Prom with Aplomb

It’s said that every journey begins with a single step; even so, it’s odd to think that one of the culminating events of the High School experience takes its name from a simple walk. You might have already guessed that Prom is a shortened form of the word promenade, but did you ever wonder what…

It’s the atomic number of Unqadnilium (yikes!). The age at which Job supposedly died. The phone number for you’d dial for directory assistance if you found yourself in Cairo.

Under Pressure

We all are. Literally! At sea level, the Earth’s  atmosphere exerts 14.7 PSI (pounds per square inch) of pressure, so our bodies think that 14.7 PSI is completely normal; you’re completely unaware of this pressure that operates on and in you at all times.
