This is false, he joined survivor after eye of the tiger was released wich was sung by their previous lead singer, I'm sure he sung it live somewhere obviously but he's not the original singer everyone recognizes from that song.
Today I learned that Joe can fuck off. :bart

Today I saw a sticker in Braille. It was a 3x3 inch sticker marking the bathroom. It had no tactile features, as in it was an ordinary flat and smooth sticker with a dark blue background and WC in white followed by "Restroom" in Braille.

So I learned that human stupidity can still astound me

This is inside of the men’s toilets at The Prince Of Wales Hotel. Bunbury, Western Australia.
I had to phone security to come and get me out.

Today I learned that in 1999 when the Cartoon Network bought the rights to air Warner Brothers cartoons, for three years they didn't air any Speedy Gonzales cartoons because he's a culturally insensitive racist stereotype.

But it turns out that Mexicans fucking love them some Speedy Gonzales, and a Hispanic-American civil rights group launched a letter writing campaign until they got him back. :lol:

"Feeling that the character presented an offensive Mexican stereotype, Cartoon Network shelved Speedy's films when it gained exclusive rights to broadcast them in 1999 (as a subsidiary of Time Warner, Cartoon Network is a corporate sibling to Warner Bros.). In an interview with Fox Newson March 28, 2002, Cartoon Network spokeswoman Laurie Goldberg commented, "It hasn't been on the air for years because of its ethnic stereotypes."[4]

Despite such controversy over potentially offensive characterizations, Speedy Gonzales remained a popular character in Latin America.[4] The Hispanic-American rights organization League of United Latin American Citizens called Speedy a cultural icon, and thousands of users registered their support of the character on the hispaniconline.com message boards. Fan campaigns to put Speedy back on the air resulted in the return of the animated shorts to Cartoon Network in 2002.[5]"

:lol:

This is fucking brilliant, and it is so relevant to today's utter bullshit about cultural appropriation and microaggressions. If you were to go and ask students at Berkeley what they thought of the character, I am sure it would be a racist trope that showed white supremacy.

Today I learned that even if you grew up your whole life drinking milk, once you quit for a few years and decide to drink an ice cold carton of delicious whole milk you'll get the extreme squishy shits shortly after. Like real, real squishy and sour funky.

I learned that I can't find hotel rooms for shit. I am just looking for hotels that have jacuzzi tubs in the room, in Richmond Virginia. Out of the million that pop up with that description, I have only found 1 for sure that has that feature. The rest just count it as meaning....a hot tub somewhere in the fucking hotel.
There are so many sites that make it easy to book a hotel. I want one goddamn thing, in my own fucking city and the internet is failing me.

TIL how vast the ocean of whores on instagram is, i mean as much as i enjoy looking at some wannabe models snatch
It really is a platform for narcissistic whores (male and female) to indulge themselves under the guise of living a fitness lifestyle.
