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.

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:
