This is great. I love random bits of knowledge that are gained while achieving other tasks. Thanks so much for sharing.
Now that’s friggin funny!
@Andrewjb3810 whoa… slow it down there buddy… you’re accomplishing other tasks?!? I bet you’re an overachiever! lol… I live in Hawaii - the land of many processes to do a singular task. 1st you think about it. Then you look at the tide report app on your phone. Then you think some more. Then you stand up and play with your dog. Then you remember you were supposed to do something- oh ya… the tides…
Then you grab your board, and while surfing remember you the task you were supposed to do and you think, maybe tmw…
Thanks for the spoiler alert!!
My passions/career choices are cooking and butchering…multitasking, over achieving, and efficiency are central parts of my life.
Not implying that my whole life is one big “to do”. As cliche as it may sound, I found my passions/purposes so it really doesn’t feel like work a lot of the time. It’s just “my thing”. But I have a LOT of energy naturally, even more in sobriety, so I love challenging myself and learning new things. And both career choices are crafts I can always build on.
Aug. 18th mind blowing random thought of the day: Play-Doh was originally invented and used to clean soot off of wallpaper during the 1930s when people burned coal to heat their homes. However, the product became obsolete when vinyl wallpaper and new heating methods were updated, and it was instead sold as a toy.

Aug. 19th mind blowing random thought of the day: There exists 34 large granite egg sculptures lining the coast of Iceland’s Merry Bay in honor of the 34 different species of bird that nest in the area. Each sculpture is the same shape, pattern, and color of the birds’ actual eggs, but the one that represents the official bird, the red-throated diver, was made bigger than the rest.
Aug. 20th mind blowing random thought of the day: It is estimated that approx. 400,000 construction workers died while building the Great Wall of China and were buried within the foundation, which has earned it the moniker as the “longest cemetery in the world.”
Perhaps a more commonly known fact, but mind blowing nevertheless.

Aug. 22nd mind blowing random thought of the day: In 1938, animator Ben “Bugs” Hardaway, who co-directed several Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies shorts, commissioned fellow director and artist Cal Dalton to design a rabbit for an upcoming project. When he finished, the model sheet was labeled “Bugs’ Bunny,” and after the still-nameless character appeared in a few cartoons, producer Leon Schlesinger looked at the old sketches for a name and noticed the caption. Charles Thorson was then hired in 1939 to redesign the rabbit with the name “Bugs Bunny” for a new animated short directed by Chuck Jones, which was officially released in 1940 entitled ‘Elmer’s Candid Camera.’
Beer in Russia was considered a soft drink up until 2011.
The average Russian drinks the equivalent of 32 pints of pure alcohol per year. Imagine that!
