Did You Know Facts #1

Welcome to the first Did You Know Facts post. I have decided to make one of these for every month or two, so you won’t be seeing them too often. Basically, it is a bunch of facts that I have learned over the past until the time I publish the post. Without further ado, here they are.

Did You Know…

  • If you made a wall with the names of every single person who died in the Civil War written on it just like in the Vietnam War, it would ten times bigger than Vietnam War wall.

  • There is more germs on a laptop keyboard than there is in a toilet.
  • Horses and rats can’t vomit.

  • Why Watching TV is Useless

    “So, son, what have you been doing for the last few hours?”
    “Um… Watching TV…”
    “So you didn’t do homework?! Well, I supposed you at least learned something from this.”
    “Well… Not Exactly…”
    Wow! Watching TV sure is useless.

    First of all, TV wastes your time. What if you were flooded with homework and you needed every second of your time for studying. You decide to go downstairs to get a sip of water, but then you see the TV. The latest episode of The Simpsons is on. You decide to watch one episode and get back to your homework, but you end up watching for hours and you haven’t finished any of your work. You should probably watch after you finish your homework. As you can see, TV can use up your important time.

    Furthermore, TV uses up your time by ruining your eyes. After watching a consecutive amount of TV per day, your vision starts changing. One day you can see the goofy face of Homer Simpson, the next you just a yellow blur. At that point, you should schedule your meeting with the eye doctor immediately because you need glasses. This is the reason I have to wear these annoying spectacles that slip up and down my face and makes me near blind when taking them off. TV will most definitely give you the need of eye care.

    TV can be fun for most people, but is your idea of fun sitting in a chair all day with drool leaking out your mouth while your vision slowly starts to decay? I think not. Always try different activities in life, for it will you give you a fresh taste of the world around you. Hmm, what should I do next? I think I’ll read a book, or play fetch with my dog, or hang out with my friends. Oh well, it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s not watching TV…
