  • Today I Learned -

    Thought i should start this up here in ACG. I go to reddit every now and then, and one of their sections is called TIL - Today i learned. the premise is simple if you learn or see a new interesting fact link it to the thread.

    Try to refrain from political motivators, or personal insults - IE - Today I Learned <insert political group here> now oppose the <insert political document> , or TIL <insert member's name here> is a <insert derogatory term here>.


    I'll start with a favorite from today

    Today I learned, in 1957 scientists learned that beer can survive a nuclear holocaust!

    Every fallout shelter should now remember to include the beer right beside the twinkies!

                Today I learned when planning to murder President James A. Garfield, Charles Guiteau chose an ivory handled revolver because he wanted it to look nice when they put it up for display in a museum, after he used it.
