Fact-checking.

Standard

Things I learned this week:

  1. Kaiser Wilhelm spent a fair bit of time in England as a child, visiting his grandmother. Y’know, Queen Victoria.
  2. Some people I know really don’t ‘get’ food and nutrition even a little bit. (I was told that it is better to drink cider than beer if one is trying to lose weight because it doesn’t have white/wheat flour in it.)
  3. I feel sorry for Jada Pinkett Smith because she says she doesn’t eat for pleasure, just nourishment, to keep her physique.
  4. Shiraz is largely a New World wine designation.
  5. I’m one of those gossip-hound scumbags who really wants to read Joe Eszterhas’s book.
  6. I have no idea how to help a friend through a divorce-like situation from 6000km away.
  7. People really have no qualms about posting Mad Men spoilers in headlines. I’m still two weeks behind, but know most of what happens in those episodes, and that sucks.
  8. It took almost a year of painstaking/backbreaking work to get through the three sarcophagi and layers of other stuff that King Tut was buried in.
  9. I’m so good at procrastinating in the mornings so that I simultaneously phone in a blog entry and still manage to be running late.
