Adam’s Fun Facts: Ace Of Base, Live Action Simpsons, ESPN & More!

By Adam Alexander
How many people actually have named their child ESPN? Why did an attempt at a live action version of, “The Simpsons” fail? How did a member of Ace Of Base get their start? All that and more with Adam’s Fun Facts:
1. Matt Groening wanted to make a live-action “Simpsons” spin-off in 1994. But one of the reasons it fell through was that the network said it would be too expensive to pay for a joke in the pilot featuring a bunch of trained beavers.  (EW)

2. On average, less than seven people die from spider bites every year in the United States. (Venomous Spiders)

3. Nothing with less than 10% alcohol was considered an alcoholic beverage in Russia until 2011!  It was classified as regular food and that included almost all beer. (BBC)

4. Ulf Ekberg is one of the original members of Ace of Base. And he got his start in a neo-Nazi band called Commit Suicide. (Huffington Post)

5. There are at least 22 children in the U.S. whose parents named them ESPN. (Wikipedia)
