Via Mike Neiss at Tom Peters’ blog, comes this point to a Did You Know PowerPoint presentation done by Karl Fisch, a teacher at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colorado. The presentation is filled with some amazing facts for students or anyone. Be sure to download both the PowerPoint and the mp3 file to the same place on your computer to get the full effect, or, as an alternative, you can download a Windows Media Player version.
One of the facts presented is that there are now about 540,000 words in the English Language—about 5 times more than in Shakespeare’s time! Wow.
As I listen to the background music, I can’t get the climatic end scene of the movie, The Last of The Mohicans, out of my head, which may even add to the presentation.
