It doesn't matter how old you are, you can always learn something new. For example, did you know loofah (or luffa) sponges aren't made out of sponge?

Those sponges that you can use in the shower, or even to clean dishes - not a 'sponge.'

Yep. I'm not going to lie to you - I was shocked, shocked I tell you.

It all started with a post on Twitter:

It turns out, loofah sponges - aside from being spelled LUFFA - come from a plant. Turns out, they're from a cucumber in the gourd family. You can actually get seeds online, and grow your own sponges. Seriously.

For my whole 47 years, I never knew this. Maybe you did, and if so, you go! If not, well - there you go.
