FACT OF THE WEEK

GOOSEBUMPS

Our ancestors originally used goosebumps to ward off predators.


Their hair would stand on end making them look bigger than they actually were to help protect them.


Today, we have less hair and are intimidated by far less out there. But we still get goosebumps.

Hopefully, when we read a damn fine sentence. Or better yet, a damn fine story.
