today I learned: victoria woodhull (an american leader of the woman suffrage movement) ran for president in 1872 before women could vote, and nominated the freed slave frederick douglas as her running mate. fanfriggintastic. also, a scientist, to prove that stomach ulcers were caused by bacteria and not stress, drank a beaker of the bacterium. he developed stomach ulcers and won the nobel prize in medicine. next, in 2009, burger king launched a campaign that if you unfriended 10 friends on facebook, you were entitled to a free whopper. the ex-friend would then receive a message explaining that their friendship was less valuable than a whopper. hahaha. finally, leo fender, the inventor of fender guitars, never knew how to play the guitar. go figure.
