today i learned – mon 21st aug 2017

i’ll be honest, this is possibly going to be a slightly rushed one 🙈 granted, if i want people to read these posts, i probably shouldn’t start with something like that 😅.

anyway, the reason for the rushing is partially due to #busy but also partially due to the topic of today’s fact!

admit it, last time you yawned, you tried to get as many people to join in as possible 😏 go on … we all do it … if you don’t, then you should! it’s funny 😂

today i learned – tues 4th july 2017

today’s fact is quite possibly going to debunk a myth that almost every child will have definitely heard whilst in the playground at school.

today i learned – sun 2nd july 2017

so, bit of background info about today’s fact: it came about after a very long journey to buy a car turned into a day at the beach 😂

strange one, hey!? 🙈 of all the times i thought i’d randomly end up at the beach, being in devon and not buying the aforementioned car was not one … not gonna lie, it was a totally awesome day 😬.

today i learned – thurs 23rd feb 2017

if i’m honest, today’s thing that i did go and learn is actually pretty grim…and it’s about rats, so (depending on your outlook) possibly double grim. meh, still interesting. amazingly, this was taught to me at work by megatron thanks to a microsoft excel course of all things (the ‘amazingly’ was to the excel course bit…not to megatron teaching me something 😬 lol awks).

right, the thing that i learned today – rats cannot vomit…that’s why rat poison works. they also can’t burp or suffer from heartburn -although i’m a bit dobious of the last bit…how can you test that? (to be honest, there’s probably a test that i just don’t know about…a #tdil for another day i guess).  Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 23rd feb 2017”
