    I just learned how soy sauce is made. Salt, soy beans, water, wheat, and yeast. It takes a year to complete one batch. Some companies repurpose bourbon barrels from distillaries and this adds to the flavor of some soy sauces.

    Jim Lewis and his twin brother Jim Springer were set up for adoption in 1940. They were named Jim by their respective parents. Both of them married twice, first to women named Linda, and then to women both named Betty. Both had childhood dogs whom they named Toy. Both had sons whom they named James.Both served as Sheriff deputies, drank the same beer, preferred the same cigarette, and also drove the same Chevrolet. They met each other at the age of 39...These twins, who were separated at birth, led a very similar life.

    More of a opinion but I will accept it as a fact.

    A shortwave radio station, known as The Buzzer, broadcasts a short, monotonous buzz tone, very rarely interrupted by voice transmissions in Russian. It's active since the late 1970s or early 1980s, and the origins are traced to Russia.
    Two other stations follow a similar format: The Pip and The Squeaky Wheel.
