I recently realized that red velvet cake was actually chocolate cake. with food coloring. wow. This made me think to all my past realizations and wonder whether I'm just oblivious to obvious things or not.

Then! today, for as long as I've been a member of crunchyroll, my computer froze on an advertisement for crunchyroll. the very beginning. with the website for devices. It had the crunchyroll symbol. The way I was laying down made me see that the orange moon in front of smaller orange moon behind a white dot that's possibly another moon was actually an anime eye.... or is it?

I don't know anymore. You tell me


Haha, someone said that too and I just basically pretended that I knew red velvet was chocolate cake. Although I am not particularly fond of the cake, I just don't get the people around me crazing over that cake. The taste is not that impressive anyways. XD haha.

Probably in texting... JK and lol... I always though jk meant joke, then somebody told me it's for just kidding. so yeah ^_^;; haha.

Until last week, I was completely oblivious to the fact that, in Arrowhead water, there's an arrowhead in the mountain.

I've drunk it for years and only just realized it.

o_o Red velvet cake is chocolate cake with food coloring...

Well, I remember when I found out that there isn't any cocoa in white chocolate.

The fact that 0.999... and 1 are actually mathematically equal, for one, and the reasoning for 0! and n^0 both equalling 1 being due to 1's status as the multiplicative identity (i.e. the empty product convention).

Well, ok, maybe these aren't things that 'everyone else already knew', but I got all excited when I realised and told my equally nerdy friends, only to be met with resounding chuckles and 'pah's

There was also the time I suddenly realised what the word 'zeroth' actually was. That was an epiphany and a half...


Huh... 'zerr-oth law of thermodynamics'?! What the hell's a 'zerr-oth'?! Isn't that from Doctor Who?


Turns out I was thinking of Scaroth.

Zeroth: 0th. MINDBLOWN.

I recently discovered Santa Claus didn't have an E in it. I always spelled his last name Clause. As in the grammatical term. I'm so embarrassed.

Like in physics. I learned that atom don't touch. And if everything is made of atoms, but they don't touch, then by thinking we're touching something, we're completely wrong!!

The reason things move when "touched" is because of the repulsion. AND Our nerves sense how close the object is, the force it is applying, the temperature radiating from it, etc. thus creating a sense of "touch"

Haha, So, the annoying little sibling "I'm not touching you!" is indeed correct.

I thought everybody knew this from maths teachers trying to show off or doing it to torment their students as they try and fathom the truth of the matter.

I didn't know bunnies and rabbits are the same thing. Always thought they were different or at least bunnies were babies.

I remember being very amused when I was watching a show and a character said Santa is an anagram for Satan. xD But i suppose that's not something everyone else knows...?

Also I didn't understand the whole arrow in FedEx thing for years. My friends always said it and I just pretended to go along with them until I found out eventually

Not really recently at all, but from the age of like 5 to when I started learning Japanese I thought sayounara was a Spanish word.


People here in the US say it sometimes to be clever or cute or whatever, and to someone like me who really knew zero Japanese before, I thought it was Spanish. I thought it was like adios or something

Not sure if everyone else knew it but I recently learned that the taste of artificial banana flavoring is based on an old variety of banana that was wiped out by disease decades ago and that's why it tastes nothing like actual bananas.
