Terminator : facts you never knew.

1. Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous line in The Terminator "I'll be back" was originally in the script as "I'll come back".

 Near the beginning of the first movie, when Sarah Connor (played by Linda Hamilton) receives a message on her answering machine from a man cancelling a date, the voice on the machine is director James Cameron's. Hamilton and Cameron got married years later but have since divorced.

3. Mel Gibson turned down the role of the Terminator. O.J. Simpson was also considered for the role but the producers thought he was "too nice" to be taken seriously as a cold-blooded killer.

Hot or Not : Facebook

Hot or Not?

Facebook was invented by Harvard computer science student Mark Zuckerberg 
along with classmates Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes. The origins to the name hints as to the history of Facebook, however, the website was originally and briefly called Facemash. Mark Zuckerberg was a second year student, when he wrote the software for the Facemash website. Perhaps, it was Zuckerberg's sophomoric sense of humor that led him to create the site as a type of "hot or not" game for Harvard students, where website visitors could compare two student photos side-by-side and let viewers decide who was "hot" and who was "not". Mark Zuckerberg put his computer science skills to good use by hacking into Harvard's security network and where he copied the student ID images used by the dormitories and used them to populate his Facemash website.
