This is why I pay my BBC license

Three new things I've learned from the BBC this week:
"African-Americans in the US, if considered as a separate country, would rank 11th in the world by gross national product.

"Pink was a boy's colour while blue was thought better for girls - a 'generally accepted rule' according to The Ladies Home Journal in 1918, which described pink as 'more decided and stronger" while blue was "more delicate and dainty'.

"The first sponsor of the Olympics, starting the trend at the 1928 Amsterdam games, was Coca-Cola."
