(YouTube link)

Only about 10% of blind Americans can read Braille, but that doesn't surprise me, because many of those folks became blind later in life (speaking as someone whose eyesight is failing gradually). The rising number of Americans with passports is not surprising, either, since you now need one to go to Canada and Mexico. From Bigfoot to baby names, from video games to politics, number crunchers have things to tell us about everything under the sun. Elliot Morgan has a roundup of statistics from a wide variety of subjects in this week’s episode of the mental_floss List Show.
