The Triple Tragedy Of The Misfits Of Science

Misfits of Science is an American science fiction comedy-drama television series that aired on NBC from October 4, 1985, to February 21, 1986. Although the show only lasted 1 season and 16 episodes, it’s only my childhood favourites and it should have been more successful. It starred Dean Paul Martin, Kevin Peter Hall, Mark Thomas Miller, a very young Courtney Cox, Jennifer Holmes (she was only in 7 episodes), Max Wright (just before he joined ALF) & Diane Civita. It’s about a group of super-powered humans, and later inspired the tv show Heroes, (same writer). It was a lot of fun.

Dr. Billy Hayes, the leader of the team (who has no superpowers). He is a young research scientist at the Humanidyne Institute who specializes in “human anomalies” and his boyish enthusiasm who often gets the team into as much trouble as he gets them out of. He like Jane Miller has no superpower but his thinking always finds a way out. Dr. Elvin “El” Lincoln, Billy’s colleague and close friend. He has the ability to shrink for minutes at a time from his height of 7 ft 4 in (224 cm) to 11 in (28 cm) via hormonal treatments which he activates by pressing a nerve on the back of his neck. ¬†Johnny “Johnny B” Bukowski, a¬†rock and roll musician who was electrically shocked on stage which resulted in disturbing electrical powers. He continually drains any electrically charged items in his surroundings, forcing him to live in isolation. He wears sunglasses because his eyes glow when he is fully charged. He can throw lightning bolts forcefully and run at superhuman speed, but is vulnerable to water.

Gloria Dinallo, a troubled telekinetic teenager with a history of juvenile delinquency and a mother in a mental institution who claims Gloria’s father is from outer space. She has a crush on Johnny. Gloria can only use her telekinesis on things that she can see: using a blindfold on her renders her powerless. ¬†Jane Miller, Gloria’s¬†probation officer. Although attracted to Billy, she is often put off by his eccentric behavior. Her character appears only in the earlier episodes, disappearing after the first 7 episodes. Dick Stetmeyer, the uptight director of the Humanidyne Institute & Miss Nance, the scientists’ secretary, who is more interested in working on her nails and coffee breaks, round out the characters.

Dean Paul Martin died in 1987 in a snowstorm up in the mountains. Kevin Peter Hall, who would later portray The Predator in two films and Harry in Harry & The Hendersons, would later died due to AIDS related pneumonia in 1991. In 1991, Mark Thomas iIller was in a disfiguring accident that stalled his career, so he became a building contractor specializing in home remodeling for the handicapped, which he did until 2003. Mark made a minor attempt at reviving his career by performing with the Groundling Improv Group, but soon found out that he had lost the patience required for the business of acting. In 2003, he started a product engineering and development company.

16 Fun Facts About Dominos’s Pizza

In 1960, brothers Tom and James Monaghan purchased an old pizza restaurant in Ypsilanti, Michigan called DomiNick’s. The restaurant became “Domino’s Pizza, Inc” in 1965, a title invented by¬†delivery driver Jim Kennedy.

Just eight months after the grand opening, founding brother James Monaghan traded his half of the partnership for an old Volkswagen Beetle that the brothers originally used to deliver pizzas.

For the majority of their existence, Domino’s offered only¬†two sizes¬†of pizza, 11 toppings, and one soft drink, cola.

They also only offered pizza on a delivery or carry-out basis. They believed the simplicity of their menu resulted in higher-quality products and more efficient business.

They also only offered pizza on a delivery or carry-out basis. They believed the simplicity of their menu resulted in higher-quality products and more efficient business.

The original Domino’s building was too small for sit-down dining. Instead, Tom Monaghan¬†hired local laid-off factory workers to deliver pizzas around town.

According to a 2013 Food Beast article, Domino’s introduced their first vegan pizza in Israel. Instead of dairy cheese, the pizza comes topped with soy cheese and veggies.

In 2018, Domino’s repair trucks began filling potholes across the US. Although the chain said they just wanted to keep pizza deliveries running smoothly, many perceived the stunt as¬†oddly dystopian.

In 2018, Domino’s offered a lifetime of free pizza to Russian fans who got a tattoo of the chain’s logo. Unfortunately, they had to end the competition after too many people rushed to get tatted. Instead, they offered free pizza to the first 350 people to share their ink online.

Amid a slew of criticisms including claims that their crust tasted like cardboard, Domino’s completely did away with their old pizza recipe. After a long period of decline, 2009 and beyond saw the chain experience a successful pizza renaissance with a brand new taste.

As of April 2018, Domino’s is the fifth most popular pizza chain in the United States. It falls just after Pizza Ranch, Papa Murphy’s, Marco’s Pizza, and Papa John’s.

As of the end of 2017, India had the second most Domino’s locations in the world. The country is currently home to 1,126 restaurants and counting.

In the¬†US alone, Domino‚Äôs delivers over one million pizzas every day. Domino‚Äôs delivery drivers cover¬†10 million¬†miles each week‚ÄĒthe same distance it would take to make 14 trips to the moon and back.
