    Default What Was the Last Thing You Learned?

    You learn something new every day, so post it here! No matter how trivial, insignificant, or super interesting it is, post the last thing you learned.

    I'll start.

    In the late 1950s, the United States planned on nuking the moon.
    That's nice.

    I haven't learned American History deeply when I was in middle school, so...

    Learned about the effects that Mexican War had on development of Civil War, while translating a script of a lecture on the topic.

    I learned that the film "Brave Little Toaster" was based on a novel written in 1980.

    That the code for a whole seeded watermelon is 4032. Good to know since people buy them this time of year.

    I learned that some Brits, New Zealanders, and Australians spell "jail" "gaol", basically like how some Americans spell it "gray" and others (like me) "grey".

    There always seem to be new British alternative spellings that I never knew existed. Just about a month ago I learned about "poseur", and now "gaol"? It's... it's weird. And now I feel kinda stupid.

    Burrowing Owls can change their vocal sounds and make a Rattesnake hiss as a defense mechanism to scare away predators who invade its home.

    I learned that the mantis shrimp has a punch strong enough to cause water to spontaneously boil.
    That's nice.

    Learned what makes Amnesia games different from other 'usual' games with monsters; no weapons given to the players. -_-;

    Technically, the last thing I just learned is what Racoon said.

    But before that, I learned that Komodo Dragons can reproduce asexually.

    That, at high temperatures, electrons that orbit nuclei in atoms are no longer there, and the nuclei move at fast speeds. Although nuclei are positively charged and thus should repel each other, they move at such fast speeds that it's possible for them to collide and fuse together to form a new nucleus. IT'S CALLED NUCLEAR FUSION. It's the bare bones of it, I know, but I only learned it today. >:
