Weekly Facts #1


Some think on the one dollar bill in the U.S. that there’s an owl in the upper left-hand corner of the 1 and a spider hidden at the upper right-hand corner.  According to the Bureau of Engraving and printing, this is not intentional and a coincidental part of the printing process.


pizzaWe’ve all heard of the fat American.  Americans love to eat.  They do exist.  The country ranked #12 by World Health Organization (WHO) with 36.2 percent of Americans being obese in 2018.  This translates to Americans eating an average of 18 acres of pizza every day.  This means pizza taking up about 18 football fields.  That’s way too much cheese and pepperoni.  Even if it’s made with a cauliflower crust and vegan cheese, still too much pizza.


Here’s one for all the science people.  A raisin dropped in a glass of champagne will bounce up and down because of carbonation.  The raisin gets air pockets stuck in the wrinkles of the raisins.  The bubbles pop on the top, creating the raisin to fall into the glass.  Loads of fun for all you wine drinkers.


Barbie’s life-size measurements would be 39-23-33, stand seven feet and two inches tall, and her neck would be twice the size of a normal neck.  According to the CDC in 2013 (a little outdated, I know), the average height of a female is 64.29 inches or 5.35 feet tall at age 19 and the average size waist was 33.62 in inches.  Think what you want, but from what I hear people like a little meat on a woman’s bones.
