• History points to China as the country of origin of playing cards. A princess in the Tang Dynasty was mentioned in writing as playing the “leaf game” in a record from the year 868. It’s believed that playing cards then spread to India and Persia, followed by Egypt, and to Europe by the end of the 14th century.

FOOD OF THE WEEK: CRACKER JACKS “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,” goes the old favorite song. How much do you know about this popular snack? Follow along as Tidbits focuses on Cracker Jacks, something we’ve been munching since 1896, perhaps the first “junk food!” • It all started with a popcorn stand in Chicago operated by a German immigrant named Fritz Rueckheim. Fritz had been selling popcorn for 25 years before his brother Louis invented a method of separating the kernels of molasses-coated popcorn, which previously stuck together in sticky clumps during manufacturing. The brothers then added peanuts to the mix. • The product was named Cracker Jack after a salesman sampled it and proclaimed, “That’s crackerjack!”, a phrase that, at that time meant “exceptionally fine” or “of excellent quality.” The name was registered as a trademark, and “The More You Eat, the More You Want” became its sales pitch. • A waxed, sealed package was created in 1899 by Henry Eckstein, further enhancing the sales of Cracker Jacks. Sales took a giant leap in 1908 when composers Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer released the hit song “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Ironically neither of the two had ever “root, root, rooted for the home team,” having never attended a ball game. • In 1912, the company began adding small prizes to each box, outdoing their competition who only enclosed coupons in packages that had to be redeemed by mail. In keeping with their baseball popularity, prizes in 1914 included a set of 144 baseball cards, and a 176-card set in

1915. Each card measured 2 ¼” x 3” and included such baseball greats as Honus Wagner, Ty Cobb, “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, Christy Mathewson, and Charles Comiskey. • Collectors who happen to have a Cracker Jack Ty Cobb card in mint condition claim its worth at over $4,400, while a Joe Jackson card in mint condition might fetch twice that much. The Cracker Jack card series are the only ones to feature players from baseball’s short-lived Federal League. • Other early prizes included decoder rings, plastic figurines, booklets, stickers, and temporary tattoos. • In 1916, the package had a new feature, two mascots, Sailor Jack and his dog Bingo. Fritz Rueckheim modeled Jack after his grandson, who passed away shortly afterward at age 8. Fritz loved the image so much that he had it carved on his tombstone. Bingo was based on a stray dog, whose real name was Russell.

Did You Know?

• Temperate climates are the most popular. Even though only 7 percent of the world enjoys a temperate climate, nearly half of the world’s people live in these areas. • The name “Vaseline” is a combination of the German word for “water” – wasser – and the Greek word for “olive oil” – elaion. • The South Pole is actually a desert environment, averaging about the same amount of monthly rainfall as the Sahara Desert.

• Cracker Jacks were first advertised on television in 1955, sponsoring the CBS game show “On Your Account.” Ads appeared over the years until 1984, when they were discontinued. The 1999 Super Bowl featured a brand-new ad for Cracker Jacks, the first in 15 years. • In 2004, the New York Yankees tried replacing Cracker Jacks with the toffee-flavored snack Crunch ‘n Munch at home games. This action was quickly rescinded after a huge protest by fans. • Frito-Lay has owned Cracker Jack since 1997. In 2016, the company announced that the packages would no longer contain prizes. In an attempt to keep up with the times, the package now features a code good for a download to play games on the Cracker Jack app through Google Play. Text by Tidbits Media, Inc.

Drunk Russian Bounces Back RUSSIA - A drunk Russian who fell 40 feet from an apartment balcony after drinking a bottle of vodka walked away without a scratch. The 30-year-old from Moscow, named only as Oleg, had come to a friend’s apartment for a party. But having downed a quart of vodka in a few hours he complained he was feeling ill and went to the balcony for some fresh air. His friends said he lost his balance as he went on the balcony - and fell 40 feet down to the ground. But instead of being killed he got up and walked back to the apartment, and carried on drinking as if nothing had happened, local media reported. A friend said, “We thought he must have died after falling all that way. We called medics and they were just as shocked as we were to find Oleg a bit dazed but alive and well. “The medics who had come in the ambulance said they can’t work out why he didn’t die and said he must have drunk so much that his muscles and limbs were so relaxed they were almost like jelly, and he bounced off the ground when he hit it like a ball.”

“Worried about an IRS audit? Avoid what’s called a red flag. That’s something the IRS always looks for. For example, say you have some money left in your bank account after paying your taxes. That’s a red flag.”

