I end up on Wikipedia a lot. This is what I looked up during the last 24 hours.
- •I-35 bridge collapseMy son was making a bridge by standing on me and leaning again the edge of the couch. He then fell and said "bridge crash." It made me think of the I-35 collapse. I couldn't remember many details of the crash so I wikied. In case your wondering, it collapsed on Aug. 1, 2007 killing 13.
- •History of the song Take Me Out to the BallgameWe bought my son a Take Me Out to Ballgame book. It came with a CD of Carly Simon singing a weird, longer version of Take Me Out to the Ballgame. We realized we know nothing about the history of the song, turned to Wikipedia, and found out that the version she is singing is actually the original one from 1908. Also found out that Carly Simon recorded the track for Ken Burns' documentary, Baseball.
- •Ellen BurstynI was watching TV and there was a commercial for this week's episode of Moms, which will have Academy Award winner Ell Burstyn as a guest. I did not know who she was, which amazed me since she is an Oscar winner. Turns out she won best actress in 1974 for "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore." She is also just a Grammy away from an EGOT (which is another good wiki).
