Tidbits Are Fun
Posted 10/9/14
We all have those pieces of information we know that overall are pretty useless but we remember nonetheless. They're called tidbits, and I'm sure that we all have them.

Like Charles the Mad thought he was made of glass.

A billion something years ago, spiders were the size of modern cows due to adaptive radiation.

Hitler farted a lot.

In the past, Japanese people would give people of high status, i.e. celebrities, toothbrushes as a way of showing respect.





We all have these weird bits of info we know. Share them with each other and let's all get smarter.

DNA stands for Deoxyribonucleic Acid

Sharks never run out of teeth, when they lose them from biting prey they just grow back.

Sharks are also the only fish in the sea to blink with both eyes at the same time.

Going back quite a while now, one of the medical cures was to drill holes in peoples skulls. This is because they supposedly believed headaches were caused by evil spirits.

Going back to Wild Western times, Custer who fought in the Battle of The Little Big Horn essentially dug his own grave. He turned down gatling guns because he felt he didn't need them, had shitty weapons, raced a day ahead of the backup supply train with his men, and in doing so also left them fatigued.

Katanas are banned over here in the UK.

Dolphins impregnate females by generally raping them. They'll get into groups and fight the female to violenty force her to stay in place followed by mating with her.

Penicillin was supposedly discovered by accident, when a scientist named Alexander Fleming discovered mould on one of his petri dishes which he often kept lying around due to general untidyness. He decided to study it further and found the mould had created a bacteria free zone around itself. However, he wasn't responsible for it being mass-produced, and multiple people have questioned the likeliness of said theory all coming together.

The shit you remember, eh?
