Found out anything good/interesting lately?


#1

I haven’t, would be nice to hear if you have though. Please note this is just a thread to establish whether or not you’ve found out anything lately not for discussion of the thing you’ve found out.

I’m joking of course, it’s for the discussion of the thing you’ve found out :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Got any official observations in your passport?
#2

Not really

I watched a Sarah Silverman standup thing on Netflix the other day, on which I learnt

  • Squirrels lose 80% of the acorns they hide

  • This is how new acorn trees grow


#4

never knew squirrels were so inefficient


#5

I like Sarah Silverman conversationally a lot more than I like her act. That is a good/interesting thing to have found out.

It’s like how on the Serengeti or wherever all the trees are in weird positions because of how they’ve just grown where an elephant or whoever has shit out a seed or whatever.


#6

the stand up was very patchy - but yes she seems like a good egg


#7

I’ma read her book soon I think.

Yesterday I found out that Saffron’s friend in Chesney Hawkes’ video for ‘I Am The One And Only’ is played by Lucy Alexander from Homes Under The Hammer:


#9

This is neither good or interesting IMO but it is a thing that you’ve found out lately so it will have to do. Thanks for your contribution.


#10

Today I found out that Ant isn’t a very nice person.


#11

You’re gonna find out a lot more about my fists if you’re not careful, friend…


#12

That’s not very nice.


#13

Sorry about saying those things. I regret them immensely.

I just learned about the Rock in Opposition movement from the 70s. It was a loose collective of artists who made dense and difficult instrumental music “in opposition” to the punk and disco that was popular at the time.

Interesting music, but imagine the thinkpieces if this happened today.


#16

I love how much good stuff exists as a result of the thought “fucking hell disco is shit isn’t it”


#17

I enjoyed it a lot. it wasn’t especially hilarious but it was consistently engaging. the footage of her drugged up at the end was a nice touch


#18

we went to bed before the end - I’ll take a look at that bit later


#19

it’s basically just what she described in her set. I assumed she had been exaggerating a bit but nah, all true


#20

I recently learned:

The T Rex was around closer in time to us than it was the Stegosaurus. This blows my mind.

I thought I had some more but can’t think.
