Today I Learned…

…that a 747 can fly upside down.

However, it can only do so if it starts that way — the shear involved in doing a barrel roll in flight would rip the wings off.  If it were to start out upside down, it would do just fine.

Today I Learned…

…what all the fuss was about over Watchmen.  Go get it and read it.  Right now.  I am so psyched for the movie next year. I kind of want to get a hydrogen atom tattoo like Doc Manhattan.  Not on my forehead, mind you.  But that would be cool

…also, in a few minutes, I’ll have learned what Hillary Clinton’s DNC speech was about/like.  *apprehensive*
