today I learned: hundreds of years ago, most people would go to sleep early, wake up for about an hour in the middle of the night and do various things, and then go back to bed for a ‘second sleep’. also, when “lose yourself” won the academy award for best original song, not only was eminem not there to accept the award, he was sleeping during the ceremony because he didn’t think he’d win. next, hunter s. thompson typed out the great gatsby in its entirety several times so he would know what it felt like to write a masterpiece. finally, christopher walken does not like to be called “christopher” because it sounds “like a sneeze”. hahahah. oh, and, er, by the way…the mars rover spotted a “metallic arm” sticking out of a rock yesterday. yeah.
