today i learned – thurs 17th aug 2017

alright, as someone who works in digital marketing … in an office … i spend quite a lot of time making (getting confused by) mad excel spreadsheets.

i’ve always thought excel was only good for making confusing formulas and ocd control of borderlines that would make trump jealous 💩 (actual picture of donald), turns out, excel is useful for a lot more than that 😏

#tdil that it is possible to become ‘world champion of microsoft excel’ 🏆😱 … o.m.actual.g 🙌🏻 Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 17th aug 2017”

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 😂

that pretty much sets the tone for today! we’re going all out yawn central up in this beast 😎

#tdil the reasons why scientists think we yawn and why yawns are contagious 😲 <- that’s as close as we’re getting to a yawn emoji 😂. Continue reading “today i learned – tues 8th aug 2017”

apparently it’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 🍺

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 ‘wife carrying’ 😅 Continue reading “today i learned – fri 4th aug 2017”

of all of the random stuff that has appeared on this blog … i’m going to go ahead and say that this is one of the more surprising 😂.

today, we’re heading into a wonderful world that combines corn with shoes 🤔 confusing, huh?

#tdil that the original measurement used for shoe size was ‘barleycorn’ 😳 Continue reading “today i learned – mon 31st july 2017”

i don’t feel like i’ve been giving the blog enough time recently 😕 it’s been a super busy week, so all of these facts have been a little rushed 😒 #sozza.

i’m afraid that today’s is going to be the same 🙈 not only is it late but i’m mad tired after an 11 hour work day and have another early morning looming 🙃.

#tdil that the little dot that’s sits at the top of the letter ‘i’ actually has a name?! who knew! 😱 Continue reading “today i learned – fri 28th july 2017”

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!

wondering why? well, it’s about emojis of course! 😂 possibly my favourite things in the whole entire world … i think i actually prefer emojis to people 🙃.

#tdil that today – 17th july – was #worldemojiday 😱😱😱 a whole day devoted to emojis?! #life 🙌🏻 Continue reading “today i learned – mon 17th july 2017”

today i learned – fri 7th july 2017

when i was first told today’s fact, i 100% totally didn’t believe it … it was contested by multiple people in the room and it wasn’t until the internetweb was consulted that any of us let it go (let it goooo ❄️).

that said, now that i know this is a legit thing, i’m glad that i was told it (the person who started the discussion doesn’t deserve a credit though … she’s not worth it 😜 #playfulbanter #itsthatkindoffriendship)

#tdil that multiple people either die or are injured by stray bullets due to ‘celebratory gunfire’ every new year 😳 Continue reading “today i learned – fri 7th july 2017”

today i learned – sat 1st july 2017

ok, i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again – this year seriously needs to slow down! how on god’s green earth is it already july?!😳

another thing that seriously needs to slow down is the amount of pollen that is apparently floating around 😒 i literally don’t think i’ve stopped sneezing today 😭 … once again, i’ve digressed 😂🙈.

#tdil that you can use liquid nitrogen to make super cool (well, freezing cold) coke coconuts that are solid on the outside and liquid on the inside 😍. Continue reading “today i learned – sat 1st july 2017”

today i learned – thurs 29th june 2017

i’ll be completely honest, today’s fact came after a serious delve down the rabbit hole 🐰 that is the internetweb.

seriously, this fact was originally going to be about walking and the hadron collider … yet it ended up here?! don’t even ask 😂.

#tdil that thomas the tank engine didn’t actually feature in the original book – the three railway engines 🚂. dude appeared later on and stole the show 🙃. Continue reading “today i learned – thurs 29th june 2017”
