JOHN GLEN  

Answer: John Glenn became the first American astronaut to orbit the earth when he flew the Mercury-Atlas 6 named Friendship 7 for three earth orbits in 1962, and the first astronaut elected to Congress when he won a Senate seat in 1974. He's been the most successful American Astronaut-politician thus far, serving 25 years in the Senate. In 1984, Glenn sought the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. He withdrew from the race after winning only two delegates and finishing in 6th place. Glenn returned to space in 1998 aboard Space Shuttle Discovery while still a sitting Senator. The next year he retired from Congress.

STADUIM LIGHTS

Answer: On this day in 1988, the Chicago Cubs hosted the first night game in the history of Wrigley Field. The first-ever big league night game in professional baseball took place 50 years earlier in Cincinnati, Ohio. Over the next 13 seasons, the rest of the major league parks followed suit, with one exception, Wrigley Field. For 74 seasons, the Cubs played only day games at home. Finally, on August 8, 1988, the Cubs played the Philadelphia Phillies in the park’s first night game. Ninety-one-year-old Cubs fan Harry Grossman was chosen to turn on the lights. After counting to three, he flipped the switch, and announced “Let there be light.”

SON OF SAM

Answer: On this day in 1977, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz is arrested and charged with being the “Son of Sam,” the serial killer who terrorized New York City for more than a year, killing six young people and wounding seven others with a .44-caliber revolver. The killing spree terrorized New Yorkers and achieved worldwide notoriety. After his arrest, Berkowitz claimed that demons and a black Labrador retriever owned by a neighbor named Sam had ordered him to murder attractive young women. Berkowitz has been incarcerated since his arrest and is serving six consecutive life sentences.

Who coined the word "nerd"?

Dr Seuss

DR. SEUSS

dgrimm60

Answer: Nerd is a descriptive term, often used to describe a person that is overly intellectual, obsessive, or lacking social skills. The word nerd was first used in the 1950 Dr. Seuss book "If I Ran the Zoo", in which a nerd was one of the many oddly named creatures in the titular zoo. The slang meaning of the term dates to the next year, 1951, when Newsweek magazine reported on its popular use as a synonym for "drip" or "square" in Detroit, Michigan. By the early 1960s, usage of the term had spread throughout the United States, and even as far as Scotland.
