today I learned:
- there is a waterfall in minnesota called “the devil’s kettle” that empties half its contents into a sinkhole. the outlet has yet to be found.
- dr. seuss, despite being an internationally renowned children’s author, never had children of his own, and even admitted that, “in mass, they terrify me”
- there’s a town in ontario called “swastika”. there have been several attempts to change the name but the town fights back saying, “to hell with hitler, we had the swastika first”
- the octopus is so intelligent, the UK considers them honorary vertebrates for the purposes of animal cruelty laws.
