^Hopefully Putin will do the right thing and you'll feel less sick.


What I learned today: that lettuce can cause cancer.


Edit: fixed

^^^ Radiation poisoning will not only make me sicker than I've ever been in my whole life, but it will very likely horribly kill me. And I'm sure it's a lot more cancerous than lettuce, which is hilarious because it's ironically the ultimate "diet" food. Well, you'll very likely lose a lot of weight from chemotherapy, at least.

I haven't seen my family in almost 20 years. Today I learned they'll drive this far, in the snow, to see a football game. I still won't see them, but they're here. To see a football game.

that there are some doctors/scientists that claim that even the best quality olive oil is outright unhealthy and should be avoided

Some driver in Montreal did a hit and run at a baby stroller being pushed by the mother across the street. It looks like they did it on purpose because they sped up suddenly before hitting the carriage.
The baby survived without injuries, but I think maybe the driver was so sickened by the fact there are over 8 biliion humans in the world they just lost it and decided to just start murdering babies. Who knows? Of course they might have been aiming for the mother but hit the stroller instead. The police are still investigating this incident.

that USA people pronounce the word solder "wrongly". Or maybe it's the Brits that pronounce it wrongly? Not sure about Canadians because Canadian English is considered as a dialect of USA English and people never say anything about Canadian English.

That some people think Disney is "is no longer hiding its true nature" by showing "I love Satan" in a scene in their recent The Santa Clauses series, based off The Santa Clause movies. Obviously, the scene is just a joke that the Moral Guardians took out of context. The elves had meant to spell "I love Santa" but accidentally misspell it as "Satan". When Santa himself points out the spelling, the elves shriek and quickly fix it to spell "Santa".

People can say what they want about Disney, but I really don't believe it's Satanic. Like supposedly the numbers 666 can be found in its logo. Along with about a hundred other words, phrases, numbers and acronyms.

that there's a world cup or whatever happening in some barbaric country where people get arrested for being gay... Maybe Putin should drop its magic there now.

Doctors do not necessarily do what’s in the patients best interest, but rather what is best for their own self interest.
Your life and death is only supported to what’s best for the doctors bottom line.

That 2023 is the Year Of The Rabbit according to the Chinese Zodiac. I found out when I noticed they had red shopping bags with rabbits on them at Walmart.

My dad's sign was the rabbit. He didn't like it because he would hunt rabbits in the winter.
