       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 
------------------------------------------------------------ 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

Congratulations to "Susan Luther" who won this week's "Mind
Scrambler". Here was the scrambler:

Only one color, but not one size, 
Stuck at the bottom, yet easily flies. 
Present in sun, but not in rain, 
Doing no harm, and feeling no pain. 
What am I?

ANSWER: A shadow.

Enjoy!
Melissa

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: "Language is the blood of the soul into which 
thoughts run and out of which they grow."

HINT: (1809-1894), One of the best regarded American poets 
of the 19th century

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

The "invention" of language is not known except for 
references in the Bible. It is not known what language Adam 
and Eve spoke. The first mention of different languages is 
the reference to the tower of Babel when different tongues 
were bestowed.

                             *** 

The invention of writing, however, is credited to the 
Sumerians of Mesopotamia in the 4th millennium BC. Their 
descendants, the Sumero-Babylonians, developed the time 
system that we use today: an hour divided into 60 minutes,
which are divided into 60 seconds.

                             *** 

Today, there are more than 2,700 different languages spoken 
in the world, with more than 7,000 dialects. In Indonesia 
alone, 365 different languages are spoken. More than 1,000 
different languages are spoken in Africa.

downright SERIOUS about saving the planet. And he lives his
life that way.

If you're like most you want to do the right thing when it
comes down to living green but are not always sure what you can
do... this DVD collection solves this problem. It's hosted by
Ed Begley, Jr. himself! From recycling to easy every day steps
you can take, you'll be amazed at how a little action leads to
some real conservation.

The most difficult language to learn is Basque, which is 
spoken in north-western Spain and south-western France. It 
is not related to any other language in the world. Mandarin 
is the most spoken language in the world, followed by 
English. But as home language, Spanish is the second most 
spoken in the world.

                             *** 

The youngest language in the world is Afrikaans, spoken by 
South Africans. Dutch and German Protestants fled 
persecution from the Roman Catholic Church in the 17th and 
18th century to settle in the Dutch colony of Cape of Good 
Hope on the southern point of Africa. By the early-20th 
century Afrikaans had developed from Dutch, German and other 
influences into a fully fledged language with its own 
dictionaries.

                             *** 

The smallest country in the world is the Vatican. It also 
is the only country where Latin is the official language.
