Speaking of free time..

Lounging around Wikipedia, I find this piece of information - Professor Hubert Farnsworth of Futurama is named after Philo T. Farnsworth, who invented the modern television. Farnsworth premiered his magical device at the 1939 World's Fair in New York, specifically at General Motors' exhibit, which was called - you guessed it - Futurama.

Now, as a student of Mass Communications, who passes a picture of Philo Farnsworth every day on my way to the computer lab, and who learned who Farnsworth was in first year, you would think I wouldn't need Wikipedia to have deduced that. And you'd be wrong, because I'm apparently retarded.

Cool information, I guess one can learn something different every day.
