TIL (today I learned)

TIL that wasabi you’re being served in restaurants is most likely is not actually wasabi, but is horseradish that is colored green. 95% of US sushi restaurants don’t actually serve wasabi due to the exorbitant price.

Thanks for sharing that! I am a fan of Dr. Seuss books. This work is like if someone had a Seuss nightmare. :joy: A very interesting mind he had!

do you remember the original show?

TIL Jonny Quest, which first aired from September 18, 1964, was an almost instant success, both critically and ratings-wise but it was canceled after one season due to the animated show’s high production costs.

I used to watch it. And the horribly animated, as I recall, Clutch Cargo. There’s a blast from the past! :crazy_face:
