This is a new type of post, which will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing. We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.
Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were classmates at Glenville High in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1934 when they came up with the idea of “Superman.” Four years later, they signed away all rights to DC Comics–for $130.
The word “nerd” was coined by Dr. Seuss in his book, If I Ran the Zoo.
These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
