This Is What Americans Will Look Like By 2050

June 4, 2014 | 7 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

It is projected that by the year 2050 the people who make up our American melting pot will reach an ultimate level of mixed ethnic heritage, resulting in the minority truly becoming anyone who is of one racial background.

National Geographic decided to explore the look of the “average American” with a little help from photographer Martin Schoeller and a bit of digital manipulation, creating a series of portraits that show what these future Americans will look like.

The Drunk And Passed Out Businessmen Of Japan

This is a culture where drinking parties are job requirements. It’s a place where you can market a product that lets you consume more alcohol while getting less drunk. Think about that for a minute: You pay 100 yen for a product that lets you consume more but feel it less. This only makes sense in a culture of competitive, shot-for-shot drinking, where keeping pace with your coworkers and superiors is rule ichiban.

Sixty percent of problem drinkers are salaried businessmen who claim that getting drunk with clients or coworkers is part of their job and a mark of company loyalty. To refuse a drink from the boss is a terrible insult that can damage a career. And although alcohol consumption is now decreasing in most industrialized countries, it has quadrupled in Japan since 1960.

Brock Lesnar’s House Is Up For Sale!

June 4, 2014 | 1 Comment » | Topics: Interesting |

The University of Minnesota wrestling legend, former UFC Heavyweight champion and WWE superstar is selling his humble abode. The property weighs in at 3,247 square feet, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is listed at $799,000. One thing to observe about the property photos is how relatively modest it is compared to other millionaire households. That’s in fitting with Lesnar’s character, he has never been concerned with the trappings of fame or fancy pieces of technology. Indeed, it appears his primary interest with the property was down to the vast land which came with it. Brock owns 43 acres of prime land around the house, including woods and a pond. The stretch of the property is perfect for Lesnar who is famously private. The seclusion he enjoyed here would have been a factor in his original purchase. The reason he is now selling is unknown, but it won’t be down to money, Brock is currently on one of the very best contracts in WWE history.

The Power Of The Human Brain

May 29, 2014 | 6 Comments » | Topics: Interesting |

The most powerful computer known to man is the human brain. The brain possesses about 100 billion neurons with roughly 1 quadrillion (1 million billion) connections known as synapses wiring these cells together and has a memory capacity of approximately 2.5 petabytes (or 2.5 million gigabytes). To put that in perspective, it took the 4th most powerful supercomputer (82,944 processors) in the world, 40 minutes to complete a simulation of one second of human brain activity. What can we do with this???

The record for memorising Pi was achieved by Chao Lu who recited Pi from memory to 67,890 places, at the Northwest A&F University, Shaanxi province, China, on 20 November 2005. It took 24 hours and 4 minutes. That is one digit every 1.2 seconds.
