Those facts, you know, an odd little bit of information you’d probably never deduce on your own but which is both striking and thought-provoking.

I ran across one of those just now and think I’ll start making it a practice to devote a post to odd or offbeat pieces of information when the occasion arises. I mean, what’s the internet for?

And so, Fact # 1:

Otis Elevator estimates that it transports the equivalent of the world’s population every five days.

That’s from a photo caption on page 110 in The New Yorker, April 21, 2008.

You could look it up.
