I'm Colombian, hence I love Coffee, so here a few facts: Legend has it... Ethiopian shepereds first noticed the effects of caffeine when they saw their goats appearing to become frisky and "dance after eating coffee berries ✪ George Washington invented instant coffee... (yes, a Belgian man in Guatemala by the name of George Washington invented it in 1906).

Movies & Scripts

I won best Latin American script for “The X Files” TV series, (FOX Broadcasting Company) 2000. I kid you not. ✪ Darth Vader only has 12 minutes of screen time in the original Star Wars ✪ Sean Connery is only 12 years older than Harrison Ford ✪ R2D2 and C3PO appear as Hieroglyphics in the Ark's chamber in Indiana Jones: Raiders of the lost ark.


Warner Chappel Music makes over $1 million every year in royalties from the commercial use of the song “Happy Birthday ✪ The airplane that Buddy Holly died in was called American Pie. Don McLean wrote a song with the same name about the accident ✪ Most toilets flush in E flat. ✪ Dark Side of The Moon (a Pink Floyd album) stayed on the top 200 Billboard charts for 741 weeks! That is 14 years. ✪ Children who study a musical instrument are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education ✪ Learning and mastering a musical instrument improves the way the brain breaks down and understands human language, making music students more apt to pick up a second language.


It is estimated that millions of trees grow thanks to squirrels forgetting where the buried their nuts. ✪ 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321 ✪ “Typewriter” is the longest word typed on only one keyboard row (try it!) ✪ “Stewardesses” is the longest word typed on just one half of the keyboard (try that too!).
