One of the great side benefits of knowing so many of the world's best and brightest (be they entertainers, educators, politicians, economists, astrophysicists or what-have-you) is those moments of wonder where you find out something startling and unexpected about somebody famous.

|Well, now you know.|
|Kanye and Kim can actually read!|
