    Between 17 Oct. and 3 Dec. 1961, Henri Matisse's painting Le Bateau was displayed upside down in an art gallery without anybody noticing



    Or some visitors thought it was upside down but did not want to look like an idiot for pointing it out lol

    Mary Tyler Moore was banished from the Ed Sullivan Show after her first appearance. Her crime was insisting on lip-syncing a song she was to perform; a Sullivan taboo. Now they do it at so called live shows. The artist is on the stage prancing around and the singing you hear is pre-recorded. How times have changed.

    Troy weight has nothing to do with Troy or the Trojans - it is a system of weights for gold and silver, inherited from the French city of Troyes
