Here are your Fun Facts for today:

1.  The U.S. has more millionaires than Sweden has people.  There are more than 10.2 million American households that now have a net worth over $1 million, versus just under 10 million people in Sweden.

2.  The Hoover Dam is made of 4.36 million cubic yards of concrete.  That's enough to make a highway from San Francisco to New York.

3.  Cans of Diet Coke float in water but cans of Coke sink.  It's because the sugar in Coke weighs 39 grams and the sweetener in Diet Coke is 125 milligrams, that makes Coke denser, so it sinks.

4.  The college with the most national football championships is: Princeton, with 28.  They were winning most of them in the late 1800s, long before most other schools were competing.

5.  The first "Star Wars" product ever produced was the novelized version of the movie.  That book came out in 1976, six months before the movie was in theaters.
