Things I learned lately 9 Mar

  • 36.7% of passenger car sales in Norway are for all-electric cars. That's not a typo.
  • All US Disney theme parks are now in Google Street View. That just saved y'all big bucks. You're welcome.
  • It is a myth that it's OK to eat raw hot dogs because they're pre-cooked. According to the FDA, it's very important to cook them until they're steaming hot. That's because they can become contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. It's a miracle that we survived childhood.....
  • The record high at the south pole is -12.3C or 9.9F.
  • During Antarctic winter (North American summer), normal flights can't land there due to the darkness and extreme cold (-55C). So, residents are isolated from February until November every year, except for medical emergencies.
  • Google Lens will be coming soon to iOS. It's designed to be a visual search engine, which means, point your camera at something and Google will use that iamge to search what you're seeing. It will also be able to read.
  • In the US, 25% of households earn 6 figures. 22% of households earn less than $25,000 annually.
