The United States is 17th in the world in developing and marketing green energy.

Hong Kong has no sales tax, but it has more skyscrapers than any other city in the world – more than 7,500. There is no official height for what constitutes a skyscraper except to say it is a very tall building.

The Nilgai antelope in Texas is native to India.

Based on a recent study by Karen Kopecky and Jeremy Greenwood, the annual benefit derived from personal computers by the average American is $1,700.

Mark Twain once said, "None but the dead have free speech."
