Welcome back, this week I'm going to tell you things you don't know about stuff you already know. Sounds crazy right?.

 

1. Sherlock Holmes

The wise cracking, funny, perceptive detective Sherlock. Turns out he was modeled after someone named Joseph Bell, a physician and lecturer at the medical school of the University of Edinburg. Joseph on a daily bases practiced his deduction and diagnosis abilities which over time grew to become almost like a gift which not only inspired Sherlock Holmes, but amazed those who witnessed this ability first hand. Talk about dedication.

 

2.Heels

Yes the shoes that look pretty unstable and dangerous. So imagine instead of a gorgeous model with long hair was replaced by an old french man. Interesting isn't it. Well before it was a woman's thing it was originally for men even kings wore them at a time. A symbol of wealth and who doesn't love a nice couple  inches added to our height?.. Other then NBA players.

 

3. Leonardo da vinci

Well honestly he's pretty much a mystery anyway, but on the bright side now you have a fact about him. You have to Leonardo wrote in Italian using a special kind of shorthand that he invented himself. People who study his notebooks have another problem. He usually used mirror writing, starting at the right side of the page and moving to the left. Only when he was writing something intended for other people did he write in the normal direction. So two facts it seems. Aren't we smart.

 

4. Atlantis

The underground city of untold adventures and fantasies. It is indeed real but it's name is actually Cyprus. Cyprus in its current form appears to be the mountaintop of what used be a larger island, most of which is currently under water.  An underwater valley stretching between Cyprus and Syria appears to be the “great plain” of Atlantis, and an underwater mountain in the middle of this valley appears to be the Acropolis Hill of Atlantis City. So maybe Spongebob was on to something, probably not.

 

5.Amazons

Remember the iconic hero Wonder Woman? well although flying might be a little much her, and her clan were actually a thing once. The works of the Greek historian Herodotus, written around the 5th century B.C., describe a group of female warriors who lost to the Greeks at the battle of Thermodon. Herodotus' Amazons were taken prisoner and put on ships, but overwhelmed and killed the Greek crew. Unable to sail themselves, the women drifted to the shores of the Black Sea. Not as happy but accurate none the less.
