           TRIVIA TODAY - Tuesday, May 20, 2008 
       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 


Greetings Infomaniacs,

Well, regular gas just topped four dollars a gallon here. 
However, if you are Greg Losh of Selma Indiana you don't 
have to worry about that. The Indiana man is capitalizing 
on high crude oil prices with his own oil well - in his 
back yard. 

Greg says it comes from the Trenton oil field that fuelled 
growth in east-central Indiana more than a century ago. 

He says it costs about $100,000 to drill an oil well, but 
that at today's prices, it's worth it.

Enjoy!

                    Thank you Ms. Jacobs   

Mary Phelps Jacob - received the first patent for a bra in 
1914. Her corset - replete with whaleback bones was visible 
under a brand new evening gown she purchased. She used 
handkerchiefs and ribbon to replace the bones. She sold the 
patent to Warner Brothers Corset Company in Bridgeport, 
Connecticut, for $1,500.
