The voice of the powerful machine from “The Terminator” movies has been a cultural icon ever since the first movie appeared on silver screens. Arnold’s heavy, imposing voice has been mimicked, mocked, and repeated time after time, but despite having all the language skills to dub himself, The Schwarz wasn’t allowed to add his voice to the German version of the movie.
Dialects are tricky things, with people taking certain information from different voices. Imagine an angel coming down from heaven and talking with a heavy niche accent. It would be a bit strange, right? Well, that’s sort of what Arnold ran into with this situation.
Huh. How About That
This is one of the hilarious times when they underpromised and overproduced. Ballard was being financed by the U.S. Navy to find the wrecks of two Navy submarines, the USS Scorpion and the USS Thresher, which both sank in the sixties. They hadn't intended to find the Titanic at all.
He discovered that the submarines had imploded due to the depth, and left a debris trail. After finding the subs, Ballard surmised that the Titanic would have done the same, and so hunted for another debris trail for the Titanic, eventually coming up with one of the biggest finds of the century.
Lady of the Sky
Working in housekeeping is important, but there are plenty of people doing it who have plenty of skills elsewhere. Though not many of them have hidden talents when it comes to astronomy, as Williamina Fleming apparently did. Chances are she was in charge of managing the team while the team did the heavy lifting.
Fleming started doing part-time administrative work, though she learned from Edward Charles Pickering who taught her how to analyze stellar spectra. She became the founding member of an all-women cadre of human computers hired by Pickering to compute mathematical classifications and edit publications.
He's Truly Breathtaking
It's hard not to like Keanu Reeves. Whether you got to know him from his early movies, loved him in “The Matrix,” or can't keep rewatching the "John Wick" series, there's a lot to like. One of those things is, apparently, his giving nature. He wants the movies he's in to be the best they can be, and if that means giving up part of his paycheck to bring in the experts, that's fine with him.
He's apparently also been the kind of guy who will happily negotiate himself down during contract talks to give more money to people like special effects and makeup crews. It's been thought he's donated hundreds of million dollars to various charities. What a guy.
He Was One of the Best
Rack your brain and try to come up with something who was kinder, sweeter, and gentler than Mr. Fred Rogers. We dare you. Maybe in the annals of history, there is someone who could match up to him, but in the last hundred years, he's in a league of his own.
Whether it's getting to become good friends with a random limo driver, answering each piece of fan mail himself, or getting his car back after thieves stole it – though this one is in dispute – stories cement him as a man with a nearly bottomless heart. Kids and adults of all ages loved his show for the lessons and fun it provided, and of course, the man was irreplaceable.
