Authors Who Made History

Emily Dickinson

Emily Dickinson

Emily Elizabeth Dickinson was a prolific American poet with a unique writing style. She was a poet with an exceptional ability to distill “amazing sense” from “ordinary meanings.” Her poetry is now considered among the finest in the English language. Yet much about this fascinating figure’s life and work is misunderstood. Often caricatured in popular culture as a white-clad recluse who poured out morbid verse in the sanctuary of her bedroom, Emily Dickinson was a serious artist whose intellectual curiosity and emotional intensity are revealed in concise and compelling poems that capture a range of human experiences.

Tuesday Trivia

Trivia

Hello fellow bloggers

Tuesday is here again with some fun facts to tickle your brain!!

I enjoyed doing research for this post. Hope you enjoy reading them too 🙂

  • Did you know:

“Almost” is the longest word in the English language with all the letters in alphabetical order and “Rhythm” is the longest English word without a vowel.

  • Tring Tring:

In 1865, Boston Post published about the telephone:

“Well-informed people know it is impossible to transmit the voice over wires. Even if it were, it would be of no practical value.”

“And imagine where we are today, transmitting voice wirelessly!”

  • Hold your breath for this one:

 The China National Highway 110 traffic jam is the longest traffic jam in the history that lasted for more than 10 days with cars moving only 0.6 miles a day!!

“I am glad I did not witness it! Did anyone of you experience it personally?”

  • Another surprising fact:

There are more possible iterations of a game of chess than there are atoms in the known universe.

“I am never going to say I am a good chess player!”

  • You must take this one seriously:

If you try to suppress a sneeze, you can rupture a blood vessel in your head or neck and die! Also, if you sneeze too hard, you can fracture a rib!

“So guys don’t think of holding back your sneeze next time!

Just wondering is this why we say “God Bless you” when someone sneezes!”

  • Watch this out:

It would take 1,000 years to watch every video on You Tube!

“So, no use keeping a count, I guess!”

I found the chess fact most intriguing. Which one did you find most interesting?
