...Not the kind of wheel you fall asleep at...

Favorite fun fact I learned recently that has nothing to do with happiness or being in love--swear

Hippocrates believed that the uterus "wandered untethered through a woman's body, giving rise to any number of physical, mental, and moral failings... [and taking] a transcorporeal journey up to the breastbone, even to the throat, becoming particularly frantic when it wasn't fed on a regular basis with semen."*

What a fucking asshole.
