today I learned: portabello mushrooms, button mushrooms, and white mushrooms are all the same mushroom at different levels of maturity. also, until 2008, walmart de mexico was paying its employees with vouchers only redeemable at walmart. WHAT!!!!! next, it is now illegal in 21 states for employers to refuse to hire someone who smokes or uses tobacco products (!!!!). aaaand finally, eddie van halen actually started out playing the drums. he bought a drum set and his brother bought a guitar. when his brother got better at the drums than he did, eddie said “ok, f*** you, I’ll play your guitar”. monday bonus: goldeneye 64 was created by 9 people, 8 of which had never worked on a game before (also, the multiplayer was an afterthought, created by one guy)
