Wise World of Wellen presented by Salem Eye Clinic
1. The first movie with a CGI character as the lead role was “Casper” in 1995.
2. The reason karate belts go white, yellow, orange, green, blue, purple, brown, red, black is because fighters used to only be able to afford one belt . . . so they would keep dying it darker and darker as they progressed.
3. Ikea uses 1% of all the wood in the world to make furniture. Yes, even particleboard still needs some real wood, and they use a giant amount of it.
4. Westerns were once so popular that in 1959, there were 30 prime time Westerns on TV . . . on just three channels.
5. Violet was one of the original M&M’s colors when they were introduced in 1941. They lasted less than 10 years before they were replaced by the tan color. And those were eventually replaced by blue.
