Ruk Digest 8/21

Hello Fellow Rukkers!

1.  Another Reason To Get The Amazon Echo: Alexa Can Entertain You Pretty Well

Let's say you ask Alexa (Echo responds to Alexa for any voice commands) "What is love?" Alexa will respond with "Baby don't hurt me. Don't hurt me. No more."

If you don't get that answer then listen to this song.

For 26 other fun questions and statements for Alexa click the link for ideas. 

And of course, you can come up with your own interesting questions to ask. 

Warning: It can be too much fun; at least for 5 minutes that is. 

2.  A Super Fun And Relatively New Sport: Bossaball

It originated in Spain and it's a mix of Volleyball, Soccer, and Gymnastics. 

Click the link to a two minute video of how kids in Bogota, Columbia play this sport.

3.  U.S. And World Population Clock And Stats

This is a real time feed from the US Census Bureau of our population (based on estimates).

There are also interesting interactive stats like a timer for births every 7 seconds.

Did you know also that Indonesia is the 4th most populous country?
