    If you never heard of digg.com I highly recommend for web surfing and learning about lots of really cool random things.

    TIL about a professional cuddler (Yeah, I know, weird, right?)


    And about the Sanskebetsu bear incident that happened in 1915 in Japan. Basically, a bear went on a horrific slaughter spree over the course of 3 or 4 days and killed 7 people. Sounds like something straight from a horror movie. I didn't even know Japan has a sub species of brown bear.

    I’m starting to think you spend a little too much time on YouTube and reddit.

    This isn't a TIL but it's a TIR (today I remembered) something a group of us early elementary school kids were told. We were told that if someone was trying to rape, molest or abduct us to yell "FIRE!" because that would get people's attention and make them want to help. If we were to yell "RAPE!" people might not want to get involved. This was absolutely something that was told to a group of kids (7-9) in the good old 80s.
