Today I learned that evil does walk the earth. And that it is very nattily dressed.
If nothing else the 40-something wet weather gives me a perfect excuse to wear my thick, beloved grey hoodie. All the Snuggies on earth combined can't come close to matching the plush comfort and toastiness of this thing.
TIL that it was Bob Hoskins who gave a voice to the hard men of 80s British breakfasts:
There is only so much one can say about the weather, and then we're in nosy questions territory...
TIL that I am, in fact, kind of color blind. I took this test and did really badly. Also, I found out that Sesame Street's Ernie is orange, not brown. This has rocked my whole worldview.
TIL that dragon fruit is nowhere near as awesome as it looks.
TIL that it's never too early in the fall to get sick.
TIL That I can be very nasty when I have insomnia. Says the now-broken object I threw at the wall.
Today I learned that I am somewhat more impulsive than I thought.
496 is a perfect number
TIL that in Arkansas atheists are prohibited from holding office or testifying in court.
Arkansas is only one of the six states in the US that bans atheists from holding public office.
TIL that, although six states have laws on the books banning atheists from public office, the Supreme Court ruled in 1961 that those laws are unconstitutional and unenforceable. Thank God. (Yes, pun intended.)
TIL that six states technically prohibit atheists from holding public office.
Kim, I've seen this happen with a couple of pics you've posted previously (or not seen, to be more accurate) and I think what's going on is that your album permissions aren't set to let everyone view images. You might want to check to see whether your settings are for pics to be visible only to those on your friends list.
^thank you - I will do some investigating abt that!
Today I learned that my coworkers are lazy pieces of crap who decided that I should have to do all their fucking work for them.
..what a filibuster is. Genuinely fascinating as we don't use term here.
The English term "filibuster" derives from the Spanish filibustero, itself deriving originally from the Dutch vrijbuiter, "privateer, pirate, robber" (also the root of English "freebooter"). The Spanish form entered the English language in the 1850s, as applied to military adventurers from the United States then operating in Central America and the Spanish West Indies such as William Walker. (See Filibuster (military).)
Today I learned that my country isn't as stupid as I thought it was.
Today I learned that my Nazi Goldfinger Mutant Boss is leaving the store. *happy dance*
