Photoshop, Frisbee and Stonehenge - did you know this stuff?
This week we learnt that:
Photoshop was not, in fact, invented by Adobe. It was developed by George Lucas's company, Industrial Light & Magic, and was used for the film, the Abyss.
The man who invented the modern frisbee design was cremated, and his remains were turned into frisbees, as per his dying wishes.
People who are more adventurous tend to be more visually aware too - a study showed that people who had a high "openness" measure on the big five personality traits were more likely to notice a grey square on a screen of moving letters.
Cycling to work can half your chance of getting cancer. And even if it doesn't, it'll help you concentrate better.
In 1915, Sir Cecil Chubb (of the security company fame) bought Stonehenge for his wife. She didn't like it, however, so he gave it to the government in 1918, ending Stonehenge's long line of private ownership.
