today I learned:

  • 1 in every 100 american adults are in prison. the US has more people in prison than china.
  • netflix uses disguised warehouses and unmarked trucks for security purposes.
  • iranians held a candlelight vigil on 9/11 2001 to express sympathy and support for the american people.
  • stephen hawking has survived for over 50 years after being diagnosed with a disease that only 4% of people survive for 10 years with (!)
  • in the 60s, the CIA sponsored a harvard study where undergrads were humiliated and subjected to “brutalizing psychological experiments”. the student who had the worse reaction to the experiments was ted kaczynski, who later became the “unabomber”
