Sharing is caring. I hope you can find something new or interesting by checking out this list. Each item on the list has a link to the original article so you can learn more

Writing this is also a great way to review things I’ve read during the month and commit them to long-term memory.

Why not take a look?

  1. The world is now more covered with barbed wire than at any point in history. Forming a terrifying web around our planet, it has become one of the most utilized inventions in modern times.
  2. 232 is the medium number of hours required to complete a Pokédex in Pokémon go based on statistics calculated by this author. He estimated from his data it would take most between 500–700 hours to complete. The fastest time was 120 hours by an American called Nick Johnson but he was extremely lucky.
  3. Sometimes the Taliban also enjoy listening to music. Apparently, it’s good for them but not for everyone else.
  4. There is a type of joke that only people who have frontal lobe damage would find funny. A traumatic head injury can change brain chemistry and entirely shift a person’s personality.
