Things I learned lately - 12 Dec

  • In Berlin, there's an Uber for escorts, called Peppr.
  • Uruguay gets 94.5% of its electricity from renewables.
  • Hans Island, which sits in the Kennedy Channel separating Canada from Greenland, is in dispute between Canada and Denmark. The militaries of both countries periodically visit to remove the other guy’s flag and leave a bottle of Danish schnapps or Canadian whisky. Under the terms of a 2005 agreement, both countries have agreed to inform the other before they visit.
  • There are only 29 McDonald's in North Dakota. There are 1,492 in California. China and Japan have more, with 2,142 and 3,093 respectively. But the entire US has 14,339.
  • Almond milk only has 1/8th the amount of protein as cow's milk.
  • The city judged 'most livable' in 2015 is Melbourne.
