Hello all- Like most people, I am full of absolutely useless but interesting information. I figured it would be neat to have a thread where people can post an interesting but true piece of trivia that most others may not be aware of. Let me kick off the thread with a few trivial pieces off the top of my head: -Ben Franklin's first book, published right before The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, was entitled Fart Proudly. ... and it meant exactly as it sounds. The book was intended to extoll the virtues of being yourself. -The Carrier Dome, displayed proudly in my sig and home of the Syracuse Orangemen, is named after Carrier Corp, the largest manufacturer of Air Conditioners in the world. The Carrier Dome does not have air conditioning. -The NY Yankees were previously the NY Highlanders in the early 20th Century for a couple of years. Previous to being the Highlanders, the team was located in Baltimore, MD where they played as the Baltimore Orioles , winners of 3 consecutive championships in 1894-1896.
