Who says that learning has to stop when you’re not in school? In fact, there are all sorts of interesting facts that you would probably never learn in the classroom. Luckily, the Internet is here to help. We’ve gathered fascinating TIL (today I learned) facts that people have shared on Reddit. Ranging from history to science to entertainment to technology, these entries are full of stuff that, personally, I never knew before. I bet you will learn a few new things, too. So get comfortable and prepare to learn something that you never knew before. These historical tidbits might come in handy if you ever decide to participate in a game show!
#1: A Mother’s Love
We are starting this list off right with a heartwarming story all the way from the nation of Turkey, or Türkiye, as they now prefer to be called. Law school would be hard enough under the best of circumstances, but can you imagine trying to do law school blind, especially if (as it appears in this story) there weren’t a lot of concessions made for your condition?
That is the situation that one law school student found herself in, But luckily she had someone incredible on her side: her mother, who read her the lecture notes for four years until the daughter graduated from law school. In recognition of the incredible active service this mother did, she was also awarded an honorary degree. This is adorable, and also well deserved; after reading all of those notes, I bet the mom was pretty much a legal expert!
