Things I learned this week

I learned that:
• The first use of instant replay happened on Hockey Night in Canada.

• Canadians who are furthest from retirement are most likely to maximize their RRSP contributions each year: 21% of those in their 30s do so, versus just 12% of those in their 40s and 14% of those in their 50s.

Poutine, invented in Warwick QC in 1957, can be translated as "bad stew,""damn mess," or "fat person."

• Scientists are puzzled by an area of lesser gravity in northern Canada.

• There are scientific reasons that alcohol makes you feel better.

• Adolph Hitler was Time magazine's Man of The Year for 1938.
How about that?
