Things I learned this week

I learned that:
• A cook on an Australian submarine can earn $187,000 per year.

• Canadians are among the most positive in assessing the current economic situation in their country, ranking 6th behind Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, Sweden, and China, according to Ipsos Reid. Healthcare continues to occupy top spot in Canadians’ issue concerns.

• If you are tired of the hassle of flying commercial airlines, you can charter a light jet for as little as $114,000 for 25 hours.

• A Vermont deli is imposing a $3 fine for yapping on one's cell phone while trying to order at the counter.

• When you sneeze, air and particles travel through the nostrils at speeds of more than 100 mph. During this time, all bodily functions stop, including your heart, contributing to the impossibility of keeping one's eyes open during a sneeze.

• Guys give bigger and more frequent tips to waitresses wearing red T-shirts.
 How about that?
