i’ll be honest, i’ve another sunday headache 😭 (which is a legit thing) so don’t expect anything too profound 😂

anyway, i’ve just finished watching interstellar again 😍 (literally the best film ever 🚀) and thought that i’d write about that today! 👍🏻

#tdil that the wormhole and black hole depicted in the film took both a really long time to create and required brand new tech 😳 Continue reading “today i learned – sun 6th aug 2017”

i has originally planned to be super efficient today … i was going to have this all written and posted by lunchtime! however, i’m not good at efficient – so, we’re back to racing against the clock! 😒

right, i’m going to get straight into it … the apocalypse is coming and it’s all facebook’s fault 😭 i know that we’ve had lots of possible apocalypses on this blog … but this one is legit 🤙🏻

(also, on a brighter facebook note, the blog now has a facebook page! you should go ->here<- and follow it so you’re always up-to-date! 😬)

today i learned – tues 18th july 2017

today’s random little learning actually came about yesterday whilst waiting to be served at an audi parts store …

despite that, it has absolutely nothing to do with audi … or even cars at all 🚗, for that matter. i’ve no idea how it came about but somehow we’re today jumping back into the worlds of phrase origin and superstition 💀

#tdil how the phrase ‘touch wood’ or ‘knock on wood’ came about 🤔 (yes, this does still count as a tdil … only the question came about yesterday, the learning happened right now!) Continue reading “today i learned – tues 18th july 2017”

ok, this is probably going to be a short one 🙈 … like, really short … but i just couldn’t miss this post out!

today i learned – weds 14th june 2017

i want to start today’s post with an update on something that i wrote about at the end of last month: apple always showing 09:41 as the time when they release an iphone 📱 (you can read that –>here<–). 

whilst doing a screen recording of my iphone earlier today, i found out that your phone automatically sets the time to 09:41! #mad. random fact no1 there 👍🏻 you can have that one for free 😬. anyway, on with the show…

today i learned – weds 1st mar 2017

hello, sports fans! babs (aka megatron aka megan) has once again been teaching me things – this time internetwebnet things. amazingly, despite the fact i once proclaimed to someone that “i am the internet”, i was unaware of this fact…hence why it’s today’s #tdil.

today i learned – fri 17th feb 2017

first of all – thank jebus it’s friday! whilst this week hasn’t been a particularly bad or long week, friday’s appearance is most definitely welcomed.

anyway! today’s learning was actually inspired by last night’s visit to the moving picture house to see ‘batman made of lego the movie, in all three dimensions’. sat wearing my highly stylish 3d glasses (without lenses), i couldn’t help but wonder how these new school contraptions work.  Continue reading “today i learned – fri 17th feb 2017”
