There is a delightful little website I recently discovered called “Today I Found Out.”
Today, I found out how trick candles work. They’re really quite simple, really. Just a little extra mineral that’s highly flammable at low heat. No big deal.
I also found out how Albert Einstein got his wife to agree to a divorce: he promised her the prize money if he ever won the Nobel Peace Prize (he did, in 1921 – guess he thought he wouldn’t win).
So poke around, read some fun stuff, add the site to your Google Reader. You’ll learn something new every day!
Oh, and yesterday I found out that my dad is a real-life Sandlot kid. More on that soon…
