Comments Section...

Charmed Impossible Even though this violates my prime directive of not acknowledging anything created after 1977...I had to do this little opening credits mash up.

Krakatoa Erupts 1883 The beginning of the amazing events at Krakatoa in 1883 date to May 20 when there were initial rumblings and venting from the volcano, which had been dormant for about 200 years. Over the next three months, there were regular small blasts from Krakatoa out of three vents. On August 11, ash started spewing from the small mountain. Eruptions got progressively stronger until August 26, when the catastrophe began. At noon, the volcano sent an ash cloud 20 miles into the air and tremors triggered several tsunamis. This turned out to be just a small indication, however, of what would follow the next day. For four-and-a-half hours beginning at 5:30 a.m. on August 27, there were four major and incredibly powerful eruptions. The last of these made the loudest sound ever recorded on the planet. It could be heard as far away as central Australia and the island of Rodrigues, 3,000 miles from Krakatoa. The air waves created by the eruption were detected at points all over the earth. The eruption had devastating effects on the islands near Krakatoa. It set off tremendous tsunamis that overwhelmed hundreds of villages on the coasts of Java and Sumatra. Water pushed inland several miles in certain places, with coral blocks weighing 600 tons ending up on shore. At least 35,000 people died, though exact numbers were impossible to determine. The tsunamis traveled nearly around the world--unusually high waves were noticed thousands of miles away the next day. The volcano threw so much rock, ash and pumice into the atmosphere that, in the immediate area, the sun was virtually blocked out for a couple of days. Within a couple of weeks, the sun appeared in strange colors to people all over the world because of all the fine dust in the stratosphere. Over the ensuing three months, the debris high in the sky produced vivid red sunsets. In one case, fire engines in Poughkeepsie, New York, were dispatched when people watching a sunset were sure that they were seeing a fire in the distance. Further, there is speculation that Edvard Munch's 1893 painting "The Scream" depicting a psychedelic sunset may have actually been a faithful rendering of what Munch saw in Norway in the years following the eruption of Krakatoa. The amount of dust in the atmosphere also filtered enough sun and heat that global temperatures fell significantly for a couple of years. Krakatoa was left only a tiny fraction of its former self. However, in the intervening years, a small island, Anak Krakatoa ("Son of Krakatoa") has arisen from the sea. It is growing at an average of five inches every week. This island is receiving a great deal of scientific attention, as it represents a chance to see how island ecosystems are established from scratch.
