You know, there are — there have always been the Ripley Believe It Or Not stories that are actually pretty hard to take, the people who are — have unusual faces or terribly ugly bugs or — Why do you think so many people are fascinated by these bizarre stories?
I mean, how many times did your mother say when you went by something, don't look at that.
Or, don't look at that person. Or go by an accident on the highway and you know you're not supposed to look but you do. And that's exactly the same thing that happens to us today.
I mean, the curiosity is just awesome. You know, Ripley himself, back in , in his very first book, said I don't have any idea if I'm going to be able to do anymore books because I've got so much stuff in here, I don't know if I can find that many believe it or nots.
And we've been putting out books ever since. And we still sit around the table and decide which ones we can't put in the book each year. I mean, the stuff is just awesome and people's — people cannot be satiated enough with the curiosity that we throw out there, even in the time with the computers, the internet, and everything, the TV shows, people still want to turn to Ripley to find the weird.
It's — And I'm not complaining. I love it. O'BRIEN: What gets in the book and what gets on our TV shows and in our museums and so forth, basically it has to be real and it has to be, you know, very genuine, just not something really, really hokey. But it also has to be family oriented.
We take pride in the fact that, you know, all 30 of our Believe It Or Not museums are very family oriented, although there's some real edgy stuff in some of them and some stuff, like you said, isn't really pleasant to look at or to read. But that's basically it.
I mean, we'll take anything from, you know, a potato chip that looks like Mother Teresa to one of the items that we were featuring in this new book is a scale model, a one-tenth scale model of the spaceship Columbia, the space shuttle.
And it is a piece of art that you would love to see. It's — Actually, it's 12 feet long and the wheels turn, the big bay opens, the crane comes out, you look in the window, you see the panel, the seats. I mean, some guy took 22 years to create this. Do you feel like you're in competition with them? Well, same company owns us both. But, yes. Yes, we are in competition with them, specifically about the books. But what — the big difference between the Guinness books and the Believe It Or Not books is the fact that people really try to get into the Guinness book.
They practice, they know they're going to do this, they're going to hold their breath the longest, they're going to run the quickest or whatever. But most of the people that we have in our Ripley's books are there because of what they do or who they are.
You know, it's hard to believe that, you know, like the guy that made the space shuttle, spent 22 years. He obviously was not trying to do that just to get into Ripley's. No, you have to have another motivation for that, yes. O'BRIEN: Yeah, and people that we feature and items that we feature usually are motivated by something other than the fact that they — the people want to see their face and their name in print. As a matter of fact, some people we do get the items from but they don't want to be associated.
No, I did this for fun. Or, this is the collection that my husband had for years. You know, I don't want it anymore, my husband's dead, go ahead and take it but don't give us any credit, just let other people enjoy it. It's a special device that's used by scientists at Scripps Institute of Oceanography sic and it really is spectacular.
And what they do, the scientist takes it — they take it out to where they want to do research and then they start sinking one end of it and what happens is that the one end goes down and forms a platform on the bottom of the ocean and the other end, when it sits upright, is actually a living headquarters for the people. And they go ahead and do their — It's five stories tall, the area that they live in.
And they have boats, and they do everything right off of that — right off of FLIP then when they're ready to come home again, they start pumping the water out, the boat rights itself and they chug on home.
Do you know?
O'BRIEN: For our — Because we're still doing the cartoon and we're still doing the books and we're putting out three different books this year, and we're opening four new museums before — by this time next year. So we're in constant need of a lot of good stuff. And we're lucky because it just keeps coming to us.
But we have a — On our Ripleybooks. And then we'll look at it and then we'll get back to you. It's called "Seeing Is Believing. Post your comments at KPBS. And stay with us for hour two in just a few minutes.
