Number of bridges spanning the Amazon River ; Zero !

There are some good reasons; the most quoted two are:

"There is no sufficiently pressing need for a bridge across the Amazon."

And "The width of the Amazon averages between two to six miles depending on the area, and can even reach up to 30 miles wide during rainier periods.

Thanks so much for pointing me to Heinz, @chowderman! 🙏 I found that their "No Sugar Added" variety only has 1g of sugar, compared to their "Simply" variant which has 4g. I'll definitely look for it this weekend.

The term "googol" was coined by a 9-year-old boy? In 1938, American mathematician Edward Kasner asked his young nephew, Milton Sirotta, to come up with a name for an extremely large number: 1 followed by 100 zeros. Milton suggested "googol," and his uncle liked it so much that he adopted the term for this astronomical figure. This playful origin story highlights the creativity and imagination of children, showing that even the most complex mathematical concepts can be inspired by youthful curiosity. So, the next time you hear about a googol or its even larger cousin, the googolplex, remember that it all started with a child's idea!
