John Joseph "Jack" Nicholson is 80 years old today.

Jack Nicholson was raised believing his maternal grandparents
were his parents and his mother was his sister. He did not find
out the truth until a TIME magazine journalist informed him in
1974. During high school, he was voted class clown and served
an entire year’s worth of afternoons in detention.

worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It
was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth
Day Network
, and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.

Each year, Earth Day — April 22 — marks the anniversary of what many
consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. It
capitalized on the emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of
the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns
front and center.
The idea came to Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson,
then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin.
