Today We Learned About Black Death



You learn something new on the internet every day. Usually it's about cats, which is perfectly fine with us.

If at all possible, some click-whoring outfit will combine cats, "Good Day," and Ron Swanson, and all our intellectual demands will be satisfied in one easy-to-read page and we can get on with the rest of our super important daily activities, like eating an entire pizza for lunch.

Today was no different. Today, we learned about Black Death.


That band is real, and as It's Metal points out, their name was Black Death and they hailed from Cleveland.

Shame on us for not knowing this vital information sooner.
