van gogh perception

today I learned: over 2000 years ago, eratosthenes estimated the earth’s circumference using good ol’ math, without ever leaving egypt, and he was accurate within 2%. incredible. also, when several board games similar to monopoly became popular, the creators of monopoly bought them out, effectively creating a monopoly on monopoly. hahaha. next, beehives are made up of regular hexagons because that is the most efficient tessellating shape, giving the most storage for the least energy and material used in the building process. drooool. fiiiinally (saved the best for last as per usual), van gogh was friggin COLOURBLIND. click on the title of this post to check out how HE saw his paintings. so. gd. interesting.
