today I learned: when the sears catalog was first printed on glossy paper, people wrote in to complain because they could no longer use the catalog as toilet paper. also, a ship abandoned off the coast of alaska in 1931 was spotted, still adrift in the arctic, in 1969. next, a complete set of encyclopedia britannica costs around $1,400, while wikipedia is funded entirely by donations, has 60 times the number of articles, and has an almost identical error/omission rate in a single-blind study. finally, cats show you their bumhole as a way of telling you they’re comfortable with you (not, contrary to popular maureen green belief, because they’re reminding you of your slave-like status and your need to clean their daily poos)
