By: Adam Alexander
How much do cats really sleep? What did King Olaf V win a gold medal in the Olympics for doing? Who had more episodes: “Saved By The Bell” or “The New Class”? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. “Saved By the Bell: The New Class” had a longer run than the original “Saved By the Bell” and produced more episodes. (Wikipedia)

2. “Midnight Train to Georgia” was originally called “Midnight Plane to Houston” because the songwriter was talking with Farrah Fawcett and she said she was taking a midnight plane to Houston to see her family. (Wikipedia)

3. There are several animals that are immune to snake and scorpion venom, including pigs, hedgehogs, and skunks. (Smithsonian Magazine)

4. Cats sleep so much that by the time they turn nine years old, they’ve only been awake about three years. (PetMD)

5. King Olaf V of Norway competed in the Olympics while he was king but not just because he could, because he was actually really good at SAILING.  He won a gold medal at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam. (Wikipedia)
