today i learned – sun 11th june 2017

today was spent wandering around sillystone whilst watching some mad loud british gt cars 😍 so as usual, the thing that i learned (well, re-learned) today was the power of uv and its ability to cook your face through dense clouds 😒

however, that super short paragraph doesn’t make for much a blog post 🙈 so i decided to do some investigating into something that i heard the other day 👍🏻

today i learned – fri 9th june 2017

fans of such things as the walking dead, resident evil, shaun of the dead, zombieland and any other zombie based media is going to quite enjoy today’s fact 😏.

it’s going to sound pretty darn far-fetched … but bear with 😳 the many different, actually credible, sources make me think this is totally legit. 

#tdil that 2017 is the year that scientists will attempt to bring 20 people ‘back from the dead’ ☠️ … can only end well … last time people tried something stupid like this, trump ended up president 🙄. Continue reading “today i learned – fri 9th june 2017”

today’s random fact is one that was, once again, taught to me by radio one’s rather brilliant greg james … this time during a conversation about pooing on trains 💩. the world truly is a wonderful place 🙊 

sadly, i’m not best chums with famous radio one djs in real life 😭 so, if you listen to radio one, you have probably already heard this random nugget. 

#tdil that sometimes human waste can fall from aeroplanes and turn into mad frozen toilet bombs 😳  Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 8th june 2017”

today i learned – weds 7th june 2017

i know i say this a lot, but today’s post is actually going to be pretty short 🙈. this is because of two different reasons: 1) i have 30 mins before this is late … 2) super unfit me trekked snowdon today 😂.

as you can imagine … the net effect of trekking snowdon is the need for sleep 😳 so yeah, quick fact tonight 👍🏻

#tdil a couple of interesting facts about mount snowdon! 🌄 Continue reading “today i learned – weds 7th june 2017”

today i learned – tues 6th june 2017

not going to lie, today’s fact has actually ruined my life a little bit 😭 of course meaning that we’re heading back into the world of dinosaurs. 

unlike last time, where we discussed the fact that velociraptors are actually really small and quite boring (find that –>here<–), this one isn’t the fault of everyone’s favourite dinosaur film franchise 👍🏻.

#tdil that a new study into dinosaurs has found that big scary dinosaurs didn’t actually roar 🐯 … instead they probably favoured a nice bit of ‘cooing’ 😳 um, what?  Continue reading “today i learned – tues 6th june 2017”

as boring as that first paragraph may have been, it’s actually relevant; today’s fact is the product of one of our family conversations 🦅.

#tdil the reason why a group of crows is called a ‘murder of crows’ ☠️ … (i imagine that suicide squad is also considered a ‘murder’ rather than a gang 😏 just because it’s so much cooler). Continue reading “today i learned – sun 4th june 2017”

despite this being a short week, it’s been a long week 😒 that said, i have just learned loads of things 😏 … lots of it about executions ☠️ like, properly eye opening stuff about executions. 

unfortunately, at this time, i don’t really understand enough of it to make a full post about it … also, it’s ruddy depressing and today isn’t a day for depressing. instead, here’s something about fish 😂
