Home alone with nobody around except for her children; Ines Ramirez Perez had to do the impossible to rescue the life of her unborn baby. This was the 8th child that Ines was carrying and she had a strong feeling that it wasn’t going to be an easy labor. The 40 year-old mom who lives in a remote village in the south of Mexico had by this time already mothered six surviving children. Unfortunately, the last one was lost as a result of an obstructed delivery. This time around, Ines knew she would suffer another loss is she didn’t act fast after 12 excruciating hours of labor.

#1. Although GPS is free for the world to use, it costs $2 million per day to operate. The money comes from American tax revenue.

750 million is the annual operating cost of the Pentagon’s Global Positioning System, according to a new Congressional Research Service report. GPS is a constellation of 24 satellites that now can tell everyone where he or she is in the world (the initial constellation cost $12 billion to put into orbit). The operating cost works out to just over $2 million a day. Quite a bargain when you think about it.

#1 Underneath the streets of Beijing, there are over a million people who live in nuclear bunkers.

In the late ’60s and ‘70s, anticipating the devastation of a Cold War-nuclear fallout, Chairman Mao directed Chinese cities to construct apartments with bomb shelters capable of withstanding the blast of a nuclear bomb. In Beijing alone, roughly 10,000 bunkers were promptly constructed.

But when China opened its door to the broader world in the early ’80s, Beijing’s defense department seized the opportunity to lease the shelters to private landlords, eager to profit from converting the erstwhile fallout hideaways into tiny residential units.

Now when night falls, more than a million people—mostly migrant workers and students from rural areas—vanish from Beijing’s bustling streets into the underground universe, little known to the world above.
