The Tallest Structures Throughout History
14:16

Standing next to an extremely tall structure can be an exhilarating experience. Something which was no less exhilarating to early humans.

Ever since humans created the first pile of rocks, we have been trying to build ever-larger piles of rocks. These piles of rocks eventually evolved into structures hundreds of meters tall. 

Learn more about the structures which have held the title of the tallest in the world, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Thirty Mile Zone
08:23

Hollywood is known the world over for being the center of the motion picture industry. 

But did you ever wonder why the movie business is centered there or why it hasn’t moved somewhere else?

Well, it all has to do with a clause in various union contracts.

The Halifax Explosion
10:40

On December 6, 1917, one of the greatest tragedies of World War I took place. 

In a single instant, 1,782 people, mostly civilians were killed. 

However, this tragedy didn’t take place on the fields of Belgium or in a trench in France. It took place in the harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The World's Oldest Restaurant
07:03

Running a restaurant is a very difficult business. Most restaurants barely make a profit, and it isn’t unheard of for a series of restaurants to shuffle through the same building as one goes out of business after the other.

Longevity in the restaurant game is very difficult. Even if you manage to make your restaurant a success, you aren’t guaranteed that your children will want to take over the business. 

There is one restaurant, however, which has managed to stay in business for almost 300 years.

Learn more about Sobrino de Botín, the world’s oldest restaurant, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Lingua Latina
13:25

“E Pluribus Unum”, “Habeus Corpus”, “Carpe Diem”, “Caveat Emptor”.

 

All of these phrases are known by most people, yet they come from a language that has been dead for 1500 years: Latin.

 

Latin is on our money, serves as mottos for universities, and is the

foundation for our entire naming system in biology. Many concepts from law and logic are all described by Latin phrases. 

 

Learn more about Lingua Latina, the Latin Language, and how it is still used in our world today on this episode of Totum Ubique Cotidie.

Who Was the 5th Beatle?
10:29

In 1964, New York City disc jockey “Murry the K” humorously dubbed himself the fifth Beatle due to his early promotion of the Beatles on his radio program.

Since then, almost two dozen other people have been dubbed the 5th Beatle due to their contributions to the band. 

Some people dubbed the 5th Beatle was even given the moniker by members of the band themselves.

Learn more about the people who have been dubbed the 5th Beatle, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Dodo Bird
09:59

In 1598 the Dutch Empire acquired the island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

There they found a short, fat, flightless bird that was only found on that island. The bird had absolutely no fear of humans, but perhaps it should have.

In 1662, just 64 years later, the last known bird was sighted, and after that, the entire species went extinct.

Learn more about the dodo bird and how it disappeared on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Alcohol in Early America
11:01

In the very days of the United States, the country was mostly made up of farmers. 

They primarily ate the food which they grew, and maybe hunted to supplement their diet. 

They also drank. Alcohol. A lot of alcohol. In fact, the amount of alcohol consumed by early Americans on average might have been more than any other people in human history. 

Learn more about the alcohol consumption habits of early Americans on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Elizabeth Swaney: The Power of Just Showing Up
08:30

Elizabeth Swaney was born in 1984 in Oakland, California. She attended the University of California Berkley where her only athletic accomplishment consisted of serving as the coxswain of the men’s rowing team. 

Elizabeth, however, desperately wanted to be an olympian. The only thing standing in her way was a complete lack of athletic ability. 

Her lack of athletic ability didn’t stop her, and in 2018, she managed to achieve her goal of competing in the Olympics.

Ancient Colors
09:52

When people from prehistory created the first works of art on the walls of caves, they used the colors that they found around them. Almost all of the early cave art is drawn in black or dark red. 

As time progressed, humans figured out how to create more colors and they began using them in more and different ways.


However, some colors were very difficult to create and those who could do it became fabulously rich.

The Non-Spanish Languages of Spain
09:54

Most people think of languages and countries usually coincide. Germans speak German, the French speak French, and the Spanish speak Spanish.

While this is largely true, it isn’t totally true. There are a host of small, regional languages which are only spoken by a few people. These languages are often ignored because they aren’t associated with a country. 

This is especially true in the country of Spain.

Learn more about the languages in Spain which are not Spanish on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Charles Cunningham Boycott
09:09

Charles Cunningham Boycott was not a well-liked person amongst his neighbors in Ireland. No one would talk to him, no one would sell to him, and no one would work for him.

