QI has taught me that Koalas have fingerprints that are almost impossible to distinguish from human prints!  And platypus(es) don't have nipples, they SWEAT MILK for their young.  Go team Australian animals!

Afraid not, also I learned today that the last emperor of constantinople, after the city fell, became suitably enraged and charged the invading turks with a group of 50 men, without his cloak or crown and died like an ordinary soldier. Also that John the blind of Bavaria actually charged the english at the battle of crecy whilst tied to two other knights, so that he could still fight, he managed to kill 4 enemy knights before he was finally brought down.

Say what you want for medieval people, they knew how to go out in style.

Today I learned that there is no right way to try to talk to females.  No matter what kind of tact, straightforwardness, and honestly I use with them they are given some devine right to take it the wrong way.  This of course leads me having to apologizie for my miscommunication.

So learning from this experience I'm just gonna go ahead and interpret things stated to me however I want.  Because it's never my fault for selective hearing it is theirs for not making it clear enough.

NPR's Scott Simon (of weekend edition) is a Buffy fan.  I learned this after NPR's Madeleine Brand derisively dismissed staying home and watching Buffy on Valentine's Day on Day to Day.  I tweeted about it in a tongue-in-cheek, faux, outrage.  Pretty soon Weekend Edition's twitter account weighed in on it, and Scott Simon set up a twitter account today, where he confirmed it.

The power of social media I guess!

I learned that it is difficult to spread peanut butter onto a sheet of nori.

I also learned that a peanut butter nori roll is difficult to chew and does not taste very good.  I fail at snacking today.

Though, honestly, I think we could've all predicted that outcome.

I mean, if you do the scientific method like in 8th grade science it is like:

Ask Question: What would happen if you ate nori and peanut butter together?
Gather the facts: Nori is a bunch of smushed and dried algae. Peanut butter is a bunch of smushy peanuts.
Construct hypothesis: This cannot turn out well at all. Oh geez.
Experiment: Oh lord, it was not a good idea.
Draw Conclusion: Seriously, why don't you have rice or bread? One or the other would've been a good start to a better snack.
Examine Hypothesis: Fuck, was that ever true. It is not like peanut butter and chocolate at all.
Results and Future Work: Do not try that again.

That might work, actually. I mean, the nori would be kind of salty, which will offset the sweetness of the chocolate. That is the premise behind chocolate and peanut butter, and chocolate and bacon I think. Chocolate covered pretzels... the salty/sweet combination has been done a lot.


That beign said, the seaweedy taste of the nori might be too overpowering. It's been a while since I have had it, so I can't remember the taste of it that well. Maybe little nori bits might work better in that case. Maybe in biscuits!

A few days ago, I learned what my girlfriend's wrist looks like in an x-ray. She slipped on some ice, stiff-armed her landing on her hands, and crushed the fuck out of her wrist with the impact. That night was not fun.

I also learned that it is totally possible to keep an arm elevated and iced during sex.

Today I learned that when you see a shop named "ye olde something something", that's a misspelling. The "y" letter is really the letter "thorn", which represents the "th" sound in "the". So it's really "the olde something something". So suck on that, PCRPG producers!

There are also English families with names like "ffoulkes" where the double f is just a misrepresentation of a fancy script capital F - which makes it even sillier when they write it as "Ffoulkes".  (This is not related to Welsh, in which a single "f" is pronounced as English "v", and "ff" like English "f".)

The search for some athletes lost at sea was called off today. Normally, this wouldn't teach me anything. But today as I went about my business, it occurred to me that most Minnesotans have never seen or been on an ocean before. This was made suddenly clear to me by the fact that whenever I went out today people were babbling on about sharks and shit as being likely explanations as to why those poor bastards never made it back. Guys, sharks didn't kill those guys. The ocean killed them because they were 30 miles offshore in a 21 foot boat and because the ocean has no respect for human life whatsoever.
