Who Shot JR Who shot J.R.? was a mass media-manufactured open question in 1980. In the CBS television series Dallas, the character of J.R. Ewing, played by Larry Hagman, was shot by an unknown assailant in the final scene of its 1979-1980 season, which aired on March 21, 1980 and was entitled A House Divided. Viewers had to wait all summer, and most of the fall due to a Hollywood actors' strike, to learn whether J.R. would survive, and which of his many enemies was responsible. Security was tightened at the Lorimar studios where Dallas was filmed. During the summer of 1980, the question "Who shot J.R.?" was asked in everyday conversations across America and worldwide. T-shirts printed with such references as "Who Shot J.R.?" and "I Shot J.R.!" became common over the summer. Betting parlors worldwide took in massive amounts of money. People were placing bets as to which one of the 10 or so principal characters had actually pulled the trigger that shot J.R. A session of the Turkish parliament was suspended to allow legislators a chance to get home in time to view the Dallas episode. Ultimately, the person who pulled the trigger was revealed to be the character of Kristin Shepard (played by Mary Crosby) in the "Who Done It?" episode which aired on November 21, 1980. Kristin was J.R.'s scheming sister-in-law and mistress, who shot him in a fit of anger.

Name This Man This man spent most of his life in obscurity, and wasn't famous until after he decided to retire. He took his first Social Security check, and with it, invested in himself, and started a business. He sold it eventually, and he's long gone now, but this business brand is still around today.

Taser Incident On September 17, 2007, U.S. Senator John Kerry addressed a Constitution Day forum at the University of Florida in Gainesville, which was organized by the ACCENT Speakers Bureau, an agency of the university's student government. Initially allowed to ask questions after the close of the question period, Andrew Meyer, a 21-year-old fourth-year undergraduate mass communication student, entered into a planned line of questioning and was forcibly pulled away from the microphone. He immediately resisted the campus security and was subsequently arrested by university police. During arrest, the officers asked him repeatedly to stop resisting, but Meyer continued to struggle and scream for help. While six officers held Meyer down[1] one of the officers drive stunned him with a Taser following Meyer's shouted plea to the police, "Don't tase me, bro!" The video became a popular viral hit.

George Peppard Rant This is a very strange game show clip. On Password Plus actor George Peppard goes on an unprovoked rant about networks' game show security policies. I think he's out of line here. What does everyone else think?

Parachutist Disrupts Heavyweight Title Fight I thought I'd seen every weird occurrence at a sports event until I saw this. During a 1993 bout between Evander Holyfield and Riddick Bowe for the world havyweight title at an outdoor venue in Las Vegas, a parachutist attempted to descend into the ring in the seventh round. His chute snagged and he became entangled in the ropes. Reports say Bowe's entourage gave the intruder a pretty good pummeling before security staff intervened.

Poltergeist Theme This film had a lot of bad luck and theories abounded. Great music though by Jerry Goldsmith and one of my favourite horrors. I like how this theme lulls you into a false sense of security.
