Mr. Smarty Pants Knows

Vivienne Westwood, a major fashion contributor to the 1970s punk scene, once said, "Fashion is about eventually being naked."

Wisconsin produces the most cranberries of any state; the state is projected to yield 215,000 tons in 2011 alone.

Earlier this year, a Public Religion Research Institute survey said about half of Americans felt uncomfortable seeing women in burqas or a group of men praying to Allah in an airport. A concurrent Pew Research Center poll said 48% of Muslim Americans think other Americans are generally friendly to them.

Ronald Reagan liked Bart Simpson.

A June 1918 article from the trade publication Earnshaw's Infants' Department said the generally accepted rule is pink for boys and blue for girls because pink, being a stronger color, is more suitable for a boy, while blue, which is more delicate, is prettier for a girl.
