today I learned:
- 10,000+ toddlers age 2-3 are being prescribed ritalin and adderall to treat behavioural disorder. ’cause at 3 if you can’t sit still SOMETHING IS SERIOUSLY WRONG AND YOU MUST BE MEDICATED. right?
- a beautiful shot of a family outrunning a wave
- spaghetti carbonara was once considered a poor man’s dish because the 3 main ingredients were things the peasants were always certain to have on hand: bacon, a little cheese, and eggs. poor or not, sounds friggin’ great.
- a gif loop of a dog that’s having a really satisfyingly fun time
- japanese police fire paint-balls at fleeing vehicles so that other police vehicles can see them and to identify them at a later date if they get away. neat idea.
- an arctuarian message/channeling (different benevolent alien)
- well, a diver has found a 2,750 year-old coin in bulgaria….the oldest coin ever discovered.
- the more educated you are in a field, the more likely you are to buy generic brands related to that field. for example, pharmacists more likely to buy generic aspirin than name-brand. lesson here? you almost never have to buy name-brand stuff. UNLESS IT’S TOILET PAPER AND Q-TIPS.
- hahahahahah. I love dogs.
- jim carrey was offered to be the eighth doctor of doctor who, but he declined the role, ’cause he felt he would cause outrage amongst doctor who fans if the role wasn’t played by a fan.
- this is confusingly neat
- 40% to 50% of the genetic information found in your GI tract does not match anything that’s ever been classified before–not plant, animal, fungus, virus, or bacteria. we have no clue what it is. Biologists call it “biological dark matter.” SCIENCE.
- DON’T YOU TELL ME THEY’RE NOT AS SMART AS US
