Today I learned something.

Well, three somethings, really. The first was the exact position of various negative particles in English sentences over the last 1200 years, at least according to one theory. Exciting.

The second was how to make a chair by lashing sticks together. The internet had such intriguing pictures. How could I resist?

The third? How to identify stinging nettles in the wild. Protip: You can’t see the thorns. They’re a secret.

Only two of these came from secondhand sources. Which, I suppose, leads me to thing 4: how to treat nettle rash.

Happy weekend!
