Every Day is a Chance to Learn Something New #1

Things I learned today:

1.) Timbuktu was actually an ancient pilgrimage site for scholars. Asia had Alexandria; Africa had Timbuktu. 
2.) A traditional Chinese malaria cure is now being used to treat malaria today.  There might be other cures out there we’ve forgotten; the only way is to test the claims and see if it works. 
3.) Speaking of China: they now have a factory for cloning pigs.  
4.) And there’s a DIY online on cocaine manufacturing.  (No – don’t try this at home.)
