Antics & Anecdotes

• On Nov. 9, 1965, a backup relay on one of the five main transmission lines failed at a station near Toronto. The electrical load shifted to the other four lines, which then became overloaded and shut down. Within minutes, power plants in Canada, New York, and most of New England were out of service, putting 30 million people in the dark. In some areas, power was not restored for more than 12 hours. Nine months later, hospitals in the area noted a distinct increase in the number of babies born.

• Janos Pek of Hungary had been confined to a hospital bed for 11 years after an accident left him paralyzed and mute. In 1975, he was listening to the opening game of the soccer season on the radio. When the announcer described the tripping of a player of Pek’s favorite team, Pek shouted, “Penalty!” It was the first word he had spoken in over a decade. Though he remained paralyzed, he spoke normally afterwards. Incidentally, Pek’s team won the game.

• Owen Rutherford was an attendant at the Lincoln Park Zoo. One day he drove to the airport to pick up some snakes being shipped in. It seemed to him that the deadly black mamba snake was dead. So he poked it with his finger. The snake was not dead. Rutherford recovered in a nearby hospital.

• George Watts of England liked being in the hospital. He liked the free room and board, and he especially liked being cared for by sympathetic nurses. So he made a habit of swallowing coins, then admitting himself to various hospitals across the country. He would complain of chest pains, doctors would remove the coins, nurses would care for him, and the government would pick up the tab. When the government figured out his scheme, he was sentenced to a year in jail for obtaining hospital care by deception.

• Catherine Yasinchuk came to the U.S. before World War I at the age of 15. She spoke only her native Ukrainian. She married, had a child— and was devastated when they both died. She wandered the streets weeping. The police found her, but she only babbled incoherently. The police sent her to a mental hospital. She was 23 at the time. She lived there for the next 48 years, where everyone assumed she was insane because she was unable to communicate. In 1968 a new director reviewed her case. An employee who spoke Ukrainian discovered she could communicate after all. She was released from the institute and went to live with the daughter of the woman in the personnel department. She died in 1983, having spent half her life in an institute because she spoke a different language. THE FINAL FACT

At the prison in McAlester, Oklahoma, death row inmate Robert Brecheen overdosed the day before he was to be executed. He was rushed to the hospital where his stomach was pumped. Then he was taken back to the prison and promptly executed.

Pet Bits

Q: What’s in the urine of our female dog, Goldie, that isn’t in Butch, our male dog’s urine? They both relieve themselves in different part of the yard. Goldie’s urine causes many brown spots, but not nearly so much with Butch. Do you answer pee questions? A: I do answer pee questions! All dogs are individuals, and the composition of urine will vary from dog to dog, having nothing to do with the dog’s sex. However, male dogs generally pee in sprits and sprays; the lawn gets some urine, but so do nearby bushes and maybe even the side of your garage. Females tend to void all in one place. It’s a matter of volume; the more urine, the more prominent the brown spot. FYI: It’s excess nitrogen that causes those spots in the grass.

CEREAL • In 496 B.C.E. there was a terrible drought in Rome. The priests thought if they adopted a new goddess, perhaps she would help. So they started worshipping Ceres. She became the protector of crops, and the caretakers of her temple became grain dealers, since she was responsible for the growth of grain. A new Latin word was coined meaning “of Ceres”: cerealis. That’s where we get our cereal. • Oatmeal has more protein than whole wheat. Samuel Johnson said oats are “a grain which is generally given to horses but in Scotland supports the people.” A Scot replied, “That is why in England you have such fine horses and in Scotland we have such fine men.”

• Grape Nuts is one of the few cereals with no added sugar. It has nothing to do with grapes or nuts, being made out of wheat and barley. Charles Post named it Grape-Nuts because it tasted nutty and he thought its taste came from dextrose, called grape sugar at the time. • Charles Post cashed in on the success of the cereal business when he came out with a cereal he called Elijah’s Manna. He tried to export it to Britain but they refused to register it, feeling giving such a religious name to a food item was sacrilegious. Post changed the name to Post Toasties. • If all the shredded wheat biscuits consumed by Americans in a single year were placed end-to-end, they

would circle the globe twice. • After winning the Olympic decathlon in 1976, Bruce Jenner was signed up to sell Wheaties. On the air, Jenner claimed he had eaten Wheaties all his life. The assistant district attorney in San Francisco brought suit against General Mills, claiming consumer fraud. They felt that Jenner hadn’t really eaten Wheaties all his life. Jenner challenged the DA to ask his mother. The suit was dropped. • The Trix rabbit is always trying to sneak a bowl of Trix cereal, but the kids constantly take it away from him, saying “Trix is for kids!” During the 1976 presidential elections, General Mills worried that this might be teaching kids a bad thing: try as you might, you’ll

never reach your goal. So they put it to the vote. By sending in box-top ballots, kids were asked to vote on whether or not the rabbit would get his Trix. 99% voted yes. Amidst great fanfare, the rabbit got to eat a whole bowl on the next commercial. Then, like Oliver Twist, he held out his empty bowl and asked for more— only to be told he had to wait for the next election. • In 1964 both Kelloggs and Post introduced cereal that had freezedried fruit in it. They thought the fruit would absorb moisture from the milk and be reconstituted in the bowl. Unfortunately it took so long for the fruit to rehydrate that the cereal was hopelessly soggy by the time the fruit was edible.

Salmon Arm GM Staff Profile Richard Dahlen - Parts Manager Richard joined us at Salmon Arm GM on July 23rd, 2012. He comes to Salmon Arm GM with lots of Parts experience from some big city stores, but he is a small town boy at heart. Richard loves Football, Hockey and Golf, although don’t keep score when you see him on the course (it takes a really long time to count that high). Richard and his wife Arnette love living in the Shuswap. Richard would love for you to come say hi, he always has the coffee on.
