It seems that many of us have been misquoting well-known phrases for years. This week, Tidbits sets the record straight on some of the more common ones. • We’ve all heard Murphy’s Law, something along the lines of, “If something can go wrong, it will, and usually at the worst time.” There was a real Murphy – Edward A. Murphy, a U.S. Air Force engineer who was working on a rocket-sled experiment in the late 1940s. The project involved mounting 16 accelerator instruments to a participant’s body. There were two ways the 16 sensors could be glued to the mount, and all 16 were installed backwards. Murphy was heard to say, “If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe, then someone will do it.” • One of the most often-misquoted lines in movie history is “Play it again, Sam” from the 1942 film “Casablanca.” Most folks believe that leading man Humphrey Bogart uttered the famous phrase. The pianist Sam is being asked to play the song “As Time Goes By.” Ingrid Bergman’s character Ilsa Lund says, “Play it once, Sam. For old times’ sake.” When Sam objects, she repeats, “Play it, Sam.” Later in the movie, Bogart says, “Play it!” No one ever says, “Play it again, Sam.” WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS?

• Me Tarzan, you Jane” is another movie line that never happened. In the 1932 film “Tarzan, the Ape Man,” actress Maureen O’Sullivan as Jane Parker was attempting to teach her language to Tarzan, played by Johnny Weissmuller, actor and former Olympian. Pointing to herself, she said, “Jane,” which Tarzan repeated. Jane then said, “And you? You?” to which he replied, “Tarzan, Tarzan.” • Have you heard the quote attributed to the French philosopher Voltaire? – “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.” Although attributed to Voltaire, this quotation was actually that of his biographer Evelyn Beatrice Hall in her 1906 book, The Friends of Voltaire. Voltaire actually did say, “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too” in his 1763 “Essay on Tolerance.” It’s thought that he also wrote in a letter to a colleague: “I detest what you write, but I would give my life to make it possible for you to continue to write.” • We all know that “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned,” but not everyone realizes that the correct quotation is “Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,” penned by English poet William Congreve in his 1697 work, “The Mourning Bride.” • The sultry 1930s diva Mae West is often quoted as saying, “Come up and see me sometime.” In the 1933 movie “She Done Him Wrong,” West, in her role as Lady Lou, utters, “Why don’t you come up sometime and see me?” ...continued

MISQUOTES (cont'd): • Many popular sayings are attributed to the Bible that aren’t really in there. As children, many of us were admonished by our parents with “Cleanliness is next to godliness,” perhaps an attempt to get us to wash behind our ears! This adage first appeared in a printed sermon by John Wesley in 1769, in which the minister wrote, “Slovenliness is no part of religion. Cleanliness is indeed next to godliness.” Perhaps you think that the old saying, “God helps those who help themselves” is another Biblical truth. In fact, it was Aesop of “Aesop’s Fables” fame who first penned, “the gods help them that help themselves.” In Benjamin Franklin’s 1736 edition of “Poor Richard’s Almanac,” a similar says goes, “One who comes to be purified is helped.” Have you heard folks say, “no rest for the wicked”? The accurate wording is found in Isaiah 57:21, “There is no peace, says my God, to the wicked.” And lots of us say, “Money is the root of all evil,” when in fact, the correct wording in I Timothy 6:10 is “the love of money is the root of all evil…” • In the 1995 film “Apollo 13,” Tom Hanks in the role of Commander Jim Lovell says, “Houston, we have a problem.” During the 1970 mission, Apollo 13 astro-

naut Jack Swigert was the first to say a similar phrase, “Okay, Houston, we’ve had a problem here.” NASA in Houston replied, “This is Houston. Say again please,” to which Lovell replied, “Houston, we’ve had a problem. We’ve had a main B bus undervolt.” • The quote, “Well-behaved women seldom make history” has often been attributed to actress Marilyn Monroe. The credit for the line really goes to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, a Harvard professor and Pulitzer Prize winner who wrote it in a 1976 journal article.

