I found out today . . .

. . . that the smell of an orange is a stress reducer (according to a study at Brown University).
. . . the original name for butterfly was flutterby.
. . . the average number of people airborne over the US any given hour: 61,000.
. . . Barack Obama has 20 speech writers.

Have a great rest-of-the-week.

That is very interesting info! I love all of your fun facts! Crazy that Obama has that many speech writers, yet there's still so much plagiarism...

i read that obama has three speech writers, one chief writer that is in charge of only two others.

Will, I heard that deal about Obama having 20 speech writers today on the Paul Harvey show on WBAP (820 AM) Of course, it has to be right since it was on the radio -- ha ha.
