TIL That during the WW2 the British government brought up the surplus tea from every nation except Japan, making it the second largest purchase (by weight) after bullets. Then artillery shells, bombs and explosives. They thought there would be significant damage to the countries morale if it ran out.

TIL that the UKIP leader Dick Braine is standing down. I know it's immature but that name cracks me up. What parent would do that to their child?

And the US democratic party has a strategist called Krystal Ball :eveywtf:

TIL there is no limit to how much I can eat at KBBQ. Not to say that there isn't a limit to how much I may TAKE from the buffet, but that my stomach is a black hole, devouring all forms of Wagyu beef and spicy teriyaki pork that dares approach.