He was so disliked that his very name became synonymous with refusing to do business with someone.

Wrestlemania
10:04

Every year, around this time, one of the largest entertainment events is held. Wrestlemania.

 

However, this isn’t just a wrestling show. How it came about is a story of business consolidation, modern media, and celebrity culture. 

Even if you aren’t a fan of professional wrestling, the story behind the business of Wrestlemania is fascinating.

The Assassination of James A. Garfield
13:14

At 9:30 am on July 2, 1881, at the Baltimore and Potomac Railroad Station in Washington, D.C., James Garfield, President of the United States was fatally shot. 

It is an event that, quite frankly, doesn’t really get the attention that other political assassinations have received. The story behind how and why it happened is as fascinating as any in American History.

Why Does Vatican City Exist?
12:06

Located in the middle of Rome, the capital of Italy, is what many people consider to be the smallest country in the world: Vatican City. 

However, Vatican City isn’t like other countries. 

At all. 

It is different in almost every respect to any other country, so much so, that it is reasonable to ask why the country even exists.

Learn more about Vatican City, and why it is even a thing, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

However, one of the greatest achievements is one that didn’t leave any physical monuments. Its legacy is the people who live on the remote islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Al Andalus

However, most of the Iberian peninsula for almost 800 years was under Muslim control. The legacy of the Moorish occupation can still be seen in the names of places and some of Spain’s most historic buildings.

Why Did Hitler Declare War on The United States?
09:42

On December 11, 1941, Nazi Germany declared war on the United States. 

The interesting thing about this decision is that they didn’t have to do it. In fact, it would have been far better had they not done it. 

This decision has been one of the biggest mysteries of World War II.

In northern Greece, lying off the larger Chalkidiki peninsula is a place that is unique on planet Earth. 

It only has a population of about 2,400 people scattered across 20 settlements and some random people living by themselves.  

What makes this area unique is that all 2,400 of its citizens are monks and all are men….and women are not allowed to even enter.

Fast-forward to today, and people from 140 countries are listening to a podcast in a dialect we call American English. 

How did nordic invaders lead to a language which is now spoken on all seven continents?

There is an old adage about warfare that says “amateurs talk about strategy, whereas professionals talk about logistics”. 

There is a great deal of truth to this statement. 

While history books have given a great deal of attention to the D-Day landing at Normandy, what has been almost totally ignored is the incredible logistical effort which was required after the landing.

Fantasy Nobel Prizes: Isaac Newton
10:18

Isaac Newton is one of the most important scientists in the history of the world. His discoveries have impacted almost every aspect of physics, and a huge part of the first two semesters of any physics course is dominated by his discoveries.

It raises an interesting question: If Nobel Prizes were given out when Newton was alive, how many would he have won?

The 7 People Who Control the Internet
07:39

The internet is often considered to be an open environment where no one really controls anything. A company or a person might have control over a particular website but in the big scheme of things you can set up whatever websites you want without anyone’s permission. 

This is mostly true, but not totally true. If you keep going up the chain of control on the internet, you will eventually reach the top, where there sit people who hold seven keys. Those keyholders are ultimately the ones who control the internet.

The Problem With Track & Field World Records
10:08

One of the unique things about track and field is that you don’t just compete against your immediate competitors, but you are also competing against the clock or the tape measure. 


That means you can compare achievements with people in the past, and that means world records.

You would expect world records to fall over time, but there are a small number of records that haven’t been broken in decades and no one has even come close to breaking them.

Learn more about track and field’s unbreakable world records and why this might be a problem, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Did Shakespeare Write the Works of Shakespeare?
10:46

William Shakespeare is widely considered one of the greatest poets and playwrights in the history of the English language. 

However, over the last two centuries many people have begun to wonder if William Shakespeare of Stratford-on-Avon, England was indeed the person who wrote the works which have been attributed to him. 

If you look at the evidence or the lack thereof, they aren’t necessarily crazy for thinking it.

Learn more about if William Shakespeare did in fact write the works of Shakespeare on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Rome: Republic vs Empire
12:10

I’ve done several episodes pertaining to Ancient Rome. The reason is that so many of the foundational things in our world, from our alphabet to our calendar, to the names of our months, all can be traced back to Rome.

