Did you know: Though you may think of that tiny pocket on your jeans as a coin pocket, it was originally designed to hold a pocket watch.

If you want to remember something, try thinking about it as meaningful pictures. Information is easier to remember if you couch it in some kind of story or mental image with personal meaning to you.

Source: That's just one tip among many from the book "Remember It!" by Nelson Dellis.

Just imagine: In the 1970s, the internet was so small that you could easily draw a map of it. Here's a map of the Internet in May 1973. Each point represents a government lab, university or private company that was connected.

This, in case you didn't know, is a photo of a dog doing what is called a "sploot," according to internet pet slang. Read on for more fun online animal words:

1. SPLOOT
You know your pet is fully relaxed when they’re doing a sploot. Like a split but for the whole body, a sploot occurs when a dog or cat stretches so their bellies are flat on the ground and their back legs are pointing behind them. The amusing pose may be a way for them to take advantage of the cool ground on a hot day, or just to feel a satisfying stretch in their hip flexors. Corgis are famous for the sploot, but any quadruped can do it if they’re flexible enough...
