Life's little pleasures...

My current simple pleasure is opening a bottle of snapple, and getting a fact you havent seen before. i always smirk and nod, thinking "Good to know..." Today's was that dragonflies cannot walk despite having 6 legs. they just use that shit to land. huh.... Do any of you have some interesting little factoids that can make us all just a little bit more pretentious at parties?

  1. That dragonfly factoid just blew my brains... that's got to be some evolutionary mistake haha Poor things, they must be pretty jealous when they see every other insect just strutting their stuff around.

  14. You can be pretentious at parties without saying a word, just make sure you don't talk to anybody and maintain the 'I'm better than you' stance.
