today I learned:
- heineken manufactured a bottle shaped like a brick in order to deal with the housing problem in the caribbean, y’know, to build with.
- it costs $44,563 to keep someone in prison for a year in california, pretty much the same amount as it costs for room and board at harvard…
- after the australian 1 and 2 cent coins were phased out in 1991, they were then melted down and used in the sydney olympics as bronze medals. smart.
- the world health organization classifies tanning beds as a level 1 carcinogen, the same as plutonium and cigarettes. when are we ever gonna finally believe them?
