    Please be kind. Like actually kind though.

    I wanted to post a thread where people could talk about things that they were surprised to learn exists or existed, or just discovered and wanted to share for whatever reason.

    Have y'all ever heard of Giant Spider Crabs? These things are terrifying!
    Seriously, look at that thing. Just one of those things looks like it could rip you apart and devour you for sweet, sweet sustenance. And you know what else? They horde.

    These squid things are insane. They're like 25-30ft long and they've never even found an adult.

    Today I present to you: The Library of Babel!
    Library of Babel
    From the website's about page:
    The Library of Babel is a place for scholars to do research, for artists and writers to seek inspiration, for anyone with curiosity or a sense of humor to reflect on the weirdness of existence - in short, it’s just like any other library. If completed, it would contain every possible combination of 1,312,000 characters, including lower case letters, space, comma, and period. Thus, it would contain every book that ever has been written, and every book that ever could be - including every play, every song, every scientific paper, every legal decision, every constitution, every piece of scripture, and so on. At present it contains all possible pages of 3200 characters, about 104677 books.

    Since I imagine the question will present itself in some visitors’ minds (a certain amount of distrust of the virtual is inevitable) I’ll head off any doubts: any text you find in any location of the library will be in the same place in perpetuity. We do not simply generate and store books as they are requested - in fact, the storage demands would make that impossible. Every possible permutation of letters is accessible at this very moment in one of the library's books, only awaiting its discovery. We encourage those who find strange concatenations among the variations of letters to write about their discoveries in the forum, so future generations may benefit from their research.

    Vsauce video where they touch on the website (I have it embed to start at the part where they talk about the library but i recommend watching the whole thing if you have time)

    I find this extremely interesting.
