    In exchange for $3 billion in Pepsi products, Russia gave Pepsi 17 submarines, a cruiser, a frigate, and a destroyer. Before they sold the ships for scrap metal, Pepsi had the 6th most powerful navy in the world.

    ^^ He ended up dead. Li Ka Shing bided his time, and waited until he went to mainland China. Then had him offed- I'm sure it wasn't pleasant. More of a ploblem to get that done in HK. I used to look out upon his rather nice place, across a canal, whenever I went to one of my affluent mates place for a pissup. Clearwater Bay area, if I recall correctly.

    One of the leading killers of Australia's endearing koalas is a debilitating bacterial infection: chlamydia.

    The idea of koalas with chlamydia — a common sexually transmitted infection in people — recently drew chuckles on HBO's "Last Week Tonight," but the disease, which is affecting koalas in epidemic proportions, is hardly a laughing matter.

    Chlamydia-infected koalas made the news on Sunday (May 6) when the show's host, John Oliver, mentioned the dedication of a new koala ward at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, called the John Oliver Koala Chlamydia Ward, to treat the sick marsupials.

    But chlamydia is no joke to koalas. Surveys have shown that some wild populations demonstrate a 100 percent rate of infection, which frequently leads to blindness, severe bladder inflammation, infertility and death. And treatment with antibiotics could create further problems for the marsupials, upsetting their gut microbes and making it difficult for them to digest the eucalyptus leaves that are a staple of their diet, researchers recently discovered.

    The word 'his' appears in the Bible more than 8,000 times. The word 'hers' only appears three times.

    Mike Tyson once offered a zookeeper $10,000 to let him fight a Gorilla he noticed was bullying other primates.

    Yeah, I think that needs to be fact checked. Sounds too far fetched. 3 BILLION dollars worth of pepsi products is a lot of soda.
    I'm calling fake news on that one.

    ^ true actually. Vessels were basically sold for scrap. But indeed the deal was made, albeit that it also included vodka...

    Hugh Jackman didn't know wolverines were real animals. He mistakenly studied wolves in preparation for the iconic role of Wolverine.

    A man in Costa Rica nursed a crocodile back to health after it had been shot in the head & released the reptile back to its home. The next day, the man discovered “Pocho” had followed him home & was sleeping on his porch. For 20 yrs Pocho became part of the man's family.

    Ethiopia broke the world tree-planting record in an effort to tackle climate change. They planted more than 350 million trees in one day. They're expected to plant more than 5 billion trees in 2020.

    I make my maths:
    -35 million people, each plants 10 trees a day
    -3,5 million people, each plants 100 trees a day?

    and that all beside their fight with hunger and with Tigrays?
