    Philadelphia cream cheese is actually made in New York. They named it Philadelphia because that area and surrounding cities were known for their high-quality dairy.

    You're more likely to get a computer virus from visiting religious sites than porn sites.

    According to research from security firm Symantec, religious websites carry three times more malware threats than pornography sites. Symantec found that the average number of security threats on religious sites was around 115, compared to adult content sites which carried around 25. In fact, only 2.4 percent of adult sites were infected with malware. The researchers hypothesized that's because porn sites need to generate a profit, so there's a financial incentive to keeping them virus-free to encourage repeat business.

    Also, this happens to religious websites because a lot of time they’re done for free by members of the church that don’t completely know what they’re doing.

    Haven’t heard this one before. Bangladesh has more people than Russia.

    Russia spans nine time zones and covers more surface area than Pluto as the world's largest country, but tiny Bangladesh (slightly bigger than the size of New York state) has a population of 156.6 million people. Russia has 143.5 million.
