    The largest bill the US mint ever produced, the $100,000 gold certificate did not have a president on it. The person on the bill was Salmon P. Chase.

    Minted during 1934 and 1935, for the federal reserve to transfer funds between banks there were only 4200 of them.

    After wire transfers made the process of transferring funds physically made them obsotete in 1936 the federal reserve recalled most of them.

    Volvo was so commited to safety that rather than patent their revolutionary seatbelt they allowed other manufacturers to use their design for free.

    Ray Liotta turned down the role of Tony Soprano because he didn't want to do TV.


    Now Ray Liotta is doing Chantix commercials.

    Buzzards in Africa are so glutenous when it comes to eating, they'll eat so much they are too heavy to fly . . .

    They have then been killed by leopards or lions for food.

    On this date in 1903 the New York Highlanders joined Major League Baseball.

    They had formed in Baltimore in 1890 as the Orioles, and would later be called the Yankees.
