Demosthenes\' Stones / Improving your diction, Athenian style MP3

Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! It’s a good thing I had never heard of Demosthenes when I was a child. I would have gotten in trouble. My mom would have said, “Don’t talk with your mouth full.” And I would have replied, “Don’t you want me to be a famous orator like Demosthenes? I’m training!” And then I woul... Source: itotd.com

    Light Pollution / Urban assault on the night sky MP3

    I used to go for a walk every night. It was a pleasant habit—exercise, fresh air, quiet time alone to think. I made a point, whenever possible, of walking in an area away from the city lights, where the sky was dark enough that I could get a good look at the stars. I knew how to pick out some of the constellations, though I could never quite understand how anyone could see a goat or an archer in the patterns o...

    Propeller Beanies / The story of the geek's icon MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old!

I try to provide enough context and detail so that any reasonably intelligent person can get the gist of what I’m saying, even without prior experience in the topic I’m dis...

    Complaints Choirs / Setting the world's problems to music MP3

    The acoustics in my apartment are lousy. I have too many work deadlines. The dollar-to-euro exchange rate is depressing. It always rains when I want to go for a walk. It’s not hard to come up with things to complain about, but who wants to listen to someone else complain?

    Fasting / There's more to not eating than you think MP3

    Because of my abiding interests in food, cooking, and unusual stories, I was excited to discover the books of Margaret Visser. Visser achieved literary fame for her books on the culture of eating: Much Depends on Dinner and The Rituals of Dinner. But the first book of hers I read was The Way We Are, a collection of short essays on all sorts of interesting things, from the unexpected origins of words to the stories be...
