The American government has been shut down for about a month now, since the 22nd of December. The biggest consequence of this is that employees of the government aren't getting paid until the government is un-shut and Donald Trump has refused to do this until the Democrats pledge the $5.7 billion he has demanded for his proposed border wall (of which Obama has currently built more of than Trump). Is this what he means by the "art" of the deal?

Politics aside, what is this doing to peoples' personal lives? Well, with almost 800,000 people out of work until Trump get his billions, people have a lot more time on their hands. What to do with all this time? Watch porn, naturally. Pornhub has reported, using data from January seventh-eleventh, that 6% more people are watching porn than before the shutdown. There's also been a “distinct shift in the hours during which people are watching porn." All these people who've been out of work no longer need to get up early, so “late-night traffic increased by up to 14% above average, while early morning traffic from 9am to 10am had the smallest change.”

The site's hourly traffic in Washington DC has gone up by 6.32%.
