  1. Mario in Super Mario Brothers is named for the landlord of the original Nintendo office building.
    I adore this fact and I also adore that it was told to me via Good Job Brain, a podcast some others here also love (and if you don't already, get on board!).
  2. There's a setting on Facebook called 'Legacy Contact' where you designate someone to manage your account in the event of your death.
    Cool, but also morbid and strange.
