Interesting post - but I would have much preferred to see the sources for all the stats/ facts instead of a Tweet this button.

What are your sources for this?

All the sources are different.  Any you would specifically like the corresponding articles for?

Having facts like these without proof of source makes the article doubtful. No need to bother. Thanks for the reply!
