    The apple flourishes over more parts of the Earth than any other fruit tree. (But it is not mentioned in the Biblical story of Adam and Eve).

    The longest movie was not "24 Hours", by Andy Warhol, but was around 78 hours - a film called "Insomnia". The film consisted of the writer's poetry, as read by him, with splices of a rock and roll band throughout.
