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.
