The Random Rundown


1.  The orange color of prescription bottles is to protect the pills inside from ultraviolet rays from the sun, which can alter and degrade them, making them less effective or causing unwanted side effects.



Orange can do that, while also letting enough light through for the contents to be seen through the plastic.



2.  The most-streamed show over the past three years is:  Reruns of “NCIS”.  Americans watch 11.4 million hours of “NCIS” reruns EVERY WEEK . . . on streaming platforms alone.



That’s more than twice the time spent watching “Stranger Things”, which was the seventh most-streamed show . . .  and the only ORIGINAL content in the Top 10.  The second-most-streamed show is . . . “Cocomelon”.



3.  The name of the messaging app Slack is actually an acronym.  It stands for Searchable Log of All Communication and Knowledge.



4.  The mortar used in the Great Wall of China included sticky rice . . . and that’s one of the reasons it’s held together so well.



5.  The term “napkin” dates back to the 14th century, but contrary to one viral myth, napkins were NOT invented by Leonardo da Vinci.