MISQUOTES (cont'd):

• Diehard Trekkies will know that Captain James T. Kirk never said, “Beam me up, Scotty!” in any of the 80 episodes of the original “Star Trek” series, which aired from 1966 to 1969. The closest Captain Kirk came to that phrase was in the 1968 episode “Gamesters of Triskelion,” when he exclaimed, “Beam us up, Mr. Scott!” The animated “Star Trek” series, which ran for two seasons in 1973 – 1974, did have the line, “Beam us up, Scotty!” and the 1986 movie “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home included, “Scotty, beam me up.” The original series’ Mr. Scott was played by actor James Doohan, who entitled his 1996 biography Beam Me Up, Scotty! • The well-known phrase “A rose by any other name smells just as sweet” has its origins in Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” But the actual quote reads, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other word would smell as sweet.” • Speaking of Shakespeare, when we see images of witches stirring a cauldron, the phrase “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble” comes to mind. The correct phrase, from Act 4, Scene 1 of “Macbeth,” is actually “Double, double, toil and trouble.” Fans of the rock group Led Zeppelin will recognize the words in the first verse of “Stairway to Heaven”, “There’s a lady who’s sure, all that glitters is gold.” The chorus in the Smash Mouth song “All Star” also includes the phrase “All that glitters is gold.” In actuality, this is another Shakespeare misquote that reads correctly, “All that glisters is not gold,” spoken by the Prince of Morocco in “The Merchant of Venice.”

It has been misquoted for decades as "That's one small step for man...." Radio static was the reason the "a" was omitted from his original words. *Answers located further back in this issue.

Fun for the Whole Family!

• 25, 50, 100, 200 & 300 yard shooting ranges. • Open all year for target practice. • Located in secluded wood- land setting.

by Samantha Weaver

• It was 20th-century television, film and culture critic John Leonard who made the following sage observation: "In the cellars of the night, when the mind starts moving around old trunks of bad times, the pain of this and the shame of that, the memory of a small boldness is a hand to hold." • You probably won't be surprised to learn that a group of hedgehogs is known as a prickle. • In almost every state, there is a statute on the books making it illegal to jump off the top of an office building. Unsurprisingly, there's not much call to prosecute those who violate the law; district attorneys aren't in the habit of filing charges against corpses. However, in a few states, if you survive jumping off a building and are tried and convicted of violating that law, you could be sentenced to death. • Those who study such things say that among social media users, those who use Twitter are less likely to smoke than users of other platforms. • Just as humans have distinctive fingerprints, dogs have nose prints -- no two are the same. • You doubtless know of Theodore Geisel -better known as Dr. Seuss, the beloved author of such children's classics as "The Cat in the Hat," "Horton Hears a Who" and "Green Eggs and Ham," among many others. You might not realize, though, that his first book, "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," was rejected by more than two dozen publishers before it finally made it into print. • Did you know that dogs appear in the Bible? Yep -- 41 times. No mention of cats, though. *** Thought for the Day: "What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul." -- Joseph Addison

Unusual Animals:

ALLIGATORS

See ya later, Alligator! Take a look at some of these interesting facts about this member of the order Crocodylia. • Early Spanish explorers and settlers in Florida gave the alligator its name. This scaly reptile takes its name from the Spanish word largarto, meaning “the lizard.” • Alligators are native only to the United States and China. In the U.S., Louisiana has the most alligators, but large populations also live in Florida, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolina, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Texas. Although an American alligator can grow up to 20 feet long and weigh up to half a ton, on average, males grow to about 11 feet and females to about 8 feet. The Chinese alligator is much smaller, with males averaging a length of 5 feet and females at about 4.5 feet. The tail accounts for about half of an alligator’s length.

