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.

Seriously, wolverines are super uncommon fursonas.

Maybe I should change my fursona to a mitochondrion?

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