thinkthinkFunny ol’ thing! We rarely, if ever, think about ‘think’ itself. Where does this word come from?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Difference between a hill and a mountain” — 1,000′ appears to be the demarcation. You need to have a summit, and if the summit is above 1,000′ it is a mountain, if not, it is a hill. In the 1995 movie “The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain“, that I pointed out to you yesterday, the Welsh villagers set about raising the level of their hill above 1,000′. Cute.

maxresdefaultEasy question. But, have you ever thought about it. I think I run up a mountain, but is it really a hill? I didn’t know. I did remember the movie (⇒). So I knew there was a height criteria. So what is that height?

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “When we figured out that the Milky Way was a galaxy” — The official answer is 1920! So that is still less than 100 years ago. We, as humans, have known for ever that there was a ‘Milky Way’ up there, in the heavens. But, until 1920 we didn’t really know that there were other galaxies, that we could see, up there. It was discovering these other galaxies, c. 1920, that enabled us to figure out that the Milky Way was also a galaxy — one of many. This article will help.
