what did you learn today?

supposedly you learn something new every day. share your daily wisdom pit

today i learned that sodium azide, the chemical responsible for some airbags, is prepared using sodium metal, ammonia, and laughing gas. i thought this was interesting because both sodium metal and an intermediate in the reaction, sodium amide, are both extremely reactive with water.

Well I'm in the middle of learning this song so I can tab it (along with the whole EP) if it counts.

I learned that bread is bad for ducks. You should feed them halved grapes, cracked corn, birdseed, oats, barley, or pumpkin seeds instead.

This shampoo I've been using contains a lot of silicone and other shit that isn't organic or healthy and I'm going to have to switch to a clarifying shampoo to wash it out.

That in these last 12 years of force-fed, standardized, factory farmed styled american "education" that I have been a part of is pretty damn lame.

And no, it didn't take me that long to figure out, but it just hit me cause im graduating in like a week.

I learned that someone figured out a new method of halftone screening called Digitaly modulated halftone. It's suposed to be amazing, but i can barely find any info on it. Apparently its not very widely used. Yet.

Many things that I should have probably known months ago, given that my exam is in 9 hours.

i did a lot of research on this subject on the behalf of my sister in law. her salon was offering keratin treatments and the fumes were making her sick. turns out it was a simple case of listing formaldehyde in the ingredients by another name. she brought it up to the salon and they dismissed it so she moved elsewhere. i remember some of the silicones in there were questionable at heating iron temperatures, but what beef do you have with them in a regular shampoo? stuff like dimethicone is fairly inert if i remember correctly, which i might not.

he's probably just talking about the extra buildup it causes. they say dimethicone just artificially makes your hair look nicer by coating it, so you should clarify from time to time if your hair is feeling yucky

It just left build up in my hair which kind of made it look like it had gel or hairspray in it.

Since finding out that it was this shampoo causing my hair not to feel soft, I've checked out some of the 1-star reviews on Amazon. I guess the dimethicone can irritate people's skin and this shampoo contains some CEA ingredient that is a known carcinogen. I'm just more concerned with rinsing and rinsing and rinsing, but coming out of the shower with hair that doesn't feel healthy or clean.
