Space Shuttle Challenger Breaks Apart

Seventy-three seconds into its launch, the Space Shuttle Challenger disintegrated, killing everyone on board. Investigators concluded that an O-ring—a rubber seal located in the right booster engine—had failed due to cold weather at the time of launch, causing a chain reaction that led to the orbiter's ultimate disintegration. The tragic event was captured on film, and many children viewed the launch live because schoolteacher Christa McAuliffe was on board.

St. Charlemagne's Day

Charlemagne wasn't actually a saint at all; he was an emperor and the first ruler of the Holy Roman Empire, crowned in 800 by Pope Leo III. Although he was never able to read and write himself, Charlemagne, whose name means "Charles the Great," founded the University of Paris. In fact, his reign was marked by a huge cultural revival, including significant advances in scholarship, literature, and philosophy. He died on January 28, 814.

Preemies Slower to Pair Up Later in Life

Studies have already suggested that babies born prematurely often grow up to be cautious individuals, and now, Finnish scientists have linked that tendency directly to love and sex. By comparing questionnaires from "preemies" now in their twenties with those filled out by peers born at full-term, the researchers found that preemies were 20 percent less likely to have ever lived with a significant other, and 24 percent less likely to be sexually active. Neonatologists, however, maintain that other factors, such as maternal income and education, are the best predictor of children's future health and welfare

If You Were Born Today, January 28

You are highly idealistic and a bit of a perfectionist. You have excellent instincts and generally can size up a person or a situation quickly and quite accurately. While gentle and considerate overall, you do have a dominant or "rule the roost" side, and you can be quite stubborn. You are also very patient and strategic when you need to be, but you have little patience for close-minded people. You are clever and charismatic, with a flair for the dramatic. Famous people born today: Alan Alda, Elijah Wood, James Larkin, Nick Carter, Sarah McLachlan.

Things to Ponder 

Why do you park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?

Why do you have a hot-water heater when you don't need to heat hot water?

Why is an orange an orange and an apple not a red?

Why is a pear called a pear when there is only one?

What do they pack styrofoam in?

Is grass really greener on the other side?

Do boxer shorts box?
If Corn Oil comes from Corn, what does Baby Oil come from?

If nothing sticks to Teflon, how do you get Teflon to stick to a pan?

Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and

Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

Why are there floatation devices under plane seats instead of parachutes?

Why are cigarettes sold in gas stations when smoking is prohibited there?

Do you need a silencer if you are going to shoot a mime?

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

How does the guy who drives the snow plow get to work?

Why do you wear a pair of panties and only one bra?
If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, why are there locks on the doors? If you are driving at the speed of light and you turn on your headlights, what happens? You know how most packages say "Open here." What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else?" Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship it's called cargo? Why is it that when you are driving and looking for an address, you turn the radio down? Why don't sheep shrink when it rains? Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
