today I learned:

  • when wearing a tuxedo, it’s improper to wear a watch.
  • at 12 years old, jazz legend nina simone was preparing for her first recital, when her parents were moved from the front row to make room for some white people. as a result, she refused to sing until her parents got their seats back. they did.
  • in the ancient persian empire, men used to debate their ideas twice, once sober and once drunk, ’cause the idea had to sound good in both states to be considered a good idea.
  • da vinci was actually quite a funny guy, often putting fake wings and horns on lizards to scare people in the vatican. he’d also make these “giant balloons” and trap people in the corner with them. hahaha.
