Today I learned/TIL
« on: May 20, 2015, 10:55:33 am »
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.

No way, I was thinking about making a thread with this title last night.

Today I learned it's the H+ and OH- ions found in acids and alkalis that mess up the ionic bonds and hydrogen bonds that hold the tertiary structure of enzymes in place. I'd been wondering how pH denatured enzymes. woot woot biology

Just now, I learned that such a graph as y=√(x2-4) is a thing...
Who knew that a graph could just have a semi-definite solution in addition to the graph?

Today I learned that I'm probably the only person in the world who will play with his 3ds the night before an exam instead of study for said exam, and then still play with it the next morning instead of studying for that very same exam


Also that I have an insane amount of luck

I learned 19 in French, dix-nuef.
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.
