“New Mars Calendar, Skype’s Long Name and One Line Alaska”

If we ever settle on Mars, we’ll need to use a different calendar based on the length of dates and years there.  A year is 24 months of 27 or 28 days each. 

Skype’s name is a shortened version of its original name, “Sky Peer-to-Peer.”  The people who created it originally wanted to shorten it to “Skyper,” but that domain name was taken.

The only state you can type with one row of keys on the keyboard is Alaska.
