When it comes to cooking and baking, it’s imperative to know how much a teaspoon and a tablespoon can measure. They’re typically units of volume used for smaller (but incredibly important) spices, extracts, and oils in all of our favorite recipes and dishes. They also help because using a scale to weigh these would be pretty messy, and using a measuring cup can be inaccurate and involves extra cleaning, too. Teaspoons and tablespoons and cups are used in both the imperial and metric systems.…

From the time we were little kids, we were taught basic geography. And in the United States of America, we’re taught all about the 50 states right from the get-go! As adults, we’re sometimes quizzed to see if we can remember them, hell, some people can even sing a song to list off all of the 50 states in a pleasurable rhythm that soothes our ears (or hurts them). For whatever reason you want to list off the states, we sorted them into several different versions, including by alphabet, by the letter they start with, and even what capital cities belong in each state.…
During my last visit home to Canada about a year ago, I noticed a new interesting trend at the time. There were a series of boutique shops that only sold eco-friendly bamboo clothing.
“Bamboo clothes? What?”
I thought surely this first store was a one-off thing. But then I searched Google Maps and saw several other similar stores around the region.
I had never heard of bamboo being made into clothes, nor did I ever have a notion that it was even possible.…
“Luke, I am your father.” — Not an actual quote from Star Wars
He actually said, “No, I am your father.” in the movie. Don’t believe me? Watch for yourself:
That’s crazy, right?
I didn’t believe it myself at first, but here we are. And here’s a page full of 51 other weird Mandela Effects!What is the definition of Mandela Effect?
These groupthink mistaken memories are a result of something colloquially called the Mandela Effect.
In medical terms, it’s called a false memory.…
“We need men with moral courage to speak and write their real thoughts, and to stand by their convictions, even to the very death.” — Robert Green Ingersoll
I wonder how literally Robert actually took those words.
Would he have sacrificed his life to follow his own convictions? He died of heart failure himself, so perhaps he didn’t get the chance.
But other famous figures did — and their wish was granted. Although sometimes inadvertently.
Here are five crazy ways historical figures died after sticking to their principles and desires.…
The last words a person ever shouts out into the void of our universe is given a special place in our society. They mark an ending of something. That someone existed, and no longer exists, and is therefore unable to ever utter another sound.
It’s a simple premise yet we often ascribe profound meaning to the last words someone is able to speak.
And as a collective society we raise certain individuals up upon our shoulders in reverence, their last words seem to be even more special, somehow.…

“Twist a tongue, and tongue a twist how many twists can a tongue twister twist around the twisting tongue.”― Jazz Feylynn
Who doesn’t remember having a favorite tongue twister as a kid? For me, it was the “how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.”
Even to this day I can say it at a breakneck pace, much to the amusement of anyone around me at the time.
But one thing I never realized as a child was the importance of tongue twisters.…
