Things I learned this week

I learned that:
• The largest living organism on earth is Australia's Great Barrier Reef. It has a larger surface area than all of England.

• A fan of Facebook has named their child after the site's "Like" button.

• Researchers have discovered that the best things for attracting mosquitoes to a trap are --- stinky socks.

• A 23-year old with the nickname "Atlas" is in charge of the satellite-based Global Positioning System (GPS) that does everything from navigation for civilian and military aircraft to calculating the distance from your golf ball to the green.

• You may have 1,400 strains of bacteria lurking in your belly button.

Pig power may be the big new thing in the energy industry.
How about that?
