today I learned: general eisenhower ordered every citizen in gotha, germany to tour the concentration camp ohrdrug. after the mayor of the town and his wife did so, they went home and hanged themselves. also, hugh heffner advocated for gay rights in the 1950s. next, convicted pedophiles in russia can choose between jail time or “chemical castration” (which, upon researching, isn’t as bad as it sounds. actually, it’s what many of us are doing today….taking birth control. yep. juuuust a bunch of estrogen to lower the good ol’ sex drive). finally, prison inmates often become addicted to honey buns due to flavor deprivation. wowee.
