- Last year, just 5% of the plastic waste consumed in the U.S. was recycled back into plastic. The remainder was sent to landfills around the country. Rates for glass were a little better, at 31% . . . and 50% of cans were recycled. But nothing can match cardboard’s recyclability, which hovers annually between 90% and 91%.
- The reason so many Asian countries have names that end in “stan” is because it’s an ancient Persian word for “homeland” or “country.”
- Lil Wayne was a straight-A student.
- James Doohan, who played Scotty on “Star Trek”, fought in World War Two with the Canadian military and he was shot six times on D-Day in Normandy.
- The Caesar salad comes from Tijuana, Mexico. It was created by an Italian immigrant named Caesar Cardini at a restaurant he owned there.
