Here's What's Buzzing Around The Office:
1
Happy Winter, everybody! Yesterday, the North Pole was tilted at an angle of 23.5 degrees from the sun—kicking off the longest, darkest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
 
2
When The NeverEnding Story premiered in the 1980s, the movie raked in approximately $100 million. But did you know the book’s author, Michael Ende, called the film “revolting"? We found out why. 
 
3
Speaking of never-ending stories, it’s the holidays, and that means waiting in line at airport security. Hey, it beats working for the TSA. We talked to former TSA agents, and they let us in on their secret lingo and explained why airports get shut down by runaway cats.  
 
4
Each year, billions of pounds of fruits and veggies are thrown away—just because they look funny. It’s a major waste of food. But a new startup may change all that by selling misshapen produce on the cheap.
 
5
There are a lot of ways to die in a Shakespeare play. People are smothered by pillows, chased by bears, and sometimes baked into pies. Check out this incredible pie chart showing how Shakespeare’s characters bit the dust.
 
6
In ancient times, the Zoroastrians believed otters were sacred “dogs of the sea.” In modern Bangladesh, fishermen train the critters to chase fish into nets. Learn that and more with these 15 playful facts about otters.
