today i learned – sun 15th oct 2017

donโ€™t ask how i came across this fact today … but weโ€™re talking about house flies today ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

itโ€™s another one of those โ€œyouโ€™ve always thought this is true but youโ€™ve been lied toโ€ deals ๐Ÿ™ƒ

#tdil house flies actually live for between 15-25 days ๐Ÿ (ios 11.1 has a grasshopper emoji and a t-rex emoji but still no house fly?!) Continue reading “today i learned – sun 15th oct 2017”

today i learned – weds 2nd aug 2017

have you ever just looked at someone fairly useless and just thought “how do you even manage to life?!” 😳

in the animal kingdom, i guess the equivalent entity to this would be the jellyfish … like, they have no bones, no heart and no brain … how are they even a thing?! 🤔 well:

#tdil how jellyfish are even alive 🐙 … i also learned that they aren’t even fish!? 🐠 (there isn’t a jellyfish emoji … so octopus will have to do 💁🏼) Continue reading “today i learned – weds 2nd aug 2017”

today i learned – fri 30th june 2017

right, before we get started, i need to be totally honest with you … this post has been posted late due to me spending lots of time tonight playing with a porsche ๐Ÿ˜… #soz

either way … iโ€™m still counting it as fridayโ€™s post ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ. as long as i still post again for saturday, surely it still counts? anyway … as usual iโ€™m on a tangent.

#tdil polar bears arenโ€™t actually white ๐Ÿป (thereโ€™s no polar bear emoji ๐Ÿ˜ข).  Continue reading “today i learned – fri 30th june 2017”

today i learned – weds 24th may 2017

today, we’re going to start off with a celebration ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ the blog turned 100 posts (and therefore 100 days old) yesterday!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ we could have celebrated this yesterday but i don’t keep count of how many posts i’ve done and wordpress told me after i had already posted yesterday’s fact ๐Ÿ™ƒ thanks for sticking with me people ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

there were a couple of things that i partially learned today that i wanted to write about … but unfortunately, i still don’t really understand them ๐Ÿ™ˆ therefore, we’re going to go with a random fact i learned about cats ๐Ÿฑ

#tdil that cats walk in such a way that they only ever leave a single line of paw prints in snow ๐Ÿพ (that’s only part of the fact … it’s just easier to make the point about how they walk by using the snow example) Continue reading “today i learned – weds 24th may 2017”

today i learned – tues 23rd may 2017

today was good day for two reasons – 1). it was spent at my spiritual home, silverstone๐ŸŽ  2). it was the second day in a row where i’ve reached over 11,000 steps ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #fitnessgod

anyway, due to the day being spent at sillystone, i was hoping to bring you a silverstone based fact … unfortunately, i’m having a hard time verifying the one thing that i was taught about the race track today ๐Ÿ˜’. so, here’s something else that i learned today after reading more about yesterday’s fish, tongue, parasite, beast (–>here<– if you need to catch up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป)

#tdil that there is a parasite in cats that controls the mind of rats so that they get eaten by the aforementioned cat (or their mate). Continue reading “today i learned – tues 23rd may 2017”

today i learned – fri 12th may 2017

evening y’all ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ happy friyay ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป don’t know about yours, but my week has been proper long ๐Ÿ˜’ #getmewine 

anyway, what better way to end the week than a fact about dogotrons? (and wine๐Ÿท). can’t think of a better way? goodgood … you’re in the right place.

#tdil the reason for the order in which wolf packs roam around. as in, how they decide who is upfront, who goes in the middle and who lags behind at the back.  Continue reading “today i learned – fri 12th may 2017”
