Dumb and Dumber
Director: Peter Farrelly, Bobby Farrelly
Stars: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels, Lauren Holly
There are NOT 3 O’Connell brothers just 2, Jerry and Charlie. I gotta say, he looks real different in this and that may be why I thought there was 3….
The thing I knew him from before Office Space was MADtv.
Bubble Wrap Jumpsuit
So I decided to look up the bubble wrap jumpsuit and they are a lot cheaper than they used to be. I found listings ranging from $20-$60. But there is a problem with all the suits I found (note I didn’t look that hard)
1. They are all 2 piece suits instead of a one piece jumpsuit
2. They are all uses the bigger bubble bubble wrap instead of the smaller bubbles. So it doesn’t have the same je ne sais quoi
He doesn’t need to have a last name for people to know who you’re talking about, like Cher and Madonna, but he does have one Lanzoni. I looked him up as I was saying I don’t know why he is as famous as he is/was for just being a model for romance novel covers but he was a film star and model in Italy before taking on North America and then he just kept doing what he did and there you go. If you look at his filmography he mainly played himself and everyone seemed to enjoy these little nods that were generally entertaining.
For me he will always be the guy from the book covers
And the guy in these commercials
Animated Cat Lady
This is something I should have picked up but didn’t during my watch of the movie. Chester and Jesse go to the Kitty Kat Club, a cat themed strip joint where is you may attention, you can see it has a a sexy cat lady on its sign. This cat lady looks very similar to the animated cat and I am pretty sure that is the connection.
Uranus does smell like farts
This was apparently confirmed in 2018 when scientist were able to identify sonsentrations of hydrogen sulphide on Uranus which is the same gas that causes the foul stench profuced by flatulence and rotting eggs. Ew. You can find more in this article from CBC

Spock in TNG
Leonard Nimoy once again became Spock for 2 episodes in the 5th season of Star Trek the Next Generation. In the 2 episodes, “Unification” 1 & 2, Spcok tries to broker peace with the Romulans.
Facts about Ostriches
This is where I got those facts.
Also, I think cuz I serched this I keep getting random bird/ostrich things in my feed now. But here are some additional things I learned
1. One ostrich egg is the equivalent of approximately 24 chicken eggs
2. Ostriches lay about 15 – 20 eggs a year
3. They do not lay eggs all year like chickens but have a specific breeding season
4. There are ostrich farms where they harvest both meat and eggs
The Shoebill Stork
This is a very intimidating bird.
