When Blind Willie McTell died, he accidentally ended up being buried beneath the gravestone bearing the name of his cousin Eddie McTear, who was still alive.

Tinker Bell was not modeled on Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jean Mortenson), but on an actress named Margaret Kerry (born Peggy Lynch).

Wikipedia wrote:
Kerry answered an audition call during the planning stages of the animated feature film Peter Pan. The audition, supervised by animator Marc Davis, required her to pantomime the motions that would be animated as Tinker Bell. She won the part and spent six months at the Disney Studios on a mostly empty sound stage pantomiming the part. The studios provided props, notably a giant keyhole mounted on a stand as well as a pair of giant scissors, used in the scene where Tinker Bell became trapped in a jewelry box.

In Norse mythology, the universe is represented as an enormous tree called Yggdrasil, that houses the nine worlds, five of which are located in the trunk (From top to bottom: Asgard, Alfheimr, Midgard, Svartalfheimr & Helheimr), and four situated on individual branches (Jötunheimr, Muspelheimr, Niflheimr & Vanaheimr), the latter four being inhabited by giants.

In Buddhist mythology, the center of the world is Mount Sumeru (also known as Mount Meru), a sacred mountain with five peaks.
It's of the shape of an hourglass, 80000 yojanas high and 80000 yojanas deep. It's surrounded by a square ocean which in turn is surrounded by a circle of mountains which is surrounded by another mountain range … (continue it 7 times).

After the 7 layers of mountains and oceans there is the main ocean surrounding it all.

The known world is an island in the southern sphere of the main ocean.

There is now so much water stored in dams created by human beings that the axis of the Earths tilt has been affected!

Istanbul has a vending machine that releases food and water for the city's stray dogs in exchange for recycled plastic bottles.
