Gone With the Wind. The woman who played Mammy won an Oscar. Forget her name. Hattie someone.

She wasn't allowed to sit in the main part of the arena. She was segregated to the back.
Correct. There were a lot of exceptions made for Hattie McDaniel on that night in 1940, in a racially segregated hotel.

Sydney Poitier was indeed the first Black American to win the Best Actor Oscar for "Lilies of the Field". But, not the first to win the Oscar(he would have been only 13yo). In fact that was his only "Best Actor" Oscar.

This has collapsed in a heap.

In the US civil war one side developed and used a submarine.

Which side?
How long did its career last?

It drowned one crew in training, was left. Resuscitated, new crew, “torpedoes” (mines) prepared and it set sail. It did sink one Union ship but the sub itself sank. No more were built in that war.

Whale shark is the largest fish right now. Bit bigger than the great white.

Adam Liaw’s “Food Show” not getting much inspiration from it—probably due to my present concentration on matters Tasmanian.
