    Not sure when this study was done, but night crew guys will be happy to know that, according to security firm Symantec, you’re more likely to get a computer virus from a religious site than a porn site. The average number of security threats on religious sites was 115, compared to adult content sites which was around 25. In fact, only 2.4% of adult sites were infected with malware. The researchers hypothesized that porn sites need to generate a profit, so there’s a financial interest in keeping them virus free to encourage repeat business.

    But I have no reason to doubt your credibility, so I'm gonna take a leap of faith and assume that's true. I'm tempted to hit snopes.com to confirm, but not going to!

    Frank Sinatra was offered the role of John McClane in Die Hard that eventually went to Bruce Willis, but it’s not as weird as it sounds, it was due to contractual obligations. Sinatra starred in 1968’s The Detective, based on 1966’s novel of the same name by Roderick Thorp. Die Hard was based on the sequel to The Detective, 1979’s Nothing Lasts Forever and when Sinatra signed on for the first film it was in his contract that the studio had to offer him the main part in the sequel. Of course, since he was in his 70’s by then, he refused the role.
