today I learned: the actor who played character random task in austin powers (the parody of odd job from 007) is serving a life sentence for torture and rape. yeesh. also, the last words of albert einstein were forever lost because he spoke them in german, a language that the nurse attending him did not speak. next, psychologist george m. stratton wore glasses in the 1890s that made him see everything upside down, and after 5 days his brain adapted to see things as normal. NEAT. finally, “raffi”, beloved childrens singer/musician (think “banana phone”) turned down an offer to play madison square garden because he was afraid the venue was too large to connect with the children in the audience.
