Let us introduce you to the Listicle Liege, the Article Aficionado, the one and only Nathan. Since creating his first photo collage at the age of five with images clipped from his mom’s Chatelaine magazines (all of them), it’s been nearly impossible to stem this one’s tide of visual learning. Be it the annals of history or the latest celeb gossip, Nathan has probably researched it, likely already has a folder of relevant photos on his desktop, and definitely learned a lot of interesting facts to go with those images. Whereas most well-read adults have bookshelves full of classic literature, Nathan’s stacks are composed of National Geographic and TIME special editions and a curated section of first-grade readers (for inspiration). If you prefer picture books to wordy novels, listicles by Nathan are right up your alley.

Did you know?

There are only three national food traditions that are recognized by the UN for cultural significance?

France and Mexico are on the list, and they are joined by traditional Japanese cuisine – which is known as washoku (literally, “food of Japan”). The seafood industry makes up a large part of Japan’s culinary economy, with the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo selling over seven-hundred thousand tons of seafood each year. The fortune cookie, despite being commonly misconceived as a Western invention, actually originated in 19th century Japan, where the fortune was placed inside the bend of the cookie rather than inside the cookie’s hollow center. The world’s most expensive fish can be found in Japan and is used in exotic sushi dishes, the Bluefin Tuna costs around $375,000.
