Adam’s Fun Facts: Whiskey, Vermont, Got Milk? Ad & More!

Where do we get the name whiskey from?  What is the only state with no Target?  Who directed the famous “Who shot Alexander Hamilton?” ad?  All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:

1. The first Got Milk? ad was directed by Michael Bay, and you might remember it. A history expert has to answer “Who shot Alexander Hamilton?” to win a radio contest, but he can’t say Aaron Burr because he’s been eating peanut butter and needs milk. (Foodbeast)

2. The highest-scoring college basketball game ever happened in January of 1992, when Troy State from Alabama beat DeVry Institute from Atlanta 258-to-141. (Los Angeles Times)

3. Vermont is the only state that doesn’t have a Target. (Burlington Free Press)

4. The word “whiskey” comes from a Gaelic phrase that translates to “water of life.” (Online Etymology)

5. In 1893, a Congressman proposed a Constitutional amendment that would rename the country to the “United States of Earth.” Obviously, it didn’t pass. (11 Points)
