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.

The only Major League Baseball teams with names that don’t end with the letter “s” are the Boston Red Sox and the Chicago White Sox.

The creator of Eudora, the first e-mail software program, was Steve Dorner, a staff member at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  The University not only gave the software away, but Dorner, who was salaried, received no stock options and no royalties on His 1988 creation.

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

  3. imagine if Dorner got even just 1 penny for every email that gets sent. I just looked up and saw that in 2020 there were over 300 billion emails sent. that would be $3 billion dollars in jsut one year. Instead, he’s a curious trivial fact 🙂
