What I've Learned Recently!

Some things I’ve learned recently:

There are no trashcans at Burning Man.  Those who attend clean up after themselves – and apparently do a great job of it.

Tens of thousands of (mostly) young people attend events to watch gamers play against each other.

A related item:  Colleges are beginning to award athletic-type scholarships to top-of-the-line gamers.

Medicare costs are going down, not up.

How huge underground caves are created.  (Look it up if you’re interested)

That the Roman Empire and the Han Empire in China were at their peak at the same time (200 BCE to 200 AD) and were similar in many ways even though they were barely aware that the other existed.

The older you get the more happiness you get from ordinary experiences rather than extraordinary ones.  (I probably would have guessed this was so, but never thought about it.)

College football as big business is not a new phenomenon.  It was rampant 100 years ago.

When to eat sushi with and without chopsticks and when to dip it in soy sauce.
