    23. Agent Dale Cooper, of “Twin Peaks”, is named after D.B. Cooper, the only man in history to have successfully hijacked a commercial airliner for a ransom, and escape by parachute (in 1971). Numerous copycats followed, along with major security changes. D.B. Cooper was never found.

    Please stop perpetuating this. The man who is “popularly” referred to as D. B. Cooper bought his ticket under the name “Dan Cooper”. The name “D. B. Cooper” was not associated with the man in any way except mistakenly by the media after the event.
