A random fact you recently got to know Started by: Protea on Apr 13, '21 10:49

I recently watched a programme about Migraines and discovered for chronic cases they can give the person botox injections.  There was one women that had to had around 20-30 injections in her forehead and wasn't particularly keen on needles but apparently it blocks the pain signals to the brain so felt it was worth a shot.  I'm glad I suffer from only one or two a year!

I found out today that the term Top Dog and Underdog come from old day Sawyers. They used to dig a trench, roll a log over the trench, then one would stand on top of the log (top dog) and the other under the log in the trench (underdog) and together they would saw the log into planks to build ships and houses.

Recently watched a YT video on the comparisons between radial flux motors and axial flux motors for electric vehicles. Stuff is pretty high-level but interesting to learn about.

Whilst randomly reading Wikipedia, I got into undersea cables - a really cool read all in all, but I found this bit to be hilarious:

In March 2007, pirates stole an 11-kilometre (7 mi) section of the T-V-H submarine cable that connected ThailandVietnam, and Hong Kong, afflicting Vietnam's Internet users with far slower speeds. The thieves attempted to sell the 100 tons of cable as scrap.

Imagine being a pirate and having the balls to just chop 100 tons of cable off of an international undersea cable and try to sell it off as scrap lol.
