The Judicial system is over a thousand years old, taking over from the royal Kings courts prevalent in the era.

Early courts in medieval times used the dangerous ‘Trial By Ordeal’ method,where the accused would be forced to get their hands burnt, and if the person healed in three days, he was considered not guilty.

The Navigational Precision Of Birds

Billions of songbirds migrate every year to different lands thousands of miles away, and the way they reach the exact same place to nest is fascinating and is as if they have precise GPS instruments installed in them.

This mysterious sense of compass direction is due to a ‘magnetic map’ that is very much like the way we use GPS (Cartesian coordinates).

Birds use massive magnetic maps to migrate – and some could cover the whole world

Why Britain has a royal family

For centuries, virtually every country in the western world had some sort of king and royal family.

Metric and Customary Systems

A brainchild of France, the metric system, or decimal-based measurement protocol, has not yet been adopted fully by many countries including the United States. This results in a different measurement unit for just about everything.

The U.S. Customary System is an inch-pound system having about 300 distinct units of measurement. A football field is measured in yards, while a race goes by meters. Air pressure is measured in PSI(for tires) but surface atmospheric pressure is calculated in inches on mercury, and air pressure in millibars.

Why Isn't the U.S. on the Metric System?

4 Lessons From Bungee Jumping
  1. Don’t overthink before deciding: On bungee jumping, the longer you wait to jump, the more you make excuses and convince yourself to back out.
  2. Live in the moment: Left hanging in mid-air while they pull you back up is an euphoric moment followed by feelings of peace and calm that you can appreciate because you are then living in the moment.
  3. Face your fears: you jump despite the fear and in the end you feel empowered and a sense of accomplishment. 
  4. Have faith that things will work out: people die bungee jumping but faith the cord won’t snap keeps people jumping regardless.
