“Today I Learned – Tuesday” 11 March 2014 (TILT)
So that time of week has come around yet again. Each week I’ll be scouring the interwebs for some little known but pretty cool knowledge and sharing that with you here. Without further ado, let’s check out the Top 5 this week. Click the pictures to go to the stories.
1. Jaws O’Reilly lives.
A Great White Shark is headed for Ireland. No, go back and read that again. I didn’t think there would ever be a need to put all of those words together in that order. Still, if you’ve got any people you don’t particularly get on with, can I suggest you book a kayaking trip off the west coast of Ireland for you all and then fail to show up at the last minute? You can’t be held responsible for nature. Fact. Source.
2. You have never seen this before
You have never seen this before. Click the picture. Seriously. Source.
3. What’s up, Doc?
“Carrots improve eyesight” was a myth created by the RAF to hide their early use of radar technology in WW2. Source.
4. Apocalypse Now
The US Centre of Disease Control actually has a Zombie Apocalypse plan. Source.
5. Robot Dog Discovery
Yeah, so not EXACTLY right but still, his name was Robot. In 1940, four young lads set out with Robot the dog and did a real Indiana Jones. They had a bit of a trek in the Dordogne and stumbled upon the Lascaux Cave Paintings. The most famous cave paintings in the world. Yes, that’s a thing. Source.
