today I learned:
- in 1986, the red hot chili peppers were given $5000 by EMI music to make a demo tape, and set aside $2000 to spend on heroin and cocaine.
- if a guide dog judges a command being unsafe, he/she will refuse to do it. this is called “intelligent disobedience”
- when filming star wars episode I- the phantom menace, ewan mcgregor (drool) kept imitating the noise of the lightsaber during his fight. george lucas kept having to explain that the sound would be added by the special effects people later on. ewan kept having to apologize, saying he was “getting carried away”
- there are nerves at the end of your rectum that distinguish between gas and poop. sometimes, these nerve endings become confused, hence, sharts.
