Adam’s Fun Facts: Simpsons, Steve Jobs, NFL Score & More!

By: Adam Alexander
Who is the only character on The Simpson to have 5 fingers?  When was the last time the score of an NFL game was 7-0?  How did Steve Jobs make more money from Disney than he did from Apple?  It’s Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. From 1876 to 1887, Major League Baseball players could request where the pitcher threw the pitches during an at-bat: High, low, or middle. And the umpire adjusted the strike zone to the request. (MLB)

2. Every character on “The Simpsons” only has four fingers on their hand with the exception of God, who has five when he’s appeared in Homer’s various visions and dreams. (Simpsons Wikia)

3. Mount Vesuvius in Italy is still an active volcano and 550,000 people would need to be immediately evacuated if it erupts again. (The Telegraph)

4. There hasn’t been an NFL game with the final score 7-to-nothing in over 30 years. On December 4, 1983, the Patriots beat the Saints 7-0.  That was the last time. (Pro Football Reference)

5. Most of Steve Jobs’ wealth came from Disney, not Apple. When Disney acquired Pixar from him in 2006, he got 7.4% of Disney worth about $4.4 billion. He “only” had about $2.1 billion from Apple. (ABC News)