During these episodes, I’ve often talked about the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. 

However, many people might not realize what the difference is between the two. When did the republic become an empire, and why?

Understanding Orchestras

Even if you aren’t a fan of classical music, you are probably at least familiar with what an orchestra is. 

But have you ever wondered why orchestras use the instruments they do? Or why they have them in that combination, or why it is even called an orchestra at all? 

And what exactly is a symphony or a philharmonic?

The B-52 Stratofortress
08:39

World War II was the first major conflict that saw the use of strategic bombers. In the months immediately after the war, the US saw the need for an advanced bomber to replace the bombers which were developed during the war. Moreover, they wanted something bigger, faster, and that used newly developed jet engines. 

The end result of the process was the B-52 bomber which had its first flight in 1952.

The Yellow Fleet
07:06

In 1967, war broke out between Israel and Egypt. It was the beginning of what would be known as the Six-Day War.

As Israeli forces raced across the Siani Peninsula, Egyptian forces took measures to ensure that the Suez Canal wouldn’t be captured. They scuttled ships on either end of the canal to prevent it from being used.

Unfortunately, there were ships still in the canal and they got stuck…..for a long time.

Unratified Constitutional Amendments

The United States Constitution spells out a very specific process for how to amend the document.

First, Congress must vote to approve the amendment. Then the amendment is sent to the state legislatures for ratification. 


Most amendments never make it through congress. But what happens when an amendment makes it through congress but then doesn’t get approved by the states?

However, they all pale in comparison to the annual lottery which takes place in Spain every year. The total amount of money given away in this lottery is over double the cash prize given out in the biggest American lottery.

This is a truth, but it really isn’t the truth. At best it could be described as the beginning of the end of the Civil War.

This episode is not about that theory, however. 

This is about his OTHER theory that he developed from that expedition.

Copyright is what protects creators from having someone copy and make money off of their work without compensation.

Such creators of maps and directories have found unique ways around this problem.

The London Beer Flood
06:48

Early 19th century London was a dangerous, dirty, dingy place with tons of poverty and a lot of drinking. 

Alcoholism was common and excessive drinking, especially amongst lower-income people in London, was the norm, not the exception. 

All of that alcohol had to be produced, which meant lots of breweries and lots of beer.

All of these trends came crashing home on the day of October 17, 1814, in one horrific disaster.

Base Units of Measurement
10:08

Yet, why do we measure everything the way we do? Why is a second, a second, and why is a meter, a meter? 

Learn more about why our units of measurement are the way they are on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Mitochondrial Eve
09:07

On January 1, 1987, a paper was published in the journal Nature which rocked the world of anthropology. 

Researchers Allan Wilson, Mark Stoneking, and Rebecca Cann used the then-new science of genetic analysis to analyze the DNA in human mitochondria. 

What they found was evidence that humans on Earth can trace their ancestry back to a single woman who lived approximately 180,000 years ago.

The Elevator

Why Doesn't the US Use the Metric System? (Encore)

Of the 193 countries in the United Nations, exactly three haven’t adopted the widespread use of the metric system: Myanmar, Liberia, and the United States of America.


Of those three, the US is the country that really stands out. It has the biggest economy in the world, does an incredible amount of international trade, has immigrants from every country in the world, and is even the home to the United Nations.

If there was one country on paper that should be using the metric system, it is the United States.

Yet, we don’t.

Decimation
07:55

You are probably familiar with the term decimation. The word is usually used in English to mean “to cause great destruction or harm”.

It was one of the most devastating and brutal forms of punishment that the military could inflict.

He eventually topped out at 7 feet, four inches tall, weighed 520 pounds, and became a worldwide phenomenon as a professional wrestler and actor.

How small can a country be and still be a country? 

 

In theory, there is no lower limit on the number of people to be a sovereign state. However, in reality, there are costs associated with being an independent country. The fewer the number of people, the higher the cost for everyone in the country.

There is one country that has managed to remain an independent republic for over 50 years with a population of only about 10,000 people.

QWERTY

After years of tinkering and adjusting, he finally came up with an arrangement of the keys that worked. The letters on the left side of the top row were Q-W-E-R-T-Y.

We have basically been using the same keyboard ever since.

Cosmos 954

According to the old adage, what goes up must come down. Unless you are talking about a satellite, which can go up and never come down.

