The BBC has found another 100 things we didn’t know last year:

There are 200 million blogs which are no longer being updated, say technology analysts. [But 100 million will be back next week, after the authors have pouted a little.]

Online shoppers will only wait an average of four seconds for an internet page to load before giving up. [Yet they wait forever for any given YouTube video.]

More than one in eight people in the United States show signs of addiction to the internet, says a study. [Only one in eight?]

Each person sends an average of 55 greetings cards per year. [Good lord. Who is sending all of my greeting cards?]

Britain is still paying off debts that predate the Napoleonic wars because it’s cheaper to do so than buy back the bonds on which they are based. [The lenders have to be a bit peeved.]
