“Half-heartedness never won a battle.”

—WILLIAM MCKINLEY, U.S. president

One day a man ran into an old friend and asked him if he was still dating his girlfriend Natasha. “No,” replied his friend. “She wasn’t the sharpest knife in the block. A few months ago she decided to ride a horse for the first time. Without any instruction, she hopped on and took off at a full gallop. Everything was fine until she started losing her grip and began sliding off the horse. She tried desperately to hold on, but the horse kept up its pace, and she bounced up and down on the ground, her head within inches of the horse’s pounding hooves. That horse might have killed her if it hadn’t been for the quick-thinking supermarket greeter who ran over and unplugged the thing!”

What number was assigned to the phone installed in the White House in 1879 when Rutherford B. Hayes was president?

Number 1. Hayes rarely used the phone because the only other telephone in Washington, D.C., at the time was at the Treasury Department. And because there were no telephone operators or switchboards, the wires from Hayes’s phone ran from the White House telegraph room, out a window, to the Treasury Department.