However, sometimes satellites do come down. When they are not expected to. Where they are not wanted. 

Such was the case in 1978 with a Soviet spy satellite that spread its debris, its nuclear debris, all over northern Canada.

Milankovitch Cycles
08:40

The Earth takes a year to go around the sun, and a day to turn on its axis. 

It is tilted 23.5 degrees which is what causes the seasons. 

All of these facts which you learned in school are true, but they are not permanent. They change, very slowly, over time. 

One astrophysicist in the 1920s figured out that all of these cycles could interact with each other, affecting the long term climate of the Earth.

The Year of The Five Emperors
08:53

Every so often, the series Dr. Who would have a special episode where multiple versions of the time-traveling Doctor would appear on the same episode. 

I think they probably ripped the idea off from the Roman empire, where they had several years with multiple emperors. 

So, fresh off talking about the year of four emperors, we might as well go straight into the year it was even worse. 

Learn more about the year 193, the Year of the Five Emperors on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Year of the Four Emperors
09:05

As long as the Roman empire lasted, they never created a set method of choosing successors to emperors. This inability to have an idea of who would be next in line caused numbers problems during the history of the empire. 

The first major succession crisis occurred in the year 69. One emperor died, and there was no clear replacement. The result was chaos.

The Oxford English Dictionary
11:13

In 1844, the Philological Society of London began investigating the creation of a new English dictionary. This initial foray would lead to a dictionary that would be unlike any other dictionary ever created. 

It would not just give the definition and spelling of a word, but a complete history of each word and where it came from. It would be one of the most ambitious literary projects in history.

Exclaves and Enclaves
09:24

Normally, if a foreign country has you totally surrounded, that isn’t a good thing. However, in some parts of the world, it is a normal, everyday occurrence. 

Due to historical quirks in drawing maps, there are parts of some countries which are separate from the mainland and are totally surrounded by another country.

The Crash At Crush
08:53

In 1896, the United States was experiencing what we now call a recession. The Panic of 1896 had made life tough on everyone, and many of the companies in the highly competitive railroad business were looking for new ways to make money. 

One man, William George Crush, came up with a smashing idea. 

His idea was so popular that it drew enough people to create the second-largest city in Texas for a single day, and then subsequently got him fired.

ALL RATS MUST DIE!!!
08:36

Humans and rats have lived in an uneasy relationship for millennia. Rats have spread diseases like the bubonic plague, destroyed grain harvests, and stolen our pizzas. 

In return, rats have given humans…...pretty much nothing. 

As such, humans have waged a relentless war against rats which for the most part has gone nowhere. However, there are some fronts where we have had amazing success.

However, there is one country where you have to be careful what currency you get because there are different notes produced in different parts of the country, and the different notes aren’t accepted everywhere in the country.

The printing press is considered to be one of, if not the greatest invention in history. The printing press allowed for an explosion in information and it ushered in the renaissance, the enlightenment, and the scientific and industrial revolutions. 

As such, Johannes Gutenberg is often considered one of the most important people in history.

But did Gutenberg actually invent the printing press? Should he be given credit for this important invention?

Surströmming: The World's Smelliest Food
07:29

There are many foods that are considered an acquired taste. Foods that might not be very palatable the first time you try it, or something that just doesn’t sit right with most people.

It could be something as simple as blue cheese, or something like the Filipino delicacy, balut, which is a boiled, fertilized egg with the embryo still inside. 

Sweden has its own acquired taste delicacy which has spawned hundreds of reaction videos as people and caused it to be banned by airlines.

One man from Germany named Herman Sörgel had a VERY ambitious idea. An idea that would literally change the map of the planet Earth, and was the biggest proposed engineering project ever put forward.

Why Don't We All Drive on the Same Side?
11:33

Standards make everything easier. When everyone can agree on a standard way to do things, regardless of how it is done, it can reduce confusion and facilitate progress.

You’d think if there was one thing that would be standardized everywhere, it would be the side of the road everyone drives on. I mean, there are only two options. 

Yet, there is no global standard for what side to drive on.

The Rosetta Stone
10:53

The ancient Egyptian civilization was one of the oldest civilizations that we know of on Earth. While there is much we know about them, knowledge of their system of writing, known as hieroglyphics had become lost by the middle ages.

Where there were different theories as to what the writing meant, no one was really sure how to read hieroglyphics.


