Did you know that octopi reproduce only once? They put all of their energy into generating and caring for the many eggs. The octopus will find a den to lay her eggs. Following their hatching, she will not eat and will spend all of her time caring for the eggs by cleaning and aerating them. After they hatch, the mother shall die and the exact scientific reason for this is unknown. They evidently use up all of their energy while caring for the eggs and it’s believed that losing their eggs come as a psychological shock, It is generally agreed that octopuses are intelligent creatures and many scientists feel as though they see no purpose in life following their eggs hatching, that combined with the exhaustion results in them giving up and dying. The male also dies shortly after mating.

On Christmas Eve of 1990, Thomas J. Grasso broke into the home of 87-year-old Hilda Johnson and strangled her to death with her own Christmas tree lights before stealing a measly $12 and her TV. Grasso then moved to New York with his wife, Lana, where he broke into the home of 81-year-old Leslie Holtz and strangled him to death and stole  his Social Security check. Grasso was sentenced to death. After making a number of bizarre statements on the day of his execution, he had a last meal of steamed mussels, steamed clams, a double cheeseburger from Burger King, a half-dozen barbecued spare ribs, two strawberry milkshakes, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, diced strawberries, and a 16-ounce can of spaghetti with meatballs which was served at room temperature. His last words before being executed by lethal injection were:

“I did not get my SpaghettiOs, I got spaghetti. I want the press to know this.“

Like everything great, Star Wars came within an ass-hair’s width of being total shit. You gotta remember that in the ‘70s anyone with a doofy beard and a plaid shirt could shoot a movie just by telling people what to do and not giving them the chance to disagree. It was a magical time.

But through George Lucas’ devotion to an acid flashback he was apparently having for three straight weeks, when production wrapped, he found himself with a masterpiece of celluloid, right?

Nope! Turns out that the first cut of Star Wars was an incomprehensible mess, and it was up to George’s wife and editor, Marcia Lucas, to swoop in and save the day … again.
Actually, Marcia was Lucas’ “muse” through the entire production, if by “muse” you mean “person who had all the good ideas.” It was her idea to kill Obi-Wan (apparently George’s first draft had him just disappearing at one point) and demanded that Lucas keep the “For Luck” kiss scene that would snarl the series up in a knotty mess of incest once the third movie was released. But, most importantly, she’s totally responsible for the Battle of Yavin, also known as The Death Star Trench Run scene, also known as The Part at the End of the Movie Where the Good Guys Win.
