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

it’s friyay againnnnn!!!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ it’s finally weekend ‘o’ clock … i hope that you’ve got lots planned ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿœ (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 ๐Ÿ˜ณ Continue reading “today i learned – fri 19th may 2017”
