This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

Many of the coffee bars inside the CIA and other top-secret United States government buildings are staffed by blind people, although this has as much to do with a very successful employment drive as it does national security.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
