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

    Piñatas / History of a breakthrough MP3

    Happy birthday to us: Incredible but true: Interesting Thing of the Day is 10 years old! I can’t remember when I first learned of the existence of piñatas, but it must have been at a very early age.

    Missile Silo Homes / Hole is where the heart is MP3

    As much as I enjoy urban life, there are times when it gets to me. The noise, traffic, crime, and cost of living occasionally make me long for a quiet, affordable home out in the middle of nowhere. At times like these, I like to browse the real estate listings on eBay.

    Lichens / A tale of two organisms MP3

    by Morgen Jahnke There are some things in the natural world I tend to take for granted, but that reveal true surprises when I look at them more closely. Such is the case with lichens. I’ve known about lichens since childhood, but it turns out I never really knew anything about them at all. I always assumed they were like mosses, vegetable-like things that grew on the ground, rocks, and trees. In fact, lichens...
