TIL the Wachowskis, the pair who directed The Matrix (and its... less than satisfactory sequels), are transgender siblings.

TIL that the whole "milk is good for the bones" thing, is actually a myth. My life is a lie. I drink milk a good bit. Not as much as water, but I still like it.....hmmm....you think you know something and then you find out you didn't.

TIL

 Bernd Brandes, a Berlin engineer, was willingly slaughtered so that he could be butchered and eaten by aspiring cannibal Armin Meiwes. Brandes had responded to an internet advertisement which Meiwes had placed for this purpose. In prison Meiwes became a vegetarian.

Thank you wikipedia. Can we appreciate this sentence: "In prison Meiwes became a vegetarian."?

Hope you're just complaining and nothing serious is going on. If the latter, good luck, you'll get through it.

TIL the English-translated version of the Sagwa theme song is literally just

“Best friend, Best friend
 
Sagwa is my best friend
 
Best friend, Best friend
 
Sagwa is my best friend
 
Sagwa, you're my best friend...
 
Sagwa...”

TIL

892: Sigurd the Mighty of Orkney strapped the head of his defeated foe, Máel Brigte, to his horse's saddle. Brigte's teeth rubbed against Sigurd's leg as he rode, causing a fatal infection.

Talk about a comeback!

Holy crap, just realized i'm descendant of Máel Brigte. That's pretty cool.

til my school is even worse than i had originally thought.

the lunch ladies were taking apples out of the garbage to rewash them and give them back to us the next day, and that a girl in my grade had a list of drug dealers on it and the school found out and she did not get in trouble. i heard a teacher talking about it in the hallway and it was confirmed real. the worst part is that it is a common fact that the drug dealers and druggies all live in the local hotel, (im surprised our small village even has a hotel) yet the police do nothing about it. heck, the place is right across the street from the police station!
