  2. Ronald Reagan was a lifeguard in high school and he saved 77 people from drowning.
  3. Michael Jordan got his degree in “cultural geography” from the University of North Carolina, because his backup plan after basketball was to be a weatherman.
  4. The author who wrote “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre” was a German guy named B. Traven, but not really.  That was a pen name and no one is sure of his real name.
