today I learned: during the siege of jerusalem in 1917, the british, in an effort to capture the city, started to airdrop cigarettes filled with large doses of opium, hoping that the ottomans would get too high to fight. it worked. also, male dolphins assert their authority by forcefully raping other male (what a beautiful species, amiright?). next, researchers have printed out a beating mouse heart by using a modified printer with cells in the ink cartridge. finally, a synchronized, 1 million person toilet flush is being being planned in zimbabwe to clear up a backed-up sewer system (!!!). oh, and just FYI, jack daniels will sell you a barrel of whiskey for about $10,000. WHAT A STEAL.
