Bjork is curious about her TV…
The ants weigh more than the elephants?
it takes approximately 2e+9 ants to have the same mass as one elephant.
There are around 625,000 elephants on the planet.
between 470,000 and 690,000 African + 45,000 Asian Elephants,
multiply 2e+9 * 625,000 = 1.25e+15 = Number of ants required to match the weight of all elephants,
The total number of individual ants alive in the world at any one time is between one and ten quadrillion, call it 5. This is 5e+15, or Five thousand million million.
So the ants win.
Decoding some ‘Anything We Want’ lyrics…
My cheeks were reflecting the longest wavelength
The longest wavelength detectable by the human visual system is red, her cheeks were red: she was blushing.
My fan was folded up and grazing my forehead
There was a period of time when women used fans to communicate with their potential suitors.
A closed fan touching her right eye = “When may I be allowed to see you?”
(assuming they didn’t actually poke the fan into their own eyeball, that must mean grazing the forehead)
"The nineteenth century language of the fan was a form of communication fundamental to the romance of America’s Victorian Era. Not only did it afford a bond between generations of women, but it also offered a form of communication enabling young women an outlet to express sincere feelings towards suitors in an acceptable manner and within the confines of the Victorian Era’s oppressive etiquette."
So you could read this as being similar to the restrictions imposed on famous people living under the modern media spotlight.
