  1. The National Park system covers 84.6 million acres, or 3.4% of U.S. land.
  2. Mark Twain and Helen Keller were friends.  They met when she was a teenager, and he was already a famous author in his 50s.  And he got his rich friends to help pay for her to go to college.
  3. The oldest paycheck that’s ever been found is from around 3,000 B.C. in a city called Uruk in the Middle East.  And the person was paid in beer.
  4. The first Subway sandwich shop was called “Pete’s Drive In: Super Submarines.”  It opened in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 1965 and was renamed Subway three years later.
  5. The “Twilight” books were originally called “Forks” . . . like the town where the story starts . . . until Stephenie Meyer’s agent convinced her to come up with a catchier title.
