trivia 7/22
The brain has as many as 100 billion neurons, and they - along with their thousands of connections to other neurons - are very good at generating electrical impulses; this electrical activity - powered by food, mostly sugar - in the blood, amounts to about 20 watts of power, or about the equivalent of the little light bulb in one's refrigerator.

Jimmy Carter is the only U.S. President who never got the opportunity to nominate a Justice to the Supreme Court.

They were William Henry Harrison, Zachary Taylor and Andrew Johnson.
