24 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Beer

Thanks to hipsters, the common man probably knows more about beer and zythology (“the study of beer and beer making”) than ever before. But did you know the oldest beer ad in recorded history appeared as far back 4000 BC? Or that IPAs were invented because British beer kept spoiling on its way to India, so brewers added more alcohol and more hops just to keep it fresh on the trip?

Brand Fans - People have more brands as friends than ever on Facebook

We're increasingly friending brands on Facebook—the average consumer has 29 brand friends on social networking sites, up from just seven a year ago. But that doesn't necessarily mean we're spending time with them. Less than half of us (39 percent) interact with brands regularly or all the time, with the rest doing so occasionally (33 percent) or hardly/never (28 percent), according to the latest edition of The Curve Report from NBCUniversal Integrated Media. Clearly, brands could stand to do more to keep consumers interested; the chief reason given by people who don't engage with brands on social networks is that they only "like" brands to get a deal they're offering.

Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White House

Bo Obama has certainly received his share of media coverage, but he's actually just the latest in a long line of critters who’ve called the White House home. While 68 percent of our presidents have owned dogs, and 20 percent of them have had cats, other animals have also lived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue — like canaries, goats, horses and even cows. Exotic animals have also played a part in White House history, including President Theodore Roosevelt’s menagerie of lions, zebras and bears. President James Buchanan was gifted a herd of elephants from the King of Siam, but the pachyderms never roamed the South Lawn. There are, however, more than 70,000 bees currently taking up residence in a hive on the storied lawn. Source: Presidents' Pets: An Infographic History Of Animals In The White H ouse
