today I learned: there was a bridge in southern hungary that was found to still be rigged with dynamite from WWII…in 1999. also, over the period of 200 years, 3 ships perished at the same location off the coast of whales, on the same day (december 5th) and all 3 only had one survivor. the 3 survivors all had the same name: hugh williams (!!!). next, butterflies can remember things they learned as caterpillars. aaand finally (and super excitingly), most bamboo species only flower once every several decades; and, when these species flower, every species of that plant in the world flowers at the same time, regardless of location, climate, or other environmental factors, for reasons scientists have yet to discern. how friggin poetic is that?!
