today I learned: researchers recently discovered that smoking “rots” the brain by damaging memory, learning, and reasoning. also, a woman named irena sendler worked as a plumber in the warsaw ghetto during WWII, and saved over 2,500 jewish children, smuggling many of them out in her tool box. she was nominated for the nobel peace prize, and lost to al gore. next, whenever you hear the sound of a bald eagle on tv (think: the colbert report), you’re actually hearing a red-tailed hawk. bald eagles actually have more of a chirp. finally, there is a separate movie created from the deleted scenes of “anchorman” called “wake up ron burgundy”. you’re welcome.
