today I learned: carl sagan was denied tenure at harvard university and was unable to become a member of the national academy of sciences because his role as a ‘popularizer’ of science had caused other scientists to dislike him, claiming he wasn’t a ‘pure’ scientist. also, the US military has a secret, nearly silent type of velcro which reduces the ripping noise by over 95%. next, christian bale’s publicist got PTSD from being around him and wrote a book about how much of a dick he is. finally, oprah winfrey was sued for causing $11 million in damages to cattle farmers simply for mentioning that she would not eat another burger after a show about mad cow disease. no-reason-not-to-include-a-bonus-bonus: in switzerland, because they get lonely, it is illegal to keep just one guinea pig.
