TIL that a lot of the reason violence started in Nigeria is because of the military shooting hundreds of non violent protesting college students who didn't want oil drilling because it would ruin their homes. That was in the 90s.

TIL a lot of notable events from the 1800s, particularly those contributing to women's rights, took place in upstate New York. Overall, there were so many interesting aspects that aren't covered in history textbooks.

TIL that Christmas ornaments go on sale after Christmas. I guess this is pretty common knowledge but I didn't quite connect the dots (or expect so many good ones to be left)

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

German thingy of the day:
das Haus, die Häuser. This means "house", but not home. That would be Hause, but only when it has a preposition. "Zu Hause" means at home (even though "zu" means towards), and "Nach Hause" means towards home (even though nach means "after" ... or "towards" depending on the context ... or sometimes "at").

Today I learned that diamonds can come in brown, yellow, pink, red, orange, blue, and green!
I thought they only came colorless or white.
