first order of business! this is post 201 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ (once again, i missed the actual milestone ๐Ÿ™ƒ). but yeah, how damn awesome is that?! ๐Ÿ™Š 201 days of entirely pointless facts ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป.

today is no different … if iโ€™m honest, this is probably the most random post to date ๐Ÿ˜‚

#tdil that there is a legit post box in japan that is 10 metres under water! ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ“ฎ Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 31st aug 2017”

more talk of food today ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป the best topic for a blog post (other than space and mythbusting) ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

much our last food fact (where we discussed the great wasabi conspiracy … read that ->here<-) weโ€™ve been lied to once again ๐Ÿ˜ญ

#tdil that french fries ๐ŸŸ didnโ€™t actually originate in france ๐Ÿ˜ณ (why so many lies food industry?!) Continue reading “today i learned – tues 29th aug 2017”

right, i’m afraid this is going to be another one of those fairly quick ones 😅 got lots to do and all that 👍🏻

any way, today’s fact concerns itself with my dogs’ favourite toy – the frisbee (there’s no emoji for that ☹️).

#tdil that the dude who revolutionised the frisbee, was cremated and turned into frisbees when he died #rip … that’s commitment to the cause!? Continue reading “today i learned – sun 13th aug 2017”

admit it, last time you yawned, you tried to get as many people to join in as possible ๐Ÿ˜ go on … we all do it … if you donโ€™t, then you should! itโ€™s funny ๐Ÿ˜‚

that pretty much sets the tone for today! weโ€™re going all out yawn central up in this beast ๐Ÿ˜Ž

#tdil the reasons why scientists think we yawn and why yawns are contagious ๐Ÿ˜ฒ <- thatโ€™s as close as weโ€™re getting to a yawn emoji ๐Ÿ˜‚. Continue reading “today i learned – tues 8th aug 2017”

headache gone and black hole sun blasting in my lug ‘ole 👂🏻 (it’s by soundgarden … it’s ace … get on it!) it’s time to go full science on this shizz 🤓

#tdil i learned that scientists may have managed to take a real life actual photo of a black hole 😱 … that’s actually nuts. Continue reading “today i learned – mon 7th aug 2017”

today i learned – sun 6th aug 2017

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! 😒

that said, i’m sooooo impressed with today’s fact … it has legit blown my mind 😵 like, what the actual?!

#tdil that an iphone 📱 with a full hard drive is actually heavier than it was the day that you picked it up 😱. Continue reading “today i learned – sat 5th aug 2017”

apparently itโ€™s national beer day today … well, according to facey-b it is – so it has to be true?! as such, i was initially going to do a beer based fact today ๐Ÿบ

however, in my search for beer based facts, i stumbled upon something much much better (and loosely related to beer).

#tdil of the existence of a sport called โ€˜wife carryingโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜… Continue reading “today i learned – fri 4th aug 2017”

now, i’m really really lucky to have a job that i properly enjoy … like, i basically do what i dreamt of as a kid 😍.

even so, i can’t help but really want the job that i learned about today 😬 i’m pretty sure you’ll agree as soon as you hear the job title 😏

#tdil that nasa is currently hiring a new ‘planetary protection officer’ 😎 … i’m sorry, but that is the coolest job title ever. Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 3rd august 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”
