Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spoke eight languages fluently; she was exposed to six of them before she was six.

According to USA Today, only 8% of computer failures due to the Y2K problem will occur at midnight, Dec. 31, 1999. The majority of Y2K problems will take the following two years to surface. ATMs are the least likely computer failure expected.