All of this changed in 1799 when French troops under Napoleon Bonaparte discovered a stone that unlocked the secrets of the language.

Back in the day, sending letters was slow and potentially confusing. 

Nothing could travel faster than the speed of a horse or a ship, and addressing letters could be confusing if there were multiple people in a city.

Yet, it is something popes can do, and the precedent was set over 700 years earlier.

The Holy Grail

America's First Law

Let’s say you have a brand new country. You want to take it out of a spin and make some new laws. What is the first thing you do? Maybe ratify a treaty? Perhaps something about the economy.

Well, if you were the United States back in 1789, you didn’t do anything nearly that exciting.

Operation London Bridge
10:40

At some point in the future, a phone call will be placed by the private secretary of the Queen to the British Prime Minister. In this call, he will utter the phrase “London Bridge is down”, which will set off a preplanned series of events following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

As it has been over 65 years that the monarchy has changed hands in the United Kingdom, it will be something that most people in the commonwealth have never experienced.

The Pintupi Nine
07:34

In October 1984, nine members of the Pintupi Tribe in Western Australia met some long lost relatives they hadn’t seen in years. The relatives invited the nine people to come and live with them in their community in Kiwirrkura.

The significance of this event is that those nine people, two women with four boys and three girls, were the last aboriginal people in Australia to have contact with the outside world. 

Up until 1984, they had lived their lives the same as their ancestors had for tens of thousands of years. Learn more about the Pintupi Nine on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Election of 1800
08:05

I’ve done several episodes on close and interesting US presidential elections throughout history. Mainly they were to put current events into perspective, so you can realize that the controversies of today are really not all that new.

However, there was one election that might be considered the closest and most interesting in history, but the lessons for today are much less, simply because they changed the rules after the election, and there was never another one like it again.

So in that spirit, learn more about the Presidential Election of 1800 on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Extremely Long Term Debt
09:33

If you have ever taken out a loan, you are probably familiar with the details of taking on debt. You have an amount that is borrowed, an interest rate, and a term over which the debt is paid back.

However, sometimes, a term might be extremely long. In a few cases, the debts can be served in perpetuity.  

Learn more about the extremely old debts which took forever to pay off on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Pyrrhic Victory
06:52

In a previous episode, I talked about how you can win by not losing. That is called the Fabian Strategy named after Roman general Quintus Fabius Maximus.

However, the opposite is true as well. You can lose by winning. Here too, ancient history has examples for us, this time in the case of King Pyrrhus, who defeated the Romans but ultimately lost without losing a battle.

Learn more about pyrrhic victories, and how you can win the battle and lose the war, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

The Election of 1876
12:34

If you think the current American political climate is contentious, then you need to take a step back and take a close look at American history. 

The most controversial, divisive, and probably corrupt election in US history was the election of 1876. It’s an event that has been largely forgotten by most Americans today.

The Purchase of Alaska
09:04

In 1867, United States Secretary of State William Seward signed a treaty with the Empire of Russia to purchase the territory of what would be called Alaska.

The United States purchased it for 2 cents an acre. 

At the time it was called one of the worst deals in American History. Today, it is considered the greatest bargain of all-time.

On May 28, 1828, a 16-year-old boy mysteriously appeared in Nuremberg, Bavaria. He had a letter in his hand and could only speak a few words. No one knew where he came from, who his parents were, or why he was there.

Five years later, just as mysteriously as he appeared, he was found murdered. 

His tale made him one of the most talked-about celebrities in 19th century Europe.

Number One At Being Number Two
09:16

History remembers the rulers and the leaders. We know of Napoleon, Caesar, Elizabeth, Ghengis Khan, and Captain Picard.

However, for every one of the people I just listed, their success was due in large part to the people who worked underneath them. The ones who carried out their orders and made sure things got done. They had to have a competent number two.

In this episode, I will put forward that the greatest number two in history was Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa.

The Lykov Family
08:06

In 1978, a Soviet helicopter pilot flying over the forests of Siberia made an incredible discovery. Not far from the border of Mongolia, up the side of a mountain, he saw a clearing and signs of human habitation. 

The location was far removed from any other humans. In fact, it was almost 250 kilometers to the nearest human settlement. 

What they found there was astonishing.

