* Quiz: Guess famous SNL quotes from just an image or GIF.

* Story about George Orwell’s race to finish 1984 before he died.

* Ryan Leaf sabotaged his chances to get drafted by the Colts with the first pick.

* Everything that happened in Dr. Strangelove could actually have happened in real life.
