Social networks around the World

Have you ever thought about social networks and their popularity around the World? A search made by Royal Pingdom with the 12 major social network around the globe was responsable for design the maps that we can see below. When I've seen these maps for the first time I found two curious things: 1 - Brazilian people are participating in all of them; and 2 - the social network that is used most by irish people is named Bebo, that means "I drink" in Portuguese.

La Prueba de la Bicicleta

When I was writing about bikes (see it below), I remembered a website from Argentina that makes tests with bikes without a padlocked in Buenos Aires streets. La Prueba de la Bicicleta website records how long the bike steal takes. The good news is that sometimes the bikes stay in the same place for hours... here in Dublin I don't believe we could find a similar result, also in Rio de Janeiro this reality is impossible. You can see below an exemple of this test.
