36. The average employee spends 14 working days a year on personal e-mails, phone calls and web browsing, outside official breaks, according to employment analysts Captor.

I knew this years ago. Infact there was a demonstration on 'How To' when I was a nipper.

41. Tactically, the best Monopoly properties to buy are the orange ones: Vine Street, Marlborough Street and Bow Street.


How is this "something we didn't know last year"? Anybody who has ever played monopoly knows that.

Vine Street, Marlborough Street and Bow Streets are not on a real Monopoly board.

Nonsense! Everybody knows that you should buy Neude, Biltstraat and Vreeburg instead.

Buy Mayfair. Doesn't win as much but there's nothing like having a hotel there and watching someone sweat when they get close to it.

It's the Monopoly version of Instagib. =)
