    This was yesterday, but I learned that CB radios are still useful for knowing when and where traffic jams and construction ends on interstate highways. My cousin's little experiment of bringing out the old CB radio I have to use on the road paid off.
    Winterman is coming through the forest down to his Chrimbus cave inside the woods. Now's the time to tell him everything you want inside your Chrimbus bush!

    TIL: That I never want To own a large dog again in my life. Do you have any idea how much he shits? He's not even **my** dog, yet sole responsibility is on me To walk him and clean up the 15 lbs of shit he lays every few days. The fact that you complain about what a burden he is EVERY SINGLE DAY OF YOUR LIFE does not make this any less stressful for anyone. But its so fucking typical. Spreading fucking misery and making everything 1000x worse than they are is literally the only thing you're good at.

    At 7 months old Japanese babies can distinguish "r" from "l" just as well as American babies. At 10 months old they have lost that ability because their brain has started adjusting to their mother tongue and deletes what isn't needed.

    that my great uncle spent most of his life celebrating his birthday on the wrong day and didn't know it. he found out it was wrong when he went to sign up for social security and got his birth certificate and looked and saw the date was different by about a month.

    to be fair he was one of 12 kids and was born in the early 20th century.

    While the modern drinking straw was patented in 1888, people have been drinking from straws for much longer. Ancient Sumerians drank their beer with a straw and the oldest preserved straw is 5000 years old and made of gold with lapilazuli inlays.

    New life goal: drinking from a jewel-inlaid crazy straw.

    I learned that sometimes, it's okay not to do absolutely everything in one day. And at the same time, it's okay to at least push yourself to try.

    Does beer taste better through a straw? Soda and chocolate milk does. But not at the same time ick.

    Someone actually posted a $5,000 reward for his/her lost West Highland Terrier.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.
