While we've often heard that we learn something new every day, it's sometimes easy to forget how we picked up on that knowledge.
For instance, although I was taught about the Civil Rights Movement in high school and learned in detail about the death of Emmett Till during those lessons, I had already found out about who he was after listening to Kanye West's "Through The Wire" about a year earlier.
I suppose that when someone makes an off-hand reference to an event, it only makes us more curious to know what they're talking about.
But that's far from the only surprising way the world can pique our curiosity and encourage us to learn new things. Some odd photos are just strange enough to make sure we never forget our new information...even if we want to.