• An alligator’s jaws can clamp shut with enough force to break a person’s arm. But the muscles that open its mouth are very weak, so much so that a man can hold a full-grown alligator’s mouth closed with one hand. And although they move very quickly through water, alligators are slow-moving on land. • A female alligator will lay up to 50 eggs at a time, keeping them warm in a nest of rotting vegetation. The temperature of that nest will determine the gender of her offspring. Oddly enough, if the eggs are incubated over 93 degrees F, the embryos develop into males. Females are the result of temperatures below 86 degrees F, and between 86 and 93 degrees F, an embryo can develop into either gender. About 8 out of 10 baby alligators will be eaten by bobcats, snakes, otters, large fish, raccoons, and other alligators. • One of the main differences between alligators and crocodiles is their environment. Alligators dwell in fresh water, such as ponds, rivers, wetlands, lakes, and swamps, while crocodiles make their home in salt water. An alligator’s nostrils point upward, so they can breathe while the rest of the body is submerged in water.

• An American alligator has a life expectancy in the wild of nearly 50 years. • The menacing-looking mouth of an American alligator holds between 74 and 80 teeth at a time, but it might go through 2,000 to 3,000 teeth over its lifetime. • Although they seem to have a reputation for attacking humans, alligators are actually quite solitary and very rarely do they go after humans, usually only when provoked or when protecting their young. Their diet consists of fish, turtles, snakes, birds, and small mammals. Occasionally they eat other alligators.

• Although there are about five million American alligators in the southeastern United States, they were once nearly extinct. Years of hunters seeking the valuable hides landed alligators on the endangered species list. When the U.S. fish & wildlife Service prohibited the trade of hides, alligators made such a comeback that they were removed from the list in 1987.

• “If you use storage bins for kids’ toys, help them stay organized by labeling the bins with illustrations or even printed and laminated photos of the contents. It will make clean-up time a cinch, even for the little tykes who can’t read yet!” — D. in Michigan • Bobby pins are easily manageable in a magnetic container meant for paper clips. They are inexpensive and can be found at big-box stores or at an office-supply store. • Save and organize scrap yarn and embroidery threads on clothespins. Wind around and use the clip to hold the end in place. When you need some thread or yarn, you’ll be able to find the end quickly to get what you need. • “Kids love getting water from the refrigerator dispenser, but we use far too many cups.

HEART ATTACK FACTS • 37% of all deaths in the United States are related to heart disease, making it the largest single cause of natural death. Heart disease kills twice as many people as all forms of cancer combined. The major causes are smoking, fatty diet, high blood pressure, obesity, stress, heredity, lack of exercise, and diabetes. It is an illness produced of man's environment. Before 1900, heart attacks were very rare. The rate of heart disease increased so sharply between 1940 and 1967 that the World Health Organization called it the world’s most serious epidemic. • Every single cell in the heart is guided by an electrical impulse which synchronizes the heartbeat so all muscle cells contract in unison to pump the blood. During a heart attack, the cells begin firing out of turn so the efficiency of the heart is lost and the blood does not get pumped. When doctors shock the heart, the shock overrides each cell’s individual firing mechanism and once again synchronizes every cell, hopefully getting them all to work together again.

• Research indicates that migraines might be caused in part by changes in the level of serotonin. When serotonin levels fall, blood vessels dilate and the swelling brings on the migraine. • Who gets migraines? The condition is three times more common in women, with 30% of women suffering over a lifetime. It’s most common in the ages from the 20s through the 50s. Migraines seem to occur most between the ages of 35 and 45. Yet, they can also affect children and the elderly. Migraines affect someone in one of every four American households. Most experience a few attacks per month, but 3% of the population experiences chronic migraines, with headaches at least 15 days of each month for at least six months. Eighty percent of those who get migraines have a family history of the malady. If one parent has migraines, a child has a 50% chance of the condition, and a 75% chance if both parents get them. • About 20% of those who get migraines experience an “aura” of visual symptoms shortly before the migraine hits. A person might see flashing lights, wavy lines, or dots, and/or experience tunnel vision or blind spots, and might even include hallucinations.
