Things I learned this week

I learned that:
• A medical testing company offers mobile paternity tests via its Who’s Your Daddy? van that cruises the streets of New York.

• It takes less brain power to believe a statement is false than to accept it as truth, according to psychological researchers. They say this is the reason that people are more apt to believe false information being fed to them by the media and politicians.

• In the UK, over-60s are more than twice as likely to give to charity as the under-30s.

• Marriage is driving middle-aged women to drink, while divorce has a similar effect on middle-aged men.

• Special fridge magnets that connect with smartphones enable customers of Dubai's Red Tomato Pizza to place their delivery orders at the touch of a button and, in 2013, Parisian members of Evian's online ordering service will just press a wifi-enabled fridge magnet to order bottled water automatically.
How about that?
