today i learned – mon 11th sept 2017

today’s little fact is technically not a ‘today i learned’ 😅, it’s more of a ‘today i remembered’ … even so, i’m going to count it as valid ✔️ (it’s my blog ain’t it … so, you know 💁🏼).

anyway, it came about after a family debate and i decided to learn more (in an effort to win at said debate and to learn something #winwin ✌🏻.

alright gang, we’re back to mythbusting today! 🤓

what i hope you take away from this – if you’re not already aware – is that you totally should trust the internet 🙈 treat it like a cute angry dog: give it a pat on the head and enjoy its company but don’t trust it won’t try to eat you 👍🏻

today is officially the best day in history – mah birthdayyy! 😏🎂 as such, i was thinking of trying to find something amazing and birthday based …

today i learned – mon 14th aug 2017

now, what i actually learned today was a couple of things: firstly, my massive petrolhead uncle used to be a cyclist who deliberately rode uphill 😳 #umwhat. secondly, lots of many things about North Korea 🙃.

despite this, today’s fact isn’t either of the above 👍🏻 mainly because the first one probably won’t be useful in many pub quizzes and the second might end up with me being blown up by artillery or something #notideal 🔫

#tdil that it’s a myth that your entire body is replaced every 7-10 years 🤔 Continue reading “today i learned – mon 14th aug 2017”