The Discovery of Fire
09:13

When we think of what made human beings into humans beings, one of the first things which come up is the discovery of fire.

The control and use of fire is one of the earliest things which our ancestors did which separated us from other apes and began us on the path to becoming modern podcast listening humans.

Potpourri Volume I: Survival
08:21

In the course of doing research for shows, I often come across interesting facts that wouldn’t really make for an entire episode. They are really interesting, but I’m not sure how I could turn it into even a short daily podcast like this one. 

So, the solution was to create an episode where I could just randomly put all these loose ends together. 

With that, I bring to you my first potpourri show, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

Who Discovered Calculus?
08:41

For the last 300 years, a debate has raged between mathematicians about who should be credited with the invention of calculus: Sir Isaac Newton or Gottfried Wilhelm Leibnitz.

The sides of the debate have mostly been based on geography with English mathematicians advocating for Newton, and Continental Europeans siding with Leibnitz.

Fallacious Reasoning
10:15

We are often told that schools are where you learn how to think, not what to think. Sadly, almost no school curriculum deals directly with logic and the closely related subject of logical fallacies. 

Fallacies are all around us. Just read something online or watch a few minutes of television and you’ll probably encounter examples of people using fallacious reasoning and logical fallacies. In fact, you’ve probably engaged in it yourself. We’re all guilty of it.

The Fosbury Flop
07:09

At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, Dick Fosbury won the Gold Medal in the men’s high jump. 

He did it by jumping an Olympic record 2.24 meters or 7 feet, four inches. 

What was remarkable about his accomplishment wasn’t the height he jumped, but how it did it.

08:27

Eliud Kipchoge is unquestionably the greatest marathon runner in history. He’s won an Olympic Gold Medal, holds the world’s record, and has won 12 of the 13 marathons he has ever entered.

However, there was one accomplishment that had been out of reach for Kipchoge and every other marathoner: The 2-hour marathon.

On October 12, 2019, Kipchoge managed to break that barrier under some very special circumstances.

The Election of 1824
10:10

Many people think that politics and elections in the United States are the most controversial they have ever been.  History, however, begs to differ.

Perhaps the oddest and most controversial presidential election in American history was the election of 1824. It is an election that doesn’t get a lot of attention given who won and the lack of major issues at stake, but it is one which more people should be familiar with.

Learn more about the election of 1824 and the end of the Era of Good Feelings, on this episode of Everything Everywhere Daily.

People didn’t travel much in the ancient world. But, for those who did they developed the ancient equivalent of guidebooks. These were often lists of manmade sites and attractions which any traveler should take the time to see. 

Over time, one such Greek list was written down and it became known to us as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

The Roman Catholic Papacy is one of the oldest institutions in the world, second only to the Chrysanthemum Throne in Japan. Since its inception, there have been 266 popes, and a couple of anti-popes as well. 

The pope is not only the head of a religion but also the leader of a sovereign, albeit small, state as well. The process of choosing a pope is unlike any other in the world.

A Brief History of Timekeeping
11:57

Our ability to measure time is one of the fundamental things which makes us human. We’ve gone from very crude and inexact measures of time to time measurements which are so accurate that it would take billions of years to lose a single second. 

This increased accuracy has allowed us to navigate the seas, space, and even get directions to a nearby store.

Eponymous Laws
09:06

Everyone is probably familiar with Murphy’s Law which says that “Anything which can go wrong will go wrong.” However, there are many such laws, known as eponymous laws, which are sayings, adages, or truisms, which have been attributed to people over the years. 


These are not hard and fast mathematical or physical laws, but rather are general truths which can help you see and understand the world better...and they are usually named after someone.

While different countries may debate as to what sport should really be called ‘football’, the reality is that the word football describes a broad family of sports all of whom have a very similar background and origin.

Today’s English alphabet, you know that one from the song, is a modification of the system which was used by the Romans, which has had some unique quirks in the past that most English speakers are unaware of.

Why Doesn't the US Use the Metric System?

Of the 193 countries in the United Nations, exactly three haven’t adopted the widespread use of the metric system: Myanmar, Liberia, and the United States of America.


Of those three, the US is the country that really stands out. It has the biggest economy in the world, does an incredible amount of international trade, has immigrants from every country in the world, and is even the home to the United Nations.

If there was one country on paper that should be using the metric system, it is the United States.

Yet, we don’t.
