GTT Express is a $300m transatlantic cable between New York and London stock exchanges to reduce transmission latency by 5ms fiberatlantic.com/system/…
5G is 1,000 times faster than 4G with 100 times less latency. digiday.com/marketing/5g-…
There was an experiment on the effects on sexual behaviour of MDMA on rats. MDMA-exposed animals exhibited a significant increase in intromission and ejaculation latencies as well as a significant decrease in percentage of rats displaying copulatory activity ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1…
In men worldwide, the mean intravaginal ejaculation latency time, defined as 'the time between the start of vaginal intromission and the start of intravaginal ejaculation', is 5.4 minutes ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1…
As a joke, an internet protocol called IoAC (Internet over Avian Carriers) has been officially created and tested. It uses homing pigeons to transport data packets, with huge latency but great throughput. cnet.com/news/pigeon-powe…
Mesothelioma commercials are so common recently due to the unusually long latency period between the exposure to asbestos and the development of mesothelioma. Asbestos use in the US peaked in 1973, so a lot of those who worked with it are just now getting cancer. allenandallen.com/blog/wh…
Grid Computing is a type of utility computing that shares resources uniformly across geographically separate areas but it requires very low latency to work right and special programming techniques not typically used in regular software. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gri…
Nasa developed a internet protocol that could connect our entire solar system called DTN (Disruption Tolerant Networking) nasa.gov/content/dtn

The owner of the worlds fastest internet (40 gigs per second) is 75 years old, never owned a computer, and uses the modem to dry laundry. thelocal.se/10810/2008033…
Submarine communication cables have been around since as early as 1854, and are used to transmit roughly 99% of all internet communication(s) worldwide. Also, sharks love to eat them, FYI. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sub…
The south pole gets better internet than i do. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tel…
, there's a global network of underwater cables that handle most of the world's internet traffic. submarinecablemap.com/
Google created its own transport layer protocol, called QUIC to send data faster over two endpoints. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QUI…
90% of all data in the world was created within the past 2 years.
