    Default Monday: USA Trivia

    Well, I've lost track of what part this is, so I'm just posting more

    Interesting USA Facts:

    - The Empire State building has its own zip code. 10118

    Attachment 149241

    The only other 4 US buildings that have their own zip code are: The White House (20500). Dodger Statium (90090). Focus on the Family Campus (80995). Willis (Sears) Tower (60606).

    - President Jimmy Carter had solar panels installed on the White House, but his successor, President Ronald Reagan, had them removed.

    - There are more than 70 streets in Atlanta with some variation of the name " Peachtree."

    Attachment 149243

    - The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office has its own quirky gift shop called Skeletons in the Closet.

    Attachment 149244. Attachment 149245

    - The Library of Congress contains approximately 838 miles of bookshelves—long enough to stretch from Houston to Chicago.

    Attachment 149246

    - If Texas were its own country, it would have the 10th largest GDP in the world.

    Sad the solar panels were removed. Just think of all the electricity that could have been saved.
