today I learned:

  • due to concerns about the mistreatment of animals, guiness world records no longer accepts submissions regarding an animal’s weight.
  • in 2011, a fungus was found in the amazon that could live on a diet of PLASTIC. and it could do so in a anerobic environment (!!)
  • the fight scene on top of a train in skyfall was actually filmed on top of a real moving train, and daniel craig didn’t use a stunt double.
  • a software company buried a $1,000 prize deep in its terms of service to see if anyone actually read them. it took over 3,000 sales and 5 months before anyone asked about the prize.
