London's GDP is about equal to that of Saudi Arabia.
All the property in Scotland, Wales and Northen Ireland combined is worth only a fraction of London's.
More than a quarter of London's residents reside below the poverty line.

The most fun I've ever had playing a card game is when I had -8.5 points on purpose.

There are about 400 different types of French cheeses.

Pommes is German for french fries.

The frequency of gun-related violence has steadily decreased in America over the last few decades. In interesting contrast, the frequency of mass public shootings in America has tripled since 2011.

Elephants are the only land-based mammal that can't jump.

According to experts in the field of behavioral psychology, sadism is an acquired taste.
In the early days of the United States of America, some states had their own officially-endorsed churches. The whole "freedom of religion" thing didn't catch on until it had the backing of James Maddison.
The insect, Issus coleoptratus has interlocking gears on its exoskeleton. The gears are used to coordinate the movement of the insect's hind legs for jumps.

You will have to do a lot of waiting. Sloths can't jump. Also anything involving sloths involves waiting. It takes a full minute for a sloth to fall off a five-storey building.

From my looking, there's no confirmation to the Elephant-only factoid, nor disproof. I'll just say that sloths are tree-based instead of land-based and claim that works around it. :D

T-Rated Video Games and PG-13 movies are the most profitable ratings to have, on average.

I would not have guessed that. I suppose the T rating statistic doesn't cover those freemium cell phone games that you don't actually buy. Those don't actually have ratings, do they?

It's a good cross-section of who can play them (kids can't play M-rated games a lot of the time) and how much freedom you have to include content in your game (you can't put a lot of things in rated E games). M-rated video games (as a whole, not just AAA) have a more limited audience apparently?, while the E rating tends to have a problem with shovel-ware...

I don't know about every game, but some freemium games have ratings. For example Hearthstone is rated T for Teen due to "Alcohol Reference, Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes".

League of Legends is rated T for "Blood, Fantasy Violence, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco".

Team Fortress 2 is rated M for "Blood and Gore, Intense Violence".

Heroes of the Storm is rated T for "Crude Humor, Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes".

Star Wars: The Old Republic is rated T for " Blood and Gore, Mild Language, Sexual Themes, Violence".

Warframe is rated M for "Blood and Gore, Violence".

World of Warcraft is rated T for "Blood and Gore, Crude Humor, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol, Violence".

Starcraft II is rated T for "Blood and Gore, Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, Violence".

Some games like Dota 2 don't get a rating due to being :multiplayer-only". No idea why Dota 2 gets no rating but LOL does tbh.

I can't think of more massively popular games I could find a rating for that thrive more on F2P or Subscriptions than an upfront cost.

E rated games make up most of the market, an most of its profits too.

Apparently, and I'm not sure how true this is but I just read this statistic, the most widely hated (as in, we aren't talking about just SOME people hating them) in the Zelda series are Like Likes, followed by Wallmasters.

Nobody knows why the alphabet is in the order it is in. The Latin alphabet we use today has been in almost the same order since before the creation of Latin (it was adopted from the Phoenicians). The symbols have changed drastically, but the ordering has lasted 3000 years.
There have been a handful of Westerners who became samurai. Perhaps most unexpectedly, there was even a black samurai who served Oda Nobunaga.
Ducks can quack multiple times.
Wood can be welded.
