I work at a library so I open up books and read tons of random things. Today it was a medical textbook. Some interesting stuff:
The heart pumps blood through 70,000 miles worth of blood vessels... WHAT!?!?!
Reaction speed peaks at age 20 and begins declining at 26.
Hearing loss begins in the teenage years but is not noticeable.
Most people don't feel any significant affects of aging from age 30-45.
rate up for cool facts.
today I learned that there are "2,486 homeschooled students in British Columbia" and that "Provincial funding grants are sent to the registering school; no funding is sent to parents. The provincial funding grant amounts are as follows:
* Public schools receive $250 for each registered homeschooled child.
* An independent school authority holding a certificate of group 1 or group 2 classification receive $175 for each registered homeschooled child. Ministerial Order 383/03 (383/03)."
Yeah. Frigging boring. But I must do the bidding of people who ask me questions about things such as these. All I can say is thank god for the internet. Sometimes I wonder how people found out any of this random boring information before. Yeah, I know, books exist but did they actually make boring books about this stuff? In the past did public servants in the bureaucracy actually answer questions?
It is all a mystery to me.
