  1. The U.S. city with the highest concentration of millionaires is Los Alamos, New Mexico, with 12.4% of households having at least $1 million in assets.  That’s mostly because of all the chemists, engineers, and physicists working at the Los Alamos National Laboratory.
  2. “Beverly Hills, 90210” was originally supposed to be set in Maryland, and be called “Potomac, 20854”.  But executives at Fox decided it should be a place that was more recognizable.
  3. The first athlete ever to get a million-dollar endorsement deal was a bowler.  A champion named Don Carter got a $1 million deal in 1964 to endorse bowling balls from a company called Ebonite.
  4. The tallest building in Vermont is only 124 feet, the Decker Towers in Burlington.  The tallest buildings in Wyoming and South Dakota are also under 200 feet.
  5. Salt Lake City is almost exactly parallel to New York City.  Salt Lake City is at 40 degrees, 46 minutes north latitude, New York City is at 40 degrees, 47 minutes.
