today I learned:
- this year, a huge steel sculpture filled with human blood and tissue samples will be lowered into mariana’s trench.
- mel blanc’s natural voice was that of sylvester the cat without the lisp.
- sleeping on the job is acceptable in japan, and viewed as exhaustion from working hard. some people even fake it to look committed to their job.
- a 7 month old puppy named geo pushed a 10 year old boy out of the way of an oncoming out-of-control truck and took the impact himself. what a hero.
