Mind F*#k

I learned a lot today...

No I didn't open a book or do any research..., or sit in a classroom......., or watch the history channel. NO!

I went on Facebook..

I learned
that Montenegro and Japan had technically been at war with each other from 1904 to 2006. Apparently Montenegro's involvement in the war was so minute that it was overlooked until they realized in 2006 that the two were still technically at war and promptly signed a peace treaty.

I learned
That the time difference between when Tyrannosaurus and Stegosaurus lived is greater than the time difference between Tyrannosaurus and now. It kind of ruins my childhood.

I learned
that Mississippi didn't ratify the 13th amendment (Prohibition of slavery) until 1995, only 16 years ago.

Some fun facts, read up. A friend of mine sent me the link.
