today I learned: sling bullets dating from the 4th century B.C. have been found with the words “take that” inscribed on them. also, the two leading cymbal manufacturers (zildjian and sabian) are founded on a sibling rivalry. next, edgar allen poe’s only full length novel featured a scene in which a cabin boy named richard parker is cannibalized by his shipwrecked crew mates. 46 years later, a real ship wrecked crew actually did cannibalize their cabin boy…whose name was richard parker. finally, japanese people traditionally eat KFC for christmas dinner, thanks to a successful marketing campaign 40 years ago. KFC is so popular that customers must place their christmas order two months in advance (!!!!). oh, and fox news is banned from broadcasting over public airwaves in canada, cause the law forbids lying 🙂
