Who knew that there used to be pretty heavy restrictions on what women could wear in Congress? It wasn't until 1993 that pants became an acceptable article of clothing for women legislators. This is despite the fact that, in 1969, Charlotte Reid became the first woman to boldly don a pair of trousers onto the floor. When asked about it later, she said then-Minority Leader Gerald Ford told her he thought it was great and she should do it more often. Also, did you know that Bill Gates took advantage of software glitches in middle school? He and Paul Allen lost computer privileges after obtaining free computer time from the company they worked for; however, they were allowed back into the lab when they offered to debug program as well. Talk about turning lemons into lemonade! On a different note, stadiums have come a long way since their ancient Roman counterparts - which is probably a good thing seeing as how 20,000 people died during one sporting event. The tragedy occurred during a crowded gladiator game at Fidenae Stadium (8 miles north of Rome) in 27 AD when cheap wooden stadium collapsed. Needless to say, this disaster led the Senate to require stadiums be inspected and certified before use.
