Portions of the name sound like vulgarities in English and Spanish, leading to its use in various jokes. Titicaca is the lake that Cornholio, alter-ego of Beavis of MTV's animated series Beavis and Butt-head, claims to come from although he believes the lake is located in Nicaragua.

The word 'Trekdom' is used interchangeably with 'Fandom' when referring to Star Trek Fandom or their fans and has been in use by fans of Star Trek fans for several decades.
After the recent cancellation of Star Trek: Enterprise, the future of Trekdom is still uncertain, though it has been scaled back to its own core. Some may believe that Trekdom might die off, or it might be extinct at the onset of such conflicts such as World War III.

Cultural imperialism at its WTF-est:
Kay Rala Xanana Gusmão GCL (born José Alexandre Gusmão, on June 20, 1946) is a former freedom fighter who became the first President of East Timor since independence from Indonesia.
His nickname, "Xanana", is taken from the name of the 1970's rock and roll/comedy group Sha Na Na.

On a radio interview, Trina said that the relationship was more of a "brother-sister" relationship. Later, on Victoria's RapBasement, Lil Wayne said he knew nothing of the rumors. During Wayne's childhood, he mistakenly got thought of as a gay guy but late he dismissed all these claims by watching naked gun 33 and a third.

(Phil) Hartman met comedian Paul Reubens while working with the group and the two became friends, often writing and working on material together. One such collaboration was the character of Pee-wee Herman and the script of the feature film Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Hartman also met Jon Lovitz while with The Groundlings. Hartman was fluent in German and a video circulated once of him doing a standup routine in the language.
Hartman worked part time as a graphic artist, including designing album covers for popular rock bands. Hartman's covers include:
* Steely Dan's 1977 album Aja
* Poco's 1978 album Legend
* Firesign Theatre's 1980 album Fighting Clowns
* Three album covers for the band America
* Crosby, Stills & Nash's logo.

(Rolf) Harris has played the didgeridoo on two albums by English pop singer Kate Bush, 1982's The Dreaming and 2005's Aerial. His biggest hit, however, was a gimmick-free rendering of the sentimental song "Two Little Boys" (1969), a departure for him in that he usually recorded either his own compositions or traditional songs. Harris also created one of his most famous roles in the 1960s, Jake the Peg.

The village, and its surroundings, have approx. 600 inhabitants. One of the newest, and surely one of the most exotic of all is... a peacock.
Actually though there were peacocks at one of the nearby farms as far back as the 1970's because I sat on them.

While shooting the stunt where Marty is being hanged by Tannen and his gang, Fox offered to try the stunt without using a box to stand on. He then miscalculated where his hand would slip between the rope and his neck, actually hanging himself, causing him to pass out. It was originally thought that there was a connection between Fox's Parkinson's symptoms and this incident.

From Laos national football team:
The 2006 Thai comedy movie Lucky Loser was originally filmed to be about a soccer team from Laos, but was later re-edited to replace Laos with a fictional country named Arvee, after complaints from Laotians, as the film mostly plays on stereotypes of Laos. Ironically, in the finished product, Arvee has made it to the second stage of World Cup qualifying as a lucky loser, just as Laos had really done during 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification.

The crux of Brandt's argument can be summed up with these paragraphs from the Salon.com article.
When you type "NameBase" into Google, Brandt's site comes up first, but Brandt is not satisfied with that. "My problem has been to get Google to go deep enough into my site," he says. In other words, Brandt wants Google to index the 100,000 names he has in his database, so that a Google search for "Donald Rumsfeld" will bring up NameBase's page for the secretary of defense. For some reason, though, all of NameBase's deep pages -- its pages with specific names and citations -- have a low Google page rank, which causes them to show up low in the search results. Search for "Donald Rumsfeld" in Google and in the first five pages you get a lot of .mil and .gov sites, some news stories, and some activist sites. Namebase's entry on Rumsfeld doesn't come up. (It is in Google's database, but to find it somebody would have to first wade through hundreds of results.)

Stephen Potter (author/humourist):
In 1930 he wrote D. H. Lawrence: A First Study, the first book-length work on Lawrence, which appeared in print within a few days of the death of its subject, unfortunate timing because it seemed like an inadequate memorial rather than what it was intended to be, a critical reappraisal. It also suffered from a regrettable misprint, rendering the heading "Sea and Sardinia", as "Sex and Sardinia". This was soon amplified by rumour into "Sex and Sardines", none of which helped Potter's reputation as a serious writer.

In 1985, New Coke was sold only in Canada, the United States, and United States territories, while the original formula continued to be sold in the rest of the world (had the new version been a success it would presumably have been introduced worldwide). New Coke was eventually returned to the company's product portfolio; it was test-marketed in certain U.S. cities under the name Coke II in 1990 and officially renamed Coke II in 1992, despite the company's original intention not to create a second brand. Filmmaker Miranda July is said to have suggested the name of Coke II while working as a tastemaker for an ad agency.
