Anyways I thought it would be an interesting, fun thread...
Hope to read your 'Did you know's'...
Civility and discretion of words would be highly appreciated by all I would imagine. Correct?

Did you know Gerry Sandusky is another man and gets death threats due to that other dirtbag. How sad. Says he will not dishonor his father's name and change it. Say's he'll do what is necessary to protect his good name and his family.

Some have others with the same name. I know there are 5 others with mine except for this middle name. Wow, did I have a witch of a time trying to set up my email account.

The $ sign was designed in 1788 by Oliver Pollock, a New Orleans businessman, using a combination of Spanish money symbols.

The $ sign is used in many countries other than the United States, including the use for the Argentine peso, Brazilian real, Cape Verde escudo, Chilean peso, Colombian peso, Cuban peso, Dominican peso, Mexican peso, Tongan pa’anga and Uruguayan peso. Other countries that trade in their currency as dollars are Australia, Bahamas, Canada, Liberia and others

If you stack one million US$1 bills, it would be 110m (361 ft) high and weight exactly 1 ton. A million dollars’ worth of $100 bills weighs only 10 kg (22 lb). One million dollars’ worth of once-cent coins (100 million coins) weigh 246 tons.
