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.

The Grammy Award-winning “Killing Me Softly With His Song” was written about singer-songwriter Don McLean, although the song referenced in the title was not his classic “American Pie,” but the track “Empty Chairs,” which was released on the flip side of that single.

If you want to make a room as bright as the sun, try collecting 14,286,000,000 fireflies.

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