Things I learned lately - 24 June

  • What Sigourney Weaver got paid for the movie Alien: $35,000. For Aliens: $1,000,000. Alien 3: $4,000,000. Alien Resurrection: $11,000,000.
  • The glass delusion is an external manifestation of a psychiatric disorder in the 15th to 17th centuries. People feared that they were made of glass and likely to shatter. One famous sufferer was King Charles VI of France who refused to allow people to touch him.
  • RC Cola is the top-selling cola brand in the Philippines.
  • Amazon produces and shows pilots for any new shows it's contemplating. Netflix does not.
  • Burger King introduced a grilled hot dog to its menu in Feb 2016, but only in the US.
  • HBO streaming only signed up 800,000 customers. Solution: partner with Netflix, raise the price to $10 even and watch the money and customers come rolling in.
