today I learned
- the light we see from the north star was emitted in the year 1583.
- in france, germany, and switzerland, it is illegal to deny that the holocaust happened.
- in the US, mass shootings aren’t actually growing in frequency. in fact, evidence shows that they’ve become less and less frequent since the 90s!
- last year 1,458 new species of bacteria were discovered living in the bellybutton. additionally, researchers have found that everyone’s bellybutton “ecology” is unique like a fingerprint. side note: one volunteer’s bellybutton harboured bacteria that had only been previously found in japanese soil….and he had never been.
- bonus pour aucune raison: the founder of mitsubishi was an actual samurai. SO. COOL.
