Tiny Tim started his career singing 1950s doo-wop under the stage name 'Larry Love'.

Computer glitches became known as 'bugs' after a moth shorted out a circuit board in the room-size Mark 1 computer built in 1944 at Harvard University.

Orange Marmalade was first created in 18th Century England when a trader bought bushels of oranges from the Seville, Spain Cathedral. When he got them home, he found them too bitter
to eat, so he tried to make jam from the rinds. In order to make them edible, he had to add
pounds of sugar to the batch to make it palatable...voila...marmalade. The Jardin de los Naranjos
can still be seen at the Seville Cathedral...the birthplace of marmalade.
