20 Facts That Really Cored Our Apples
Who doesn't love a good list of random yet interesting facts? You're in for a treat, because that's exactly what we've got. Matt Damon wrote the first act of “Good Will Hunting” for a playwriting class, and after being assigned to create the first act of a play, he turned in the 40 page script and said, “Look, I might have failed your class, but it is the first act of something longer.” And, over a century before that, Charles Darwin and Joseph Hooker started the world's first terraforming project (in 1850) which has turned Ascension Island - an arid volcanic wasteland - into a self-sustaining ecosystem made completely foreign plants from all over the world. Lastly (and maybe most interestingly), The Powerball drawing on March 30th 2005 produced 110 2nd-prize winners who had all played numbers found inside fortune cookies. Talk about lucky… or maybe not so much considering their winning numbers were obviously meant to be shared!
