Radio Contest Death On January 12, 2007, Jennifer Strange, a 28-year-old mother of three from Rancho Cordova, California pictured in the photo below, was found dead in her home by her mother. It was only a few hours after she had tried to win a Nintendo Wii game console on a radio contest. KDND 107.9 FM's Hold Your Wee for a Wii contest involved drinking large quantities of water without urinating. The cause of Strange's death was determined to be a rare condition known as water intoxication--basically when too much water is consumed by a human being. Civil charges against the radio station were filed by Jennifer's family. They were eventually awarded $16.5 million in the ensuing wrongful death lawsuit. Everyone connected with the contest was fired from KDND. Oh, yeah...Strange did not win the contest.

Dr Who And The Daleks Remix This TV series started in 1963 and continued up until 1990 when the plug was pulled by the BBC. Later revived it as a series in 2005. It once again grabbed a lions share of the TV ratings. All I've got to say is, long may it continue. From a life long fan.

Brownie Starflash For Steve One of the most popular Brownie models was the Brownie 127, millions of which were sold between 1952 and 1967. The Brownie 127 was a simple bakelite camera for 127 film which featured a simple meniscus lens and a curved film (and I thought MENISCUS was TORN CARTILAGE!!!! LOL

Featured Member- Lava1964 I was born in a small Canadian city in 1964. I am unmarried. Miss Right has not yet come along. I'm beginning to think she never will. As a kid, I loved acquiring knowledge on a variety of topics, hence my love of trivia. My father got me interested in history by making me watch documentaries when I was eight years old. I am truly grateful he did this. I developed my own passion for sports history. My favorite sports are baseball, boxing, tennis, hockey, football, and soccer. Baseball is far and away my favorite. I live and die with the exploits of the Boston Red Sox. (I was a Red Sox fan long before it became fashionable.) I played fastpitch softball as a kid when that was a popular pastime in Canada. I was a second baseman: Good glove, weak arm, decent contact hitter, not much power. I normally batted second. I have been a softball umpire since 1978. Last time I counted, I had worked over 2,300 games. I've always loved words and the English language. Its possibilities are truly limitless. I modestly say I am a writer of some repute. I began writing pieces for sports encyclopedias at age 19 and really haven't stopped penning sports articles since then. I used to write a weekly sports nostalgia column for a local newspaper. I allegedly had half a million readers at one time. (My column ran for five years before a dim-witted editor took over the sports department and dismissed all the freelance columnists and replaced them with hand-picked toadies. Accordingly, I have put a curse on him and his family. I've had three books on baseball history published. All have received kind reviews. I still write the occasional piece for nostalgia publications. If anyone is really interested in my stuff, I sell collections of my columns on demand. My books are available through mail order from my publisher in North Carolina. I am a tournament Scrabble player and official. I have an expert rating (which I am quite proud of) and I'm usually ranked in the top 40 in Canada. I help run a local club and local tourneys, and, for some reason, I am much in demand to officiate and organize tournaments in many places. Scrabble has allowed me to travel to Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, New Orleans, and this summer...Orlando. It's nice work if you can get it. It must be my aptitude for organization which I acquired from both my parents. Scrabble is quite a diverse and odd subculture. Nevertheless, my best friends are Scrabble players. The game helps me retain what is left of my sanity. Along those same lines, I enjoy all competitive endeavors. I always play to win. This is why I love game shows too, I suppose. Occasionally I do real jobs too. I've been a private tutor since 1994. My students think I'm brilliant. I always try to live up to their expectations. I think I have a good sense of humor. It's a hybrid of American and British mirth. I especially love puns. I am cuddly.

WORLDS FIRST RONALD MCDONALD Who was the world's first Ronald McDonald? In October 1963 Ronald McDonald made his television debut in a costume far from the one we all know and love. The world's first Ronald McDonald was played by Willard Scott who had several years experience of being a clown starring as Bozo the Clown. It may be speculation, but some give Willard Scott credit for creating Ronald McDonald. Not only was 1963 a good year for Ronald, McDonalds also sold it's billionth hamburger.

Whatever Happened to Remember the Sprint Guy? Until September of 2005, he was the spokescharacter for Sprint wireless phones, the guy who solved pesky cellular problems wherever and whenever they arose. He was ubiquitous, appearing in 155 commercials over a period of six years. More than that, he was an icon of the Internet age, the Mr. Whipple, the Joe Isuzu, the Madge or Mikey of his time. One day The Sprint Guy was gone, dropped like a bad connection. He went away quietly, without making a scene, which is just how you'd expect him to go. He was, it seems, a victim of corporate politics. Sprint bought Nextel for $35 billion, and as a result, things changed. Sprint Guy was great when Sprint was selling its services primarily to household customers. But Nextel began focusing on the business market, and so the company decided they needed a new image. Spring Guy was put on 'hiatus' for an indefinite period.
