ProPublica has a chilling, detailed project about how many U.S. women died of childbirth-related causes in 2016. Definitely worth your time.

Pew Research has some good news – millennials are most likely to use public libraries! 

What was the biggest (and/or best) movie the year you were born? For me, it was The Godfather and Pink Flamingos. This…may explain some stuff, actually.

Make Your Point is a daily email which aims to improve your vocabulary, one word at a time.

And lastly, Retronaut has a gallery of car crashes from 1930s Boston. There were a LOT of cars going into the water, apparently.

The 70s were strangely dark, weren't they fellow child of the 70s? Mine follow:

The BIGGEST movie was Love Story, which grossed $106.4 million in the United States.
The Best Picture winner was Patton, which also won Oscars for Best Director (Franklin J. Schaffner), Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound, and Best Art Direction.
But the best movie was Five Easy Pieces. On a California oil field, white collar meets blue collar as an ex-pianist (Jack Nicholson) floats through life, damaging himself and others along the way.

Love, war, and Jack Nicholson! Quite the combination!
