This Thursday, April 19th is National High Five Day. Observed every year on the third Thursday in April, it's a day to high five everyone that you see. It is believed that during the last regular season Dodger's game in 1977, Dusty Baker and Glenn Burke high fived as Baker rounded third base and headed home making the team the first in history to have four players with at least 30 regular season home runs each. As you cheer your colleagues and family this Thursday for a job well done, give them a high five.

Headphones were created in 1910 by Nathaniel Baldwin in the kitchen of his Utah home. Baldwin only accepted orders of 10 headphones as a time because he was producing them in his kitchen, including orders from the U.S. Navy.
