That would be insane!

crazy how Walmart would still have a higher valuation then the combined company. Sometimes I forget how big Walmart is.

Not valuation, market share.

I thought of putting this one in The Brothers that bought South Africa thread, but then thought this is a different situation, and deserves it's own discussion. For now it will be here in Interesting Articles (and will stay here if not enough people are interested/fascinated by it).

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-01-04/what-will-it-take-to-fix-the-mess-in-zimbabwe

A very interesting sentence I found towards the end is:

Harare may be run down, but itís rarely dangerous; violent crime is far more prevalent in Johannesburg.

File this one under "you can't make these things up".

http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkish-academic-claims-prophet-noah-used-cell-phone-to-call-his-son-before-flood-125380

I once heard from R' Menashe Reisman that before the Mabul there existed advanced technologies (he had a mekor), and I think he explicitely mentioned cell phones. So not soooo far-fetched...
