    Came across a bit of trivia that kind of surprised me. Shawshank Redemption is regarded by many as one of Hollywood's best films and on a lot of people's list as one of their favorite movies of all time (me included). For as good as it is, in 1995 it went O-fer at the Academy Awards. Nada. Zippo.

    Got a piece of trivia you want to share with fellow GIFers? Post it up!

    In the NFL, a "Disaster" plan is used if 15+ players are lost to an accident (cancel teams games, 1st pick in draft, "expansion" draft.)

    He was also hit by a van in the 90's. Near fatal. He bought the van and beat it with a baseball bat before having it crushed.
