today I learned:

  • in 2006, bill murray joined an NYU archaeology team for a dig in the mediterranean because he felt like it.
  • the band the postal service was sent a cease and desist letter by the US postal service for trademark infringement of their name. after negotiations, the USPS allowed the band to use the name in exchange for playing a free show at their national conference.
  • a 17 year-old was ejected from a plane upon its crash and he landed upright in his seat in the middle of the street as the only survivor.
  • mr. rogers, after discovering that his limo driver was stuck waiting in the car, invited him to enter a PBS executive’s house. later, rogers entertained the driver’s family with jazz piano.
