The Ultimate Trivia Thread

The purpose of this thread is simple: To eventually compile a massive collection of trivia. The rules for this thread are as follows:

- Each poster provides exactly one piece of trivia in a post.

- The trivia may concern any topic except for those that are appropriate for the Politics and Religion Forum.

- After someone has made a post, he/she must wait until someone else has posted before he/she can post again. This is to encourage more people to post.

I hope you find this thread interesting.

I'll start with the following:

Mel Blanc was the original voice of Woody Woodpecker.

Addition to original rules:

Since many people, myself included, enjoy responding to previous trivia posts to add even more related information, I'm adding the following to the thread rules:

- You can add to the trivia of a previous post by quoting the original and adding information as long as you also include a new piece of unrelated trivia.

Is that true? David Niven was James Bond in that film as I recall (and a quick Google confirms).

I'm relying on my memory (and it was a long time ago (but those were fun times)) but didn't Woody Allen play James Bond's son -- also named James Bond?

Yes, Woody Allen played James Bond (called Jimmy Bond), an incompetent agent who was (per IMDB) James Bond's nephew. Of course, due to an order of Sir James Bond (the original James Bond played by David Niven), every agent in the movie was named "James Bond 007" including the women (to confuse the enemy).

The maximum playing time of a Compact Disc that conforms to the Red Book Standard is 79.8 minutes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Boo...CD_standard%29).

So, no, then. Woody Allen played a character called Jimmy, not James, Bond.

The jersey that the leader of the Tour de France wears is yellow because that was the colour paper that its first sponsor, L'Auto magazine, was printed on.
