    I just love that there is a word for this, because someone must have experienced it at some point.

    Today I learned that while Magellan is commonly credited as the first person to circumnavigate the globe, a battle injury rendered him quite dead long before his ship completed the voyage.

    People go down water slides faster if they're sitting up and weigh more than 120 lbs than laying down.

    Researched random, various, and quite honestly, uselss little fact about nearly useless things and whatnot.

    Label theory, found it on wikipedia today, is a strange idea. I don't think I agree with it at all... It seems like some sort of absurdly nihilistic pseudo-philosphy, masked as some sort of theoretical physcology. Bah, perhaps I'm wrong about the thing... Perhaps people suffering from schizophrenia, or depression, or autism, or ASPD, aren't really suffering from those things at all! Let's stop spending money on research and medicine in order to give them a 'normal' (har har, stupid labelers) life! Hellz yeah.

    If we don't call people things... They won't be them... Next step: we cover our eyes and plug our ears and the world will be made perfect! WHOAH SOUNDS SCIENTIFIC!

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    I learned that it has become increasingly harder to learn new things that are in fact also useful to me in some form or another.

    I learned my name in scottish gaelic, with probable grammerical and spelling errors on my part since I think I screwed up the translation, would be Caitraeca Nic a' Caeb.
