By Adam Alexander
Kiefer Sutherland did something no one else has done when he appeared on “Inside the Actors Studio”. What odd thins do female armadillos do when they give birth? What is misspelled on the game Monopoly? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Marvin Gardens on the Monopoly board has always been misspelled. The actual neighborhood in Atlantic City, New Jersey is spelled M-A-R-V-E-N, but in Monopoly it’s M-A-R-V-I-N. Parker Brothers apologized for the mistake in 1995. (Wikipedia)

2. The longest movie ever to get a wide release is “Gone With the Wind”.  The theatrical version was three hours and 46 minutes. Any longer movie that’s come out since has been clipped down for theaters. (New York Post)

3. The Hangzhou Zhang Xiaoquan Company in China has been manufacturing scissors since 1663. (BBC)

4. Female armadillos always give birth to identical quadruplets. (National Geographic)

5. When Kiefer Sutherland appeared on “Inside the Actors Studio” in 2005, he was the first guest to be a child of a former guest. His father, Donald Sutherland, appeared on the show in 1998. (FactsPage)
