Just 4 Fun # 31

Hello everyone! Here we are at the beginning of another week which promises to be hot, hotter and hottest. The first bite of summer is the worst. And Delhi weather is possibly the worst. There’s hardly any space between winter and summer.

Enough of weather woes for today. Let’s look on the lighter side shall we?

Sometime ago I had shared a link of some priceless student bloopers. But perhaps you may have missed it. And it was pretty long. To give a brief update it is a collection of student answers to exam question and like someone said – the only time a student changes the course of history is during an exam πŸ˜€

So here I am with a chosen few πŸ˜‰

Without the Greeks, we wouldn’t have history. Poor chap, I do feel for him

The Greeks invented three kinds of columns – Corinthian, Doric and Ironic. Excuse me, Doric is rather Greek to me.

They also had myths. A myth is a female moth. Hahaha, a likely story!

One myth says that the mother of Achilles dipped him in the River Stynx until he became intolerable. Intriguing…

Achilles appears in “The Illiad”, by Homer. Homer also wrote the “Oddity”, in which Penelope was the last hardship that Ulysses endured on his journey. Actually, Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name. Distinctly odd

Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. He was probably hemmed in by his wife.

In the Olympic Games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled the biscuits, and threw the java.The reward to the victor was a coral wreath. He had me at biscuits πŸ˜€

The government of Athen was democratic because the people took the law into their own hands.Sounds pretty familiar

There were no wars in Greece, as the mountains were so high that they couldn’t climb over to see what their neighbors were doing. There you have the solution to wars – build higher mountains.

When they fought the Parisians, the Greeks were outnumbered because the Persians had more men. This guy is going to go places!

I think it’s time to switch topics before I forget whatever little history I know…

BindiThose who agree raise your hands! πŸ˜€

  2. Send some of the hot heat to New York City. We have been freezing here. Still wearing my winter coat, hat, gloves and scarf. A few weeks ago we had a snow storm. Snow might be pretty but Icy cold Blizzards are dangerous. I Love heat. When I retire I’m moving to the Southern Part of the United States where the weather is warmer. Take care and God Bless!

    1. Please please take some – we have a surplus here. I can imagine – icy winters are terrible. But I guess you havent really experienced heat πŸ˜‰ Its sizzling and as we werent prepared for the sudden change the ACs are yet to be serviced and functional – got a terrible headache as a result. Hope you have warmer weather soon. May God bless us all!