A Taxing Situation... Tax Day This Year is April 17th

• The American yew, a shrub commonly found around federal buildings in Washington, D.C., has the botanical name Taxus taxus. • The first federal income tax law was signed by Abraham Lincoln. The tax was 3% on incomes over $600. This was a temporary measure to fund the Civil War, public participation was not wide-spread and the tax was abolished after the war ended. • In January 1986, it was revealed that the U.S. government’s first effort to rid itself of a surplus of sugar cost taxpayers about $36 million. Approximately 122,000 tons of sugar were sold a month earlier to Shepherd Oil Company of Louisiana for $7.4 million, to be converted into ethanol to blend with gasoline. The sugar had cost the U.S. Agriculture Department $43.2 million. It was estimated that, at those rates, the losses accrued to unload the sugar could exceed $100 million. • A tomato is a fruit, but it is legally known as a vegetable. In 1893, there was a case before the United States Supreme Court about importing tomatoes from the West Indies. Fruits could be imported tax-free, vegetables couldn’t. Since tomatoes were eaten with main dishes and not as or with desserts, the Court ruled them to be a vegetable, so that the government could tax them! • According to the Beer Institute in Washington, D.C., a combination of federal, state, and local taxes accounts for almost 43 percent of the cost of every bottle of beer sold in the United States. • In 1953 the average family paid only 11 percent of its income out in taxes. • The phrase “guinea pig” originated when a tax was imposed on powder for Whigs in England to help pay for the war with Napoleon. The list of those who had paid the guinea (one pound, one shilling) was posted on their parish church door. As they were the wealthy of the day, they became known as the guinea pigs. • In colonial America, tobacco was acceptable legal tender in several Southern colonies, and in Virginia, taxes were paid in tobacco. • Germany has a church tax, which is automatically withheld from paychecks. This tax assures the nation’s churches of a steady,

So, he issued a stiff tax on beards in 1698; those who couldn’t pay the tax had to get their beards shaven. • Missouri levied a tax on bachelors on December 20, 1820. • Employees of the Vatican pay no income tax. • Soap was considered a frivolous luxury of the British aristocracy from the early 1700s until 1862, and there was a tax on those who used it in England. • Swiss men who live in other countries don’t have to serve in the Swiss military, but they are required to tithe 2 percent of their income in the form of a military exemption tax. The tax is also paid by men who don’t qualify for military service. Women aren’t required to pay the tax, nor are they expected to serve in the Swiss army. • It was reported in 1992 that free-lance Dutch prostitutes would have to charge sales tax, but that they could write off items such as condoms and beds. The ruling stemmed from a 1990 court decision in The Netherlands that it was unfair to exempt selfemployed prostitutes from the tax-charged brothels.

• When the 31-year-old Aladdin hotel and casino in Las Vegas was dynamited in front of a crowd of thousands in 1998, 100 police officers were needed for security. Aladdin owners paid the overtime expenses for all police officers so as to not pass the expense on to tax payers.

Poor Mexican Town Raffles Off New Car . . . But You Can’t Have It For 50 YEARS! MEXICO - The Mexican town of Ojinaga, in the state of Chihuahua, made international headlines recently for a rather unusual raffle. Instead of being awarded to the winner, the prize – a brand new car – was buried as a time capsule, to be used by the winner’s relatives, 50 years from now. Who knows if we’ll even be driving cars in 2068, but one thing is for sure – one Mexican family will be the lucky winner of a brand new, unused 2018 car buried in the Ojinaga town

With so few people in Ojinaga who could afford a used car, let alone a new one, many believed that the civil association could have donated it instead of burying it. One man, who claimed to have been traveling between Ojinaga and Chihuahua City almost daily for the past couple of years, to treat his son’s incurable illness, said he could have probably used that car much more than whoever digs it out 50 years from now. Despite all the criticism, organizers decided to go ahead with their original plan to bury The Time Traveler! square, earlier this month. Dubbed “El Viajero Del Tiempo” (The Time Traveler), the car was bought by members of the local association in charge of organizing the yearly “El IV Reencuentro Ojinaguense” festival (The 4th Ojinaguense Reunion). The Time Traveler was filled up with photographs, handwritten letters and a bunch of things from 2018 for the people to discover, then lowered into a concrete-lined hole in the town square, using a large crane. It was then sealed in concrete under the disapproving eyes of the crowd, many of which could have come up with a much more practical use for the vehicle.

The first city to reach a population of 1 million people was Rome, Italy in 133 B.C. London, England reached the mark in 1810 and New York City, USA made it in 1875. Today, there are over 330 cities in the world that boast a population in excess of 1 million.

