KRISTEN'S PICK - WINNER
Shopping on the toilet …
A new survey has revealed that nearly half of us will be doing our Christmas shopping this year … on the toilet. Yep, according to the 2017 PayPal Money Habits survey, 80% of Americans plan to shop from their mobile devices this season, and 46% said they’ll be shopping while sitting on the john – a 24% increase from last year. A few more stats: 49% say they will be Christmas shopping in bed … with their significant other sleeping right next to them. 42% will do their shopping at the office. (Moneyish)
SOMEONE FIGURED OUT HOW LONG AGO STAR WARS TOOK PLACE
While most movie fans know that the movie Star Wars took place "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away," very few of them knew just how long ago that was … until now.
Patrick Johnson, the author of a book called The Physics of Star Wars, took a look at when the first galaxies were formed, crunched the numbers and calculated that Star Wars took place about 4.7 billion years before modern times.
Which, makes the phrase "a long time ago" seem like a bit of an understatement. (Wired)
