1980s female bodybuilder, Gladys Portugues. You might know her as “Mrs. Jean Claude van Damme.”

The story of how they met is the best, it’s basically the plot of the movie “Borat.” Jean Claude van Damme came to America a penniless immigrant in the 1980s, and on arriving in America within his first month, he immediately tried to find the beautiful American girl he kept on seeing in fitness magazines back in Belgium. He eventually found where she was shooting, showed up uninvited, and despite the fact he was a nobody foreigner who didn’t have a cent to his name, asked her out on a date. They were married a little while later.

And by the way….they’re still together.

Bonus fact, this is van Damme’s first actual credit in a film:

Fun Facts About Rocks!

Amethyst is a variety of quartz!

Obsidian is an igneous rock, meaning it was formed in layers of lava!

Opalite is man made! Although I think a lot of you knew this.

Blue Goldstone/sandstone is actually copper suspended in glass! It’s also manmade!

Mystic topaz is a clear topaz that has been coated to look deep purple and mysterious! The company that came up with this method of coating is called Azotic Coating Inc., in case you’re interested.

Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral, which is formed in stalagmitic formations in caves really deep underground!

Howlite is a borate mineral and was discovered in 1868 near Windsor, Novia Scotia!

Fun fact: Despite the character Borat being vehemently anti-semetic and, to be fair, a total dick, him and his movie are actually incredibly popular in Israel. As it turns out, whenever Borat is supposedly speaking Kazahk, he’s actually just talking mad shit about people in Hebrew, which the actor who plays him, Sacha Baron Cohen, speaks fluently.
