    What did you learn today?

    I thought this could be a good thread just for sharing things we learned on a day to day basis. Sometimes I watch videos on Youtube and I am like WOW! I never knew that! Only, the people in my life could care to hear what I have to say or what I learned. They are too busy focusing on Trump, money, and work. So yeah, if you learned something today (or any day after this) feel free to share!!

    Today I actually learned that the reason we call a "Thunderstorm" just that and not a "Lighteningstorm" is because we (as humans) used to track the storm by sound. You can tell just how many miles away a storm is by listening to the thunder and counting the seconds in between. So we tracked them by sound (thunder) not light (sight).

    I learnt that you can turn any phrase into a hotlink in emails.

    Feels like I should have known this a long time ago tho...

    Fun thread idea. TIL that cute, cuddly sea otters sometimes engage in "hostage behavior" where a (usually) male sea otter will "kidnap" a baby sea otter and basically attempt to drown it; he won't release his hostage unless the baby's mother gives up her food she's carrying, at which point there's a literal "exchange" baby safe and sound in exchange for food. Crazy, huh?

    Today I learned that even if your phone updates itself when the clocks go forward/backward, your alarm clock app might not!

    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"
