… that today is Leave It to Beaver’s Birthday? In 1957, the TV comedy Leave It to Beaver premiered on CBS. The first toilet “tank” ever shown on a TV show was on Leave It to Beaver. In 1957 the networks were squeamish enough about displaying a bathroom on television, let alone an actual toilet. After several rounds of wrangling between the network and the production company, a compromise was reached: The episode could include shots of a toilet tank, but not the toilet itself. Problem solved! 😉

The median hourly pay with tip for Uber drivers in the U.S. is $14.73, according to a new study conducted by Ridester, a publication that focuses on the ride-hail industry. That figure includes tips but doesn’t account for expenses like insurance, gas and car depreciation incurred while working.
