today I learned: colourblind people can have advantages to the military as it is easier for them to spot camouglage colours because the differences in texture and brightness are more apparent. also, carbon monoxide is used in the US to make meat appear fresher. this practice is banned in canada (woo!), japan, singapore, and the european union. next, in 1861, a slave took over on a confederate ship and delivered it to the union. he was later given the ship to command during the civil war. after the war, he bought the house he was a slave in and became a US congressman. finally, columbia university has developed an artificial tree that passively soaks up carbon dioxide from the air using “leaves” that are 1,000 times more efficient than true leaves that use photosynthesis. sicko bonus: in the late 19th century, korean women were normally wearing clothes that exposed their breasts while being quite concealing otherwise. here are some pictures you SICKOS!!!!!!!!
