Things learned in 2006…

Saw this as one of the top posts on del.ico.us and thought it was worth sharing: 50 Things We Know Now (That We Didn’t Know This Time Last Year) 2006 Edition.

Among the more random things learned in 2006:

  • Cheese consumption in the United States is expected to grow by 50 percent between now and 2013.
  • At 68.1 percent, the United States ranks eighth among countries that have access to and use the Internet.
  • At least once a week, 28 percent of high school students fall asleep in school, 22 percent fall sleep while doing homework and 14 percent get to school late or miss school because they overslept.
  • The common pigeon can memorize 1,200 pictures.
  • One of the most effective ways for athletes to recover after exercise is to drink a glass of chocolate milk.

The only thing I can think of that’s not on this list… Pluto isn’t a planet after all.
