today I learned:
- legalizing direct-to-consumer car sales would reduce the average price by over $3000
- boys in the top third in terms of IQ are about 50 percent more likely than the bottom third to have used drugs such as amphetamines and ecstasy when older.
- the offspring of two sets of identical twins are legally cousins but genetically siblings.
- as a child, stephen colbert suppressed his southern accent to avoid the stereotypes of southerners he saw on tv. he practiced by trying to imitate news anchors.
