today I learned: monopoly was originally intended to teach the player the broken nature of capitalism. also, until it was forcibly suppressed during WWII, german was the second most widely spoken language in the US, with many local governments, schools, and newspapers operating in german. next, there is an app called ‘budist’ that will let you be woken up by a stranger. already very popular in russia, it is expected to expand internationally under the name ‘wakie’. finally, freddie mercury hated doing bohemian rhapsody live because he considered himself a mediocre pianist. aaaand there’s an australian band called “the beards, and every one of their 38 songs is about beards. impressive.