Useless Information …

• There are 206 bones in the adult human body and there are 300 in children (as they grow some of the bones fuse together) • Sound travels 15 times faster through steel than through the air. • The top of the Empire State Building was originally intended as a mooring place for dirigibles. (Although it has never been used for that purpose.) • An average beehive has 30,000 to 60,000 bees living in it. A queen laying 1,000 to 3,000 eggs per day easily maintains this population. • Congress passed a law prohibiting American vessels from supplying slaves to other countries on March 22, 1794.

TIDBITS® PLAYS A FEW CARD GAMES continued from front page

• Early European cards from the 1300s were illustrated by hand by artists, often painted in gold, and were an expensive luxury afforded only by the wealthy aristocracy. Toward the end of that century, woodcuts were invented, which made the production of cards cheaper and more available to the common man. Once the printing press was invented, cards could be mass-produced, and games became popular across Europe. Cards were made from up to 6 pieces of paper glued together, and were much larger than the cards of today.

artwork, the backs were plain. A plain back created the problem of being easily marked, which could be recognized by an opponent. Since cards were expensive, they had to be returned to the workshop for cleaning. It wasn’t until the late 1700s that manufacturers began printing patterns of stars or dots on the back to eliminate the problem.

In many cases it simply does not get paid. Relatives or heirs of the deceased are not responsible for a friend or family member’s debt, except in cases where they have been a cosigner on that debt. Let’s say someone’s parents died, and at the time of their death they had $100,000 in debt in their names only. The only way that debt will be paid is if they owned enough stuff — if they had enough in the way of assets — to pay the debt. If they owned a $200,000 home, the house would have to be sold in order to pay the debts. Their estate would be the only thing standing good for the debt. If they owned nothing, and had no co-signers on any of the debt, the creditor would not get paid. The bank lost that money. Elizabeth, I hope that helped.

Meanwhile, Back In Ol’e Mexico... A Mexican bandit made a specialty of crossing the Rio Grande from time to time and robbing banks in Texas. Finally, a reward was offered for his capture. An enterprising Texas Ranger decided to track him down. After a lengthy search, he traced the bandit to his favorite cantina, snuck up behind him, put his trusty six-shooter to the bandit’s head, and said, “You’re under arrest. Tell me where you hid the loot or I’ll blow your brains out.” But the bandit didn’t speak English and the Ranger didn’t speak Spanish! Fortunately, a bilingual lawyer was in the saloon and translated the Ranger’s message. The terrified bandit blurted out, in Spanish, that the loot was buried under the oak tree in back of the cantina. “What did he say?” asked the Ranger. The lawyer answered, “He said, ‘Get lost, you turkey. You wouldn’t dare shoot me.’”

ALL GAMES PLAYED AT THE TOYOTA CENTER, 7000 W GRANDRIDGE BLVD, KENNEWICK, WA

“The Greatest Showman” (PG) -- Witness the rise and drive behind America’s original sanguine starmaker, P.T. Barnum (Hugh Jackman). His story runs from his roots in poverty, through a series of failed business opportunities, to his all-in gamble collecting what were the dregs of society, and duding them up to be displayed as jeweled rarities ... and it does so with original music and dance numbers! Jackman plays Barnum as relentlessly positive and captivating, and Michelle Williams is a real sweetheart as Barnum’s wife Charity. The music alone is wonderful: You can feel the confidence blooming in “This Is Me,” and the butterflies in your stomach during “Rewrite the Stars,” the rope-swinging love song between Philip Carlyle (Zac

Efron) and Anne Wheeler (Zendaya).

“Braven” (R) -- “Big and beautiful” describes both the mountain scenery in this standard but well-done action feast and its star, Jason Momoa. He plays gentle giant Joe Braven -- father, husband and logging-company owner. He heads up to his cabin in the woods with his good old dad to button it up for the season, when lo and behold, they come across a giant bag of cocaine, which was stashed in the cabin by some drug traffickers. While there’s only one gun and a bow and arrows in the cabin, you get the idea that Mr. Braven is skilled in the art of defense -- and you won’t be disappointed to see how. Garret Dillahunt does a wonderful turn as the villainous bad guy Kassen.

Twins Born Two Months Apart

ROMANIA - A Romanian woman gave birth to a baby boy in December and then delivered his twin brother at the end of January. Maricica Tescu, 37, from Carlig in Iasi county, knew she was expecting twins but didn’t expect a two month gap between the babies. The first baby, a boy, was born on December 11, when the mother was in her seventh month of pregnancy. Doctors said this is a unique case in Romania and there have only been a few such cases worldwide. They explained the woman has a double uterus and each of the babies developed separately. The babies’ parents don’t know yet if their children will be considered twins because they were born in different years.
