Random Fact #21

Random Fact #21: You can clean a shower curtain with a toothbrush.

I wouldn't recommend it if you have a bigger cleaning apparatus or if you can just buy a new shower curtain, but don't let anyone tell you it can't be done. They're fools.

Source: I've done it.

Yeah, that's right. I just cleaned my shower curtain with a toothbrush and a bottle of Soft Scrub With Bleach. Step aside, Hemingway. There's a new badass writer in town.

(But really, have you heard the story about how Hemingway went out in a rowboat during World War II and shot a U-boat with a handgun? The little bit of research I've done indicates that he never actually attacked a U-boat, but the man actually did patrol for them in a wooden boat, and he had firearms on hand. Considering the "manly man" characters that Hemingway often writes, this shouldn't surprise me. And yet...

Terry Mort wrote a book about Hemingway's U-boat hunting called The Hemingway Patrols: Ernest Hemingway and His Hunt for U-Boats. Google Books has a pretty hefty preview if you're interested. I might have to check it out sometime, because the thought of Hemingway hunting U-boats never fails to amuse me.)
