1. Here are a few random facts for you.  The average age of the people in the control room during the Apollo 11 moon landing was 28.  The ampersand was the 27th letter in the alphabet during the 1800s.  And the most gender-neutral name in America is Marion . . . it's been given to 3,549 girls and 3,569 boys over the past three decades.


2. Here are some results from a new sex survey by "Esquire" and "Cosmopolitan".  Only 1% of women and 3% of men say it's harassment if a male boss tells a female employee her haircut makes her look pretty.  7% of men and 1% of women have FORWARDED a naked selfie someone sent to them.  And only 51% of women and 29% of men say they're feminists.


3. A new study found you may be sexist without even realizing it.  If you open doors for women, pay for dates, or offer your coat when they're cold, the researchers say it shows you think women can't take care of themselves.


4. A new study found the average person spends more time on their laptop, phone, and tablet than SLEEPING . . . and four out of five of us keep our phones on and next to us all night long.


5. A new study found your intelligence peaks in different ways at different ages.  From 18 to 19 you're better at processing information . . . from 25 to 35 it's your short-term memory . . . from 40 to 50 it's your ability to evaluate emotions . . . and from 60 to 70 it's how you use the knowledge you've gathered to make good decisions.
