battledad today i learned TILT

TILT March 4 2014. Awesomeness.


So one of the joys of fatherhood is that it’s a constant learning process for you and your young charge. It set me to thinking that maybe a good thing to do would be to share some interesting facts and knowledge that you might not otherwise have thought about.

Starting today I’m going to do a weekly update of “stuff” that piques my (and hopefully your) interest. For want of something better, I’m going to dub this TILT for now (“Today I Learned” Tuesdays).

Let’s kick off with the top 5 things I learned today.

poison, danger

Antifreeze is made deliberately bitter as it’s the perfect tool for poisoning/murdering people. And cats apparently. Source.

pit of death, 300

HAAAIIIII-YAH!

The “Pit of Death” in the film “300” actually exists. Source.

baby brain, pregnancy brain

Mmmmhmmm

When a woman bears a son, male DNA material can remain in her body protecting her from Alzheimer’s among other things. “Preggers Brain” exists! Source.

squirrel, red squirrel

I r love you

Squirrels are inherently kind and will adopt baby squirrels if they notice the parents don’t return. Those furry little bundles of loveliness. Source.

There you have it, I do feel like I’ve truly learned something today 🙂 Got something to share? Drop me a comment below 🙂
