I agree! Tbh some wild birds are super super scary. One time, this bird that had fallen off its nest started to head straight for me and I smashed my nose into a wall. And another time I was running and I accidentally was starting to run when a huge flock of pigeons landed on the ground and when I tried to stop (I was terrified of talons at the time) I ducked down onto the concrete and got a nasty scrape that took weeks to heal.

TIL that The Last Supper is really degraded due to its painting techniques and most of the images we see of it are enhanced to make it clearer

Also the Mona Lisa has that yellow colour because the Louve doesn't want to clean it, the original colours would have been slightly different

Yeah they're pretty much unused by most nowadays but a lot of events will use them to prevent products from being stolen.

TIL that I really like death metal.

lol look up the democratic party values of that time, they're basically the opposite now. Political parties have changed a ton over the couple hundred years in our country.

True, but both parties still have corruption
and try to blame the other for something they did.
That's why I stay independent. Both parties have good ideas and both have some not so good ideas
