Let This Be A Lesson To You

It’s important for a person to find his purpose in life, I think. Today I think I discovered mine.

It is this: to learn things and share them with you so you don’t have to learn them yourself.

Today’s lesson is this: if you are planning to carry a 9-volt battery in your pocket, be sure to empty all the change in that pocket beforehand.

Why? Because if you don’t, that battery is likely to heat up hotter than you’d imagine a 9-volt battery could.

There’s your Thing Learned! ™ on the day.

    I learned today that it takes 120 years for a dead whale to be eaten when it hits the bottom of the ocean.

    I think yours has more day to day application though.
