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

    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? The surprising answer: just about everyone, as long as the complaints are set to music and delivered in four-part harmony by a choral ensemb...

    Car Sharing Programs / The stress-free alternative to car ownership MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! For all the benefits automobiles provide, their impact on air quality has been quite harsh. I’m as concerned about the environment as the next person, and as I look out over the smog-filled skies of California, I can’t help but be annoyed at the millions of cars spewing pollutants into the air. I’m driving...

    Mantle Convection / Currents under the earth's crust MP3

    Many years ago I read an article in which the author jokingly referred to something called the “International Stop Continental Drift Society.” Believe it or not, ISCDS was an actual organization in the early 1980s that produced a tongue-in-cheek newsletter for geologists. If it were still around, I’d join in a second: stopping continental drift, like any number of other futile and pointless endeavo...

    Pastis / The noble successor to absinthe MP3

    It’s all Peter Mayle’s fault. Before I fell under his nefarious influence, I had very simple tastes. Food was food; a burger and fries eaten on the run was a perfectly satisfactory dining experience. But then I read A Year in Provence and its sequels, books that tell colorful tales about ordinary life in the southern French countryside. To hear Mayle describe life in Provence, every waking hour is conc...

    Public Enrichment Project / Fun and common sense for a better world MP3

    When I began working on Interesting Thing of the Day, it was not with the idea that it would make tons of money. I was, and still am, optimistic that eventually the revenue generated by this project will be enough to make it worth the time spent working on it. But when you get right down to it, I do this because I feel it needs to be done. I like to learn, teach, and have fun, and Interesting Thing of the Day accompl...
