today I learned: falling while water skiing or on a slide can cause a flood of water to enter the anus or vagina in an injury called “water ski douche”. also, in 1967, the first woman to run the boston marathon as a numbered entry was chased by the race organizer shouting “GET THE HELL OUT OF MY RACE AND GIVE ME THOSE NUMBERS!”, while her boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield. next, the manhattan project (a research and development program created by the US, the UK, and canada) secretly tested the effects of radiation on its own citizens, including injecting pregnant women and feeding school boys radioactive oatmeal. nice. and finally, the second person ever to go down niagara falls in a barrel survived the feat. later, he tripped on an orange peel and died.
