While most of the major news networks have been broadcasting the main points that we’ve already gone over with you, there are also a bunch of titillating side stories and developments that we thought would pique your interest. For example, did you hear that “COP15″ hit the web’s #1 most googled term the other day? Here are some more lesser known tidbits about Copenhagen that you can use to impress your friends over Friday night drinks tonight.
