** I could have just gone to "Japan" here but I wanted to do something different!

Things I learned: "ApocalyPS3" was the nickname for the PS3 leap-year bug.

I learned something interesting on the welfare (Quality of life) page.
Quote:
The Popsicle Index

The Popsicle Index is a quality of life measurement coined by Catherine Austin Fitts as the percentage of people in a community who believe that a child in their community can safely leave their home, walk to the nearest possible location to buy a popsicle, and walk back to their homes.

Is it safe for your child to buy a popsicle?
