Learn Something Everyday

brain-80-water

Learn Something Everyday é um projecto divertido da empresa Young Design que começou no inicio deste mês e onde todos os dias é publicado um desenho minimalista com um facto menos conhecido. De forma a contribuir é possível enviar factos de forma a que estes sejam associados a uma imagem, feita por eles, sendo esta posteriormente publicada.

De forma a colaborar enviei a letra de uma música do Lazyboy intitulada de Facts of Life. Esta música contém diversas curiosidades engraçadas que penso que podem ser interessantes no âmbito deste projecto. A letra da música segue mais abaixo. Contribui tu também com alguns factos curiosos que conheças.

É possível acompanhar este projecto através da sua feed.
