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!
#tdil the reason why insect bites start to itch more if you scratch them 🕷 Continue reading “today i learned – mon 21st aug 2017”
today i was made aware of something horrific … like, a thing of actual nightmares that totally exists in the real world 🙃. just because this blog is a happy place, i guess 👍🏻.
so yeah, there’s a scene in king kong (not the new one and not the original … the jack black one) where all the dudes get stuck in a hole with many bugs. amongst these bugs, there’s a mad worm with huge teeth … can’t be real … can it? 😳
#tdil that the terrifying toothy worm is totally a real thing and it has teeth made of metal … it’s basically a terrifying bond villain 🤙🏻 #rad Continue reading “today i learned – sat 22nd july 2017”
this fact that i do in fact have for thee today may just make you very happy … it’s an excuse to drink alcohol 😬🍸

it’s friyay againnnnn!!!!! 😬😬😬 it’s finally weekend ‘o’ clock … i hope that you’ve got lots planned 🙂
anyway, i’m going to warn you that today’s fact is one that airs on the side of weird alien film mixed with the last of us mixed with every ant based zombie nightmare you’ve ever had 🐜 (that will make sense very soon)
#tdil that there is a fungus found in tropical forests that infects certain species of ant and takes over their brain … turning them into a zombie like state 😳 Continue reading “today i learned – fri 19th may 2017”
