I know I've been slacking this week. I'm super busy, I just started a new internship, on top of working a lot of hours at my moms coffee shop. But that's here nor there. So without further ado here are a couple of Mike's facts.
Treadmills were originally created as a torture device for prisoners.
In 1818, an English civil engineer by the name of Sir William Cubitt designed the first treadmill as a way to torture stubborn misbehaving convicts. The Treadmill was originally called the "Tread Wheel" as you can see why in the picture above. While the design quickly changed throughout history, the concept stayed the same. So when you're running on the treadmill and it feels like torture, just know its not really a coincidence.
Our last fact of the day, the late Kim Jong Il, former leader of North Korea, used to spend over 1 million dollars a year on Hennessy.
A bit ridiculous, if you ask me. But look it up, its totally real. Glad this douche bag is dead, considering his entire country is starving, while this skinny fat fuck is drinking himself to death with Hennessy. Hilarious, that Hennessy is his choice though. It's almost as if he thought it would give him street cred with black people or something. If you ask me, Hennessy is fucking nasty. He should be going with something more classy like Grey goose, Ace of Spades, Don Perignon, or keep it simple with Ciroc.
