(through a Did You Know about The Vyne estate on Wiki's front page), and that it may have been Tolkien's inspiration for The One Ring.

TIL about Chief, the US Army's last living operational cavalry horse. He died in 1968 at 36. He was buried with full military honors, in an upright position, in Ft. Riley Kansas, at the base of the statue 'Old Trooper' (shown below).

I also learned that when actress Tilly Keeper auditioned for the role of 'Louise Mitchell' on East Enders, she thought she was trying out for a different part.

In learning that, I learned that Tilly's father's name is Peter. Peter Keeper. Snicker.

I guess the surname of Holder might have been worse.

Today I learned about the passionflower. Also called the blue passionflower, blue crown, flower of five wounds, "the Japanese call it the clock plant, due to it having 12 petals, a central stamen and stigmas resembling a time pieces's winding mechanism, and curly green tendrils resembling wound springs."

Today (literally, just a minute or two ago) I learned about the Devil's Hole pupfish, the world's rarest fish. No wonder. It's only found in a hole in (ok, near) Death Valley, one of the hottest, driest places on Earth.

Water level gauges. There is massive agricultural activity nearby and there have been numerous lawsuits and regulations regarding how much water the agriculture (in freakin Death Valley of all places) can pump out of the underground aquifer. So the National Park Service measures the water level so they know when the agriculture is pumping more water than they are supposed to be.

Don't get me starting with the fools in the desert Southwest pumping the water out of the ground faster than it can be replenished. Me, me, me, and screw the future generations.

It balances out, they pump out the water, the land subsides, the water is still the same distance down... until it runs out.
