Other statistics that made the shortlist:

- 40%: the percentage of Russian men who do not live to the age of 65 - 64,946: the number of measles cases in Europe from November 2017 to October 2018 - $1.3 billion: the amount lost from the value of Snapchat within a day after Kylie Jenner tweeted: "Sooo does anyone else not open Snapchat anymore?"

If they go extinct, perhaps one day scientists can bring them back at a Giraffic Park

Giraffes are such strange and interesting animals. We can’t lose our leopard moose camels!

I wouldn’t wish dementia on anyone. My grandparents are suffering from it and I can’t stand watching them suffer this way. This gives me hope for the future... it’s too late for my grandparents but maybe others won’t suffer in the future.

What a coincidence, someone posted your exact same comment in that thread too
