Things I learned lately 29 Mar

  • A Russian athlete at the Olympics in South Korea who wore a shirt that said "I don't do doping" tested positive for doping.
  • "I'm a slave 4 U" was offered to Janet Jackson, who passed.
  • Pharrell's "Happy" was also recorded by Cee-Lo Green, but he never released it.
  • Stainless steel is actually a name for a wide range of steels, but they all have one thing in common: chromium, from about 10-30%, depending on the type. The chromium on the surface of stainless steel bonds with oxygen in the air to form a layer of chromium-oxide, which is what gives stainless steel its very hard, shiny appearance, and makes it resistant to corrosion. If it’s damaged or scarred, the chromium re-bonds with oxygen, and a new layer forms, so it’s self-repairing.
  • To keep the exposed edge of a cut cake fresh, pin a slice of bread against the edge with a toothpick and it won't get stale.
  • Fedex has more planes than Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways combined. Fedex has 650 planes in the air over the course of every day.
