SOME MORE HISTORY

Just for fun, here are a few more choice entries from my own stash of odd answers. Now have fun, study hard and learn these!

"Andrew Carnegie came from Ireland as a Scottish immigrant."

"Women in 1870 did nothing."

"The reasoning behind who was emperor of Japan was basically, "it just is." Japan ends up getting divided into two sides. Both shoguns wanted each other's side, so, ironically, they just switched. Eventually one of the shoguns died and the other took over both sides."

"Not only did the British East India Company take over the country of Britain, they also came to India and dominated everything they wanted. They sent basically all of the Indian people out of India and set up civilizations for themselves. Although the people of India didnít agree with the BEIC, they did what they were told. The BEIC was attacked by a different country and decided to take Indiaís soldiers and bring them on their side. In the end the BEIC was defeated and the Indian people ultimately moved back to India."

"Sir Isaac Newton - 1600s, developed the light bulb."

It was a light bulb, not an apple that fell out of the tree and inspired him to bake cookie???

I remember my 6-year-old daughter quite excited telling me she had learned a Christmas Carol at school.
She told me it was called : "While Shepherds Washed Their Socks By Night".

Yes. a light bulb went on above Newton's head when he figured something out -- he thought about it for a minute and said, Ah ha! I must invent this!
