  1. thanks for helping me procrastinate 🙂 but actually, those are really cool. of course, I started to try and find a word that rhymes with “month”…clearly I failed. Fun fact: there are ~572 peanuts in a jar of peanut butter. happy friday!

  2. Wow so many random facts! I love this. I had no idea that Mohammed was the world’s more common name….or that nothing in English rhymes with month. I guess you learn something new every day!
