I had the first
pint of Guinness served at the Guinness brewery (in Dublin) of the new millennium. Total accident too.

Didn't realise who he was
When I was living in LA I was sitting outside of a bar on Sunset with some mates (Saddle Ranch Chop House if you know it) when the guy on the next table starts talking to me. He'd noticed my English accent and struck up conversation. I'd been talking to him for 15 minutes before I realised it was Goldie (DJ & Bond villain). He was a really nice bloke and even invited us to see him play at the Viper Room.
Also sitting with him was Cerys Matthews (Welsh band, forgot the name) who didn't say a word and struck me as a miserable bint. Maybe she was just having a bad day.

Other encounters:
Sat across the aisle from John Goodman on a plane. He spent the entire flight knocking back vodka.
Shared a plane with Eminem - very short guy, flight attendents were going nuts.
Saw Steve Tyler (Aerosmith) shooping in Boston.
Met Clint and the guys from PWEI, they seemed like very nice chaps.

Nursery Rhymes
Ring-a-ring-a-roses has already been linked to the bubonic plague on here (although some dispute that), so I thought I'd add some other nursery rhyme 'facts'.

Jack & Jill Went Up the Hill has been linked to the beheading of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, and also to pre-marital sex.

Pop Goes the Weasel refers to blowing your money (on food - half a pound of tuppeny rice, and drink - in and out the Eagle) and having to pawn your sunday best (weasal and stoat - coat).

Both Three Blind Mice and Mary Mary Quite Contrary refer to Mary I.

Who Killed Cock Robin refers to Robin Hood.

Baseball World Series
The idea that the World Series was named because it was sponsored by the World newspaper is a myth. It was named the World Series because it was considered a world championship (hey, it has Canadians in it!)

Useless fact: Grover from Sesame Street and Miss Piggy have the same voice.
