today I learned: in north korea, the number of internet users is only 605 (0.00%). also, in parts of africa, the only drinkable water available comes from coca cola and they charge more for water than their pop. wow. next, jack white from the white stripes only records in analog and edits his tapes manually with a razor blade (I did some research to find out why, and it is because he likes the challenge, saying ‘things are more exciting when they’re on the verge of breaking’. he likes having limitations because it pushes the envelope of creativity). HOKAY! FINALLY! the reason the toronto maple leafs are not called the maple “leaves” is because the name was chosen to honour the maple leaf regiment of world war I. as the regiment is a proper noun, its plural is maple leafs (not maple leaves). NOW YOU KNOW.
