Things I learned lately - 18 February

  • Gene Simmons on behalf of KISS, creates as many types of KISS themed merchandise as possible. One of their latest releases - KISS air guitar strings. It's a bag of air with a KISS header card on top, for $3.99.
  • The waiting list for season's tickets to the Green Bay Packers is 30 years long. Parents typically put their kids on the waiting list as soon as they're born.
  • Michigan's highway 185 is actually a bike path. So it's the only highway cars cannot drive on.
  • El Paso, Texas, is closer to Los Angeles than it is to Houston.
  • The tallest building in Vermont is only 11 stories.
  • Alaska, Hawaii, Maine and Vermont ban outdoor billboards.
  • Maine is the closest state to Africa.
  • Peachtree, a suburb of Atlanta, has 90 miles of roads just for golf carts. 9000 families there have golf carts as their second cars. Kids from the age of 12 drive to school in their golf carts.
  • There are 2 sets of escalators in the entire state of Wyoming.
  • Pelee Island, Ontario, is farther south than the border between Oregon and California.
