19 May 2013

There is little better than a Sydney skyline in the evening. What better setting to enjoy an intellectual cheat day and delve into this week's edition of Superficial Sundays - where we pursue the trivial.

Pokemon doesn't even need a hyperlink. It was the biggest thing in the world a decade ago - a craze that was probably unprecedented, even today. In 2006, Pokemon was worth $800billion - the equivalent of 1/6 of Japan's entire GDP.
Stop and reflect on that statistic for a second.
Since its heydey, it has brought in immeasurable revenue, sold countless versions of its original Gameboy Black & White game, and accumulated a staggering number of fans. 

To celebrate, today's Daily Quota is a clip from All Time 10s titled '10 Things You Didn't Know About Pokemon'.
