Mind blown

New facts that blow your mind

The tab on teabag strings is so you can stand your cup on it and it doesn’t get dragged in when you pour the water in.

I know this is probably fucking obvious to 99% of you but the amount of times I’ve fished out a soggy teabag tag…

I never realised it was so you could do that. I’ve seen people tie the string round the cup, but that always looks really fiddly to me.

This one blew my mind the other day.

In 1859, a British farmer called Thomas Austin brought 24 rabbits with him to his new home in Australia. Within six years, the country’s rabbit population had swelled to 22 million.

They introduced 100 cane toads to keep the crops in order about 100 years ago and now they’ve got 200 million. Oops.

But that’s ok because they can just introduce thousands of French people to eat the frogs

As with Covid R-number stuff, it seems like we (simple human dum-dums) find it really difficult to get a concrete sense of what exponential growth actually means.

EDIT: that tea trick is wicked. just tried it :slight_smile: I usually wrap the string around the cup handle but the label tuck thing is better.

Kind of like the Australian thing… but for the most stupid reason ever…

Yeah I wrap the string around the handle too.

Something I heard recently, the hole in a spaghetti spoon is the diameter of a single portion I think

I just go by girth relative to that of my erect penis.
ie. 1 boner = 1/8th portion

I thought you were supposed to pour water first and then put your tea bag in it?

40% of under 30 year olds in a psychology research project said that if the choice was between their smartphone being smashed in an accident and breaking a bone in their hand, they’d go for the hand.

GTFOH
