The largest city in the world at every point in time for the past 5000 years. The following cities have at one time or another been the world's largest:
  • Cordova
  • Cairo
  • Istanbul
  • Rome
  • Baghdad
Istanbul was the largest city in the world at four different times in history, the first period being from 340 to 570 AD and the last being 1650-1710.
  • Actually, it should be noted that their definition of a city is not clear. According to many lists, Tokyo is nowhere near the largest city in the world. It is not listed in the top 10. The Tokyo area, however, is considered to be the world's most populous urban area, so the ranking hinges on the definition of a city.

Family Guy: Unaired Pilot
  • "The complete un-aired 15 minute Family Guy episode made for preview purposes to convience Fox to pick-up the show. The pilot follows a similar story to that of 'Death Has A Shadow' and despite poor animation due to a low budget, it impressed Fox enough to greenlight the show."

Growing Wikipedia revises its 'anyone can edit' policy
  • "Wikipedia is the online encyclopedia that 'anyone can edit.' Unless you want to edit the entries on Albert Einstein, human rights in China or Christina Aguilera."
  • "The list changes rapidly, but as of yesterday, the entries for Einstein and Ms. Aguilera were among 82 that administrators had protected from all editing, mostly because of repeated vandalism or disputes over what should be said. Another 179 entries--including those for George W. Bush, Islam and Adolf Hitler--were semi-protected, open to editing only by people who had been registered at the site for at least four days."

Daily Box Office for Friday, June 16, 2006
  • Nacho Libre and Tokyo Drift opened a bit better than expected. They were expected to finish 2-3 behind Cars, but actually finished 1-2 on Friday, pushing Cars to the #3 spot.
  • Lake House was about on target.
  • Garfield disappointed. Analysts had it pegged for the #4 slot, ahead of Lake House. It not only trailed Lake House by a 2-1 margin, but lost the #5 slot to The Break-Up
