I love the Facebook Timehop (blank stare). Some days I look at my Timehop and wonder..."what was I thinking?" Sometimes I see things on it and think..."man, that was really cool."

This morning I opened it to a link I shared about a year ago. It was called "31 Things You Probably Didn't Know About The Quad Cities." by Cait White.

Some of the items on the list I already knew. Some completely blew my mind like the notorious lawyer-turned-gangster John Looney’s huge mansion in Rock Island still stands to this day on 17th Avenue, or you know those fun fuzzy dice you like to hang from your rearview mirror? While Iowa’s Quad Cities contingent can let them fly, they’re not allowed in Rock Island, Moline, and East Moline.

It's amazing what we can learn about our community. Give the article a read. Maybe you'll learn something you didn't know already. Is there anything you can add to the list?
