Useless fact of the day

Empire State Building: Official Internet Site

Useless fact of the day...the Empire State Building is 75 years old today and will shine white lights tonight. Why white light? The lights were shining white 75 years ago tonight on opening night on New York City's most popular tower.

The second useless fact of the day. Betty Lou Oliver, an elevator operator, survived a 75 floor plunge in her elevator after a plane crashed into Empire State Building. The elevator plunge holds the Guiness Book of World Records for the longest elevator plunge with someone on board actually surviving. More on this plunge here.
