When Berlin was divided, the underground S Bahn railway was run by the West, and the elevated S Bahn by the East. Both railways’ historic routes passed into the other half of the city, so rather than rebuild trains would pass through the stations there without stopping.

This is actually genius imo on the grounds of "simple is better than complex" and "There should be one-- and preferably only one --obvious way to do it.".

Best Friends Animal Society, who do lots of good work in the USA running shelters and all that, are "reorganised" from the Process Church Of The Final Judgement, who were a Scientology splinter group, used lots of Satanic imagery and had links (allegedly) with Charles Manson and his clan.

It's like discovering that Oxfam used to be the Church of Thelema, or something.

I don't think George Clinton was/is a scientologist, just a wonderfully crazy drug added loon.

If only he'd had better foresight, Noel Coward would have written 'Don't Put Your Great-grandson on the Stage Mrs Worthington', because one of those unborn children would turn out to be: Laurence Fox.

Hollywood icon Mae West, who pretty much invented sassyness as we know it, was an ancient 39 when she appeared in her first film in 1932, and then went onto appear in just 11 more films in which got top billing for each one AND wrote each one.

Considering how famous she was and the impact she made, that's an incredible filmography.

Also, she covered Light My Fire when she was 79: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGNOwCzpq3E

The most-amazing thing is he's not even his twin - Eddie is four years younger than Paul.

Everything about her last film, Sextette (made when she was 84) is just plain bonkers:

There's some pretty strong evidence that Thalidomide was first developed by Nazi doctors experimenting on concentration camp victims.

A cheeky attempt to patent a staple crop almost seems quaint compared with the way are princes carry on with all that noncing around the globe selling arms to despots.

The Sopranos was originally going to be called Family Guy until the cartoon beat them to it.

Saw an armadillo in South Carolina this weekend and apparently they have spread to North Carolina too. They love to eat fire ants (invasive species) and will "decimate an ant colony" which seems an oddly precise behavior.

The 'Later...' in 'Later... with Jools Holland' is there because originally the show was an extended version of BBC2's arts programme The Late Show.
