today I learned: albert einstein and his first wife had a daughter, but no one seems to know what happened to her after she was a year old. also, a study found that while men were only aroused by porn that fit their sexual orientation (so, if heterosexual, they’d only be aroused by hetero porn), whereas women were aroused by all porn regardless of its orientation. next, the screenwriter of “cast away” deliberately stranded himself on an isolated beach for a week to experience how tom hanks’ character would have to search for water, food, and shelter. during this time, a volleyball washed up on shore, inspiring the “wilson” character. aaand finally, james madison proposed the creation of a national brewery and the addition of a “secretary of beer” to the cabinet. hahaha. friday bonus: mike rowe (host of dirty jobs) used to be a professional opera singer. awesome.
