10 things I didn’t know last week #200

1. The reminiscence bump is the tendency for older adults to have increased recollection for events that occurred during their adolescence and early adulthood. As a result, we all remember our 20’s as a golden age.

2. Monster Porn. Thanks Luc

3. One business model demystified: $1 billion in gift cards go unredeemed. It’s less than 1% of the total amount.

4. The top 5 countries in the world with the most currently active cell phones are: China: 1.2 billion phones; India: 904 million phones; U.S. 327 million phones; Brazil: 276 million phones; and Russia: 256 million phones.

5. We might not even need to eat pizza, pies and cakes to put us in a better mood – simply drawing them could be enough.

6. No more 4 letters domain name available. Thanks. Chloé

7. Some researchers believe Egyptians build pyramids using huge kites.

8. The term lunatic derives from the Latin lunaticus which originally referred to epilepsy and “madness” as diseases caused by the Moon.

9. Most of the public libraries have hidden rooms called L’Enfer, where indecent books (erotic, violent, polemic) are kept.

10. Beer wasn’t considered alcohol in Russia until 2011.

Your Planning Job looks like Darius Kazemi, without the fun

 

This is Friday.

This is Darius Kazemi:

Most people are lucky if they finish a couple side projects in a year. Last year, Darius Kazemi released 72, averaging one every five days. His projects fall under what he calls “weird internet stuff” — bots that generate random Amazon purchases, surreal metaphors, rap battle lyrics, pickup lines, and everything in between.
