  3. In America, the Sony Walkman was originally called the Sound-About.
  4. Michael Phelps was rated the second best swimmer in the country in his age group when he was 10.  The kid who was number one was Kris Humphries, who went on to become an NBA player and was married to Kim Kardashian for about 12 minutes.
  5. The “step” in words like “stepmother” or “stepchild” doesn’t come from the fact that you’re one step away from being blood related.  It comes from an Old English word spelled “s-t-e-o-p,” which meant “deprived of a relative.”  So orphans were called steopchildren.
