When West is trying to toss the rock in the bucket to get at the rope, Gordon mentions that it could make a good game that could be called "bucketball". In 1891, Dr. James Naismith of Springfield College in Springfield MA realized Artie's vision using a peach basket. Dr. Naismith's journal notes that he was concerned, as a number of similar games had been tried and had failed, making it possible that some form of it had been existence in the 1870s (that same journal mentions that Naismith's "Basket Ball" was influenced by a children's game called "Ducks on a Rock" which dates back to the Middle Ages).

The Secretary of State is constantly being mentioned as the immediate successor to the United States Presidency after the President and Vice-President. This is incorrect and has always been. In the 1870s, succession was determined by the Presidential Succession Act of 1792, in which the Senate president pro tempore was next in line after the vice president to succeed to the presidency, followed by the Speaker of the House. (The order succession would change in 1887 and 1947.) See more
