Congrats you two:pinkiehappy:

Actually, these were the VAs for Mickey and Minnie (Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor) who took over from the 80s til Wayne’s death in 2009 and Russi’s death in 2019. Yes they were married and happily so. Also they were narrowly the longest standing VAs for Mickey and Minnie to date!

2. Chainsaws were invented for aid during childbirth. Yikes!

Heavy metal C-sections, here we come. :fluttershbad:

3. Paper bags are worse for the environment than plastic ones.

That's interesting. Why is this is the case?

Paper bags are worse for the environment than plastic ones

Really? I thought plastic is made of oil which would spew carbon dioxide if burnt.

The sinking of the Titanic was predicted in 1898 - 13 years before it sank - in a novel.

I'm guessing the author knew the North Atlantic Ocean is next to the Arctic, meaning that icebergs had been floating their way south where they can come into contact with ships after regularly break off the glaciers.

5. The voice actors for the original Mickey and Minnie Mouse got married.

Method acting took a whole new level here.

Sometimes I worry if these facts I find are 100% accurate. Good to know I was close enough!

The process of making paper requires the constant destruction of trees which ruins entire ecosystems quite quickly. Furthermore, gases and chemicals are released into the air as paper mills shred, bleach, treat, and press pulp into paper. :pinkiesmile:

Hey, if it works, more power too em!

Yep! Honestly it's no wonder that the couple were named Disney Legends in 2008. That's over 20 years of experience for Wayne Allwine and [over 30 for] Russi Taylor.

That's true, and the paper-making process releases far more greenhouse gasses. But I wonder if it's just the short-term damage that's worse, cause plastic bags will stick around for a hell of a long time. It would be best if we just used our own cloth bags and invested more into biodegradable plastic.
