Everyday Thoughts

Part of starting this blog was influenced by the fact that I am a very inquisitive person. I strive to learn something new everyday. Even if it’s just something silly and pointless.

Today I learned that Cher has been Cher’s full legal name since 1979, that Madonna’s maiden name is Ciccone, and that Prince was named after his father whose stage name was Prince.  This spawned from learning that Lindsay Lohan is suing E*Trade. Lindsay said that a baby in the commercial E*Trade aired during the Superbowl was her. Her reasoning? She believes her name “Lindsay” is as famous as Oprah being Oprah, or Cher being Cher. You get the point. I think that is funny and really hope she doesn’t get any money.

Stuff You Should Know is one of my favorite podcasts. Though I made the mistake last week of learning how scabies worked. I itched all day. Scabies and Chiggers I can do without.

It’s a ginormous world out there, so much to learn, so much to take in.

This is why I love the quotes,

“To know that we know what we know, and that we do not know what we do not know, that is true knowledge.”– Henry David Thoreau

and

“There is much pleasure to be gained from useless knowledge.”– Bertrand Russell.

So what did you learn today?
