There are a lot of things I wonder about, as all my readers know. But then in real life, I keep running across things that I really wonder about. So, I looked up a few of them to try to get some answers:
Most of us have grown up with a TV in the house, so maybe you are like me and wonder why there is no channel one. So, why isn't there a channel 1? Well, according to: http://www.totallyuselessknowledge.com/history.php
the FCC assigned the channel one frequency to mobile services like two-way radio and taxicabs. BTW, the rest of the stuff following is from this same website.
Did you know that Winston Churchill was born in a ladies' room during a dance? Those English are a tough breed for sure.
Abraham Lincoln's mother died when the family dairy cow ate white snakeroot and Ms. Lincoln drank the milk. Apparently it didn't agree with her.
Annie Oakley, the sure shot who performed in the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, was never further west than Ohio.
My home town of Butler, PA was where the first Jeep was made. The first ones were not called that, it was a "general purpose" vehicle, shortened to GP, pronounced "jeep".
Clans of long ago, to rid the area of unwanted people, burned the unwanted peoples' houses down. That is where the word "fired" came from. A way to get rid of an unwanted employee.
Before indoor plumbing, some places had two outhouses, one for the men and one for the women. The one for the men had a half moon and the one for women had a star. Now, I am wondering why we still see the half moon but never the star? At least I haven't seen any with a star.
I think that is enough useless facts for today and I sure do hope you all have a great day, you hear?
