Oddities and Awesome abound!
:: Ahhh, training videos — the bane of existence of everybody who has ever worked, well, anywhere. Personally, I can’t stand training videos and I invariably find them a giant waste of time.
But this one, from Wendy’s in the 80s, is fascinating. It’s just your normal boring training video, dull-as-ditchwater, until you get to about the 3:40 mark.
:: James Garfield is the only President to prove a mathematical theorem. Now, there are two things Garfield can be known for! (The other is that he died of a gunshot wound just six months into being President.)
:: If you’re on Facebook, go like a page called “Grandiloquent Word of the Day”. Because then you’ll get a daily dose of words-gone-by, words just waiting to be dusted off and used again, the vocabulary analogs of poor Woody in the toybox. And the words come with nifty illustrations!
