    Everyone knows Hawaii was the 50th state to join the union (1959) and Alaska the 49th (1957), but who was the 48th ... the one to complete the "lower 48"?

    Arizona in 1912.

    There is a correct and incorrect way to tie your shoes.
    If your laces come untied several times a day- this will probably be the best 3 minutes of your day.



    ..Pointless (to those who don't find their shoe laces constantly becoming untied), and random.

    Oh, I have many, which could explain why I'm dominant on Trivia Crack:

    The first season of Miami Vice was nominated for fifteen Emmys

    "Every Breath You Take" by The Police was the number one single for eight weeks on the Billboard charts in 1983

    Cheers ranked dead last in the Nielsen ratings in it's first season (1982)

    The film 'Jaws' was released on June 20, 1975

    The 1981 New England Patriots went 4-0 in the preseason, then 2-14 in the regular season

    Darrell Waltrip won the Daytona 500 in 1989

    Mork & Mindy was a spinoff of Happy Days

    In early drafts of Star Wars, Luke's last name was Starkiller

    I remember the name of the underage Filipino kid that got away from Jeffrey Dahmer despite being drugged and having holes drilled in his head, only to be returned to Dahmer by the police, who believed they were just a couple of drunk Milwaukee homos having a lovers' spat.
