things I learned over the past 24 hours

1. Thomas Jefferson was shy and loathed speaking publicly.

2. Great King Sejong's alphabet, the Hunminjeongeum (a.k.a., "Correct Sounds for the Edification of the People") originally consisted of 28 letters, not the modern 24.

3. Admiral Yi Sun-shin once defeated a Japanese fleet of 333 ships with only 13 of his own.

4. George Mason's writings were the inspiration for Thomas Jefferson's "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Things I'm going to learn soon: first and foremost, how to install a car's cabin and engine air filters. I'll be doing that this coming Friday.
