Off topic: Inventions and WWI, 'The Foodroom,' morality around the world, TL;DR Wikipedia

So you know, 10 inventions that became successful because of World War I include Kleenex and tea bags. “You tell corporate I’m not putting apple slices on my menu” — from “The Foodroom,” or what an Aaron Sorkin TV show about McDonald’s would look like.  Global views on morality, from divorce to contraception to gambling, via Pew Research’s interactive graphics and database. And good for a laugh or two, but not for the easily offended: TL;DR Wikipedia — with entries that get right to the point.
