  3. At any moment in time, 45 million people around the world are drunk.
  4. The paint on the Eiffel Tower weighs as much as 10 elephants.
  5. Macaulay Culkin and Ryan Gosling are the same age.  They were both born in 1980 and are 33...and so am I, but that still makes me feel old.
  6. If they were still alive, Anne Frank and Martin Luther King Jr. would be the same age.  They were both born in 1929 and would both be 84.  That's the same age as Barbara Walters.
