Adam’s Fun Facts: Karate Kid, Sumo Wrestling, Starbucks & More!

What company did founders sell their Starbucks stake to start?  What was the original song for “Rocky 3” supposed to be?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. Starbucks and Peet’s Coffee were founded and owned by some of the same people but some of them sold their stake in Starbucks in 1987 to focus on Peet’s. (Wikipedia)

2. Only three countries in the world have constitutions that guarantee the right to bear arms: Guatemala, Mexico, and the United States. (Wikipedia)

3. Australia is the only place in the world with horizontal time zones.  However, hey only go into effect in the summer which is our winter. (World Time Zone)

4. No one from Japan has achieved the highest rank in sumo wrestling since 1998. It’s called “yokozuna,” and all five since 1999 have come from either the United States or Mongolia. (Wikipedia)

5. The song “You’re the Best” from “The Karate Kid” was originally written for “Rocky 3”, but the producers went with “Eye of the Tiger” instead. (Wikipedia)
