    You really should read this =)
    That is brilliant! Thank you MD ^__^

    I only just learned after 33 years that you should brush your teeth before breakfast and not after.

    I always waited till after breakfast so I could have clean teeth for the day, but apparently that is really bad as it drives the sugars and acids from the meal into your teeth.

    I didn't know why, but yeah I always brush my teeth before breakfast. I think it's just easier as you don't have bits of food floating around your mouth, getting in your toothbrush. It's not like anything builds up on your teeth after eating some toast or cereal.

    I always run my toothbrush under the tap before and after putting toothpaste on. I find it helps quicken proceedings. This doesn't sit well with a lot of people I've mentioned it to, but try it first :)

    I've not really had change to learn anything today yet, but yesterday I learned how to use Adobe InDesign properly whilst also discovering at the same time what an absolutely hatefully thought out bit of software it is. There's literally no reason I can see why certain bits of functionality (something as simple as picking a colour, for example) can't be handled in the exact same way as in Photoshop. Even in terms of consistency throughout the Adobe Suite it makes more sense.

    The day before last I learned its unwise and ultimately a losing battle trying to keep your car clean and free of scratches and rattles because *something* will always damage your car beyond your control, be it fuckers in supermarket car parks, speed bumps destroying your bumpers, pot holes shaking things loose or loose grit being flung at your windscreen/bonnet.

    Yes I love the taste of minty porridge in the morning.

    Well, not straight afterwards. It's still much preferable to eating with unbrushed teeth and, even worse, brushing with the taste of cereal in your mouth.

    I brush before breakfast. Mouthwash after to get the bits of cereal out. #WINNING

    I do the water on the brush before and after as well...
    However I do brush after breakfast...But I drink water at breakfast so that should keep those acids at a minimum...

    This is why I never buy new cars or immaculate cars. It is just too stressfull. A good condition car with a minor scratch or two is perfect as I won't be driving around paranoid.

    I still love this fact.

    Although the amount of retweets of my tweet from people with dedicated Twitter accounts for Katy Perry fans was quite sad, whatever happened to real people on Twitter.

    Today I learned that the thresher shark actually jumps entirely out of the water, breaching like dolphins do. Also it looks quite graceful and nice.
    (Unlike the name suggests.)

    This morning I learned that to have your orange juice at optimal yummy flavourness, it's an idea to give the bottle a really good shake.

    Moments later, I also learned that it's a very good idea to make sure that the top is actually on the bottle before carrying out the shaking procedure.

    Use an electric shaver instead of a Bic.

    You shouldn't shave all the pubes off, just give it a good trim.

    And use talcum powder afterwards.

    I learnt last night that Duke Nukems "Here to kick as and all out of gum" line comes from the film They Live rather than the other way round (as someone showed me the trailer last night)

    Re:shaving. Beardtriming device is 1000X easier and dare I say safer than razor and far less painful.

    I tried it with hair clippers on zero, but caught a bit of loose scrote and it looked like I had been bitten by a midget headless horseman. I always use a bic now on the more 'sensitive' areas and make it the last thing I do before getting out the bath. I always shave in the bath (head, face and nuts) as I find the skin is at maximum suppleness and I get less razor burn. Also like to add, so you all can get a nice image in your heads, I prefer trimmed shrubbery (clipper friendly area), but completely shaved sack and any stray ones in the immediate area go also.

    Mathematics comes from bullshit?
    Therefore, mathematics depends on the production of bullshit.

    Conclusion:
    If we kill bulls, we can get rid of mathematics.

    What it's like to pick baby vomit from the gaps in floorboards with a skewer. Really wish I hadn't found out.

    How to be successful both in life and with the ladies.

    Except I learned that years ago. TIL: My dad "fries" onions in the fucking microwave.
