"TIL Mount Everest is so inundated with waste, including 26,500 lbs of human excrement, each season that the Nepalese gov't now requires each climber to pack out 8 kg of waste when descending the mountain (human waste, empty cans/bottles, abandoned tents, etc.)."

"TIL MIT has genetically modified trees to glow in the dark in the hopes of creating a literally green source of light for the future."

The roughly 75 star-studded attendees (including the likes of Tom Hanks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Carl Reiner) said that he had invited them to his house just for a "party." To their shock, upon their arrival his wedding began."
