You learn something new every day

  • Creatine does not help with sore muscles. I was previously under the impression that it did.
  • MSM is completely out of your system 12 hours after taking it, hence the need to take it twice a day. This thoery was originally proven via testing on racing animals (greyhounds, horses et al)
  • There is new technology that is able to sort through audio archives to find individual words a person had said at one point and form full sentences for people who are now dead, incapacitated in some way, etc. An example was given on the radio today, but I didnt catch who the celebrity in question was if anyone reads this and knows, please post a comment here....also if there is a name for the technology that would be awesome to know...Id add it to the appropriate day's list
  • Learned about the "Tetris Effect" phenomenon. I havent played Tetris in a while (I really only excel at the GameBoy platform and I havent dug it out in a while), but when I would actively play I would get those dreams. In fact, considering the fact that I have chronic insomnia, I recall pleasantly drifting off to sleep to Tetris playing out in my head which might just prompt me to give that another shot here soon

Every day (at least Ill try my best) I will post as many little "factoids" that I learned that day. This way I can look back later on and see exactly when I learned something AND, perhaps more importantly, RE-learn what I will inevitably end up forgetting. I will try to stick to factual items only and not anything personal, subjective, or based on fictional works.

I figure since Ive kinda always wanted to keep a diary or jump on the blog bandwagon, but my creativity level is in the negative, I can have something similar, but on a purely factual basis.
