TIL that binary code is a right to left sequence of doubling numbers. When a 1 fills the place value, that number is added to any other 1 place values. The values form a type of alphabet and that to my knowledge is how code works.

TIL how nerf guns work, with magic of engineering.
Just like a burn will linger, she crept between my fingers, and to my body she has now become a new disease. A fog to cloud vision, more like an apparition. She made a mess and now abandoned me.

It just seems like a weird thing to me, like adding milk to a can of fizzy Pepsi.

TIL that I can have up to 100 items out from the library all at once. They have given me a great and terrible power.

I have no NEED to check out 100 items. But now I WANT to check out 100 items.

TIL in 1982, a man tied helium balloons to a chair and planned to climb to 30 feet. He flew up to 1600 feet instead, and an airplane pilot saw him, and reported "a man in a chair with a gun".

I saw a thread like this on another forum, thought it might fit in well here?  Anyways, today I learned that Japanese schools don't hire janitors or custodians, but instead make the students clean, to teach them respect and responsibility.

TIL how bad BO3 is on last gen. Like, "graphics isnt everything" and all that shit blah blah but its primitive as shit and its missing campaign. Like, props to the devs getting to actually work but man it looks worse than Black Ops 1.

I feel sorry for last gen. No campaign or DLC.
But, at least they still got zombies mode so thats something I guess.
Strength and Honour!


Still proud of this rainbow!
