Things I learned lately - 5 Aug

  • Google Drive now hosts more than 2,000,000,000,000 files (trillion).
  • Statistically, people who swear are more honest.
  • You can buy jeans at Nordstom's that look like you've been working a real dirty job. They're called Barracudas and they'll set you back $425. There's a matching jacket too. A costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic.
  • Robot security guards are a thing now.
  • Most of the top executives of oil companies around the world expect the demand for oil to peak anywhere from 2020 to sometime in the late 2020s, thanks to the expected proclivity of electric car sales. After that, oil demand should decline and that spells trouble for the industry. 
  • India plans to shift to all electric cars by 2030.
