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.
