Fun Fact

There's a website that tracks the world's population in real time.


As of 2019, the overall human population is estimated to be more than 7.7 billion people. And if you want to watch that increase in real time, you can tune into the World Population Clock, which shows the upticks and downticks as babies are born and other people die. You can also see the current populations of different countries, including China (1,420,000,000+), India (1,368,000,000+), and the U.S. (329,000,000+).

Reading Fact Illiteracy is a constant problem

The sad part is that according to a UNESCO report from 2006 more than 132 million young people are and will remain for the rest of their lives unable to read. It’s a pretty tragic statistic because as you will see from the list of reading facts below, the benefits of reading are immense.

History Fact

Anyone Seen My Coffee Mug?

The extremely goth Britons of the Ice Age commonly used old human skulls as cups. I repeat: as long as they’re not using them.

Movie/TV Quote

"This is Sparta!"

300 (2006)

Like almost every detail of Zack Snyder's hyper-stylized, pro wrestling vision of ancient history, the line "This is Sparta!," bellowed by Gerard Butler before kicking a Persian messenger into a bottomless pit, was ripped directly from a panel of Frank Miller's graphic novel of the same name. Still, it's tough to totally blame Miller, Butler, or even Snyder for the quote's ubiquity amongst a certain strand of beer-slamming, weight-lifting brutes in the mid-to-late '00s. The quote was featured heavily in the marketing materials, almost instantaneously generating memes, parodies, and remixes on sites like YTMND (RIP). "This is Sparta!" was "a thing" before the movie even came out, celebrated and mocked for its macho gravitas. By the time the line became a punchline in the odious 2008 spoof Meet the Spartans, delivered with a big wad of spit and a giant smirk, the joke was already dead.
