In my opinion, one of the greatest things about being alive is that you can always learn something new. Think about it. No single person who has ever lived has ever been in possession of every single scrap of human knowledge. Therefore, every single person can learn something new.
We're living in a time where mind-blowing realizations and discoveries are being made every single day. Even better is the fact that a lot of these discoveries are shared on the Internet for us all to learn from! These discoveries range from the big, science stuff — like the fact that a new species of tardigrade was recently discovered in a parking lot in Japan — to the more mundane, everyday stuff. Today, we're going to be discussing more of the latter.
Be honest — how many of the following things did you already know? I'm guessing most of them might be brand new to you, and that's just fantastic. Get ready to have your mind blown!
