Factoid watch

Here are three things I've seen in passing recently. All via Kottke.org
  1. Imagine a cube - each side is 25 metres long. You could fit all of the gold in the world into it. Probably.
  2. There are more slaves in the world now than at any point in human history.
  3. We are not dumbing down. Quite the opposite.

I decided to tag posts that referred to various comparative global measurements 'Best in the world index' a while ago. Probably not the ideal choice in retrospect...
