Uma mão cheia de informações absolutamente inúteis que não tínhamos há um ano (e que, para dizer a verdade, não nos faziam falta nenhuma):

«Devout Orthodox Jews are three times as likely to jaywalk as other people, according to an Israeli survey reported in the New Scientist. The researchers say it's possibly because religious people have less fear of death.»

«One in 10 Europeans is allegedly conceived in an Ikea bed.»

«The = sign was invented by 16th Century Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde, who was fed up with writing "is equal to" in his equations. He chose the two lines because "noe 2 thynges can be moare equalle".»

«Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has only been in an English pub once, to buy his wife cigarettes.»

«Australians host barbecues at polling stations on general election days.»

Estes e outros 95 dados fundamentais para o avanço da modernidade dissecados ao longo do ano pela BBC Magazine. Obrigado pelo vosso árduo trabalho, lads!
