  • 11:45 "ArcLight" is the name of a chain of cinemas in the US, so this made me wonder if there was a theatrical connection here too. According to the Edison Tech Center of New York, carbon arc lamps were valued in early Hollywood film production for their intense light, which was good for filming interior scenes. They were even used as a light source to project those same films in theaters. But early arc lamps emitted carbon monoxide, extreme heat, and sparks, creating dangerous working conditions for actors. In theaters, they burned and electrocuted technicians and caused many fires.Yikes.

  • Whatever happened to the old Swiss doctor Bircher and his muesli? All things considered, that is by far the more wholesome food than cornflakes, since it also contains raisins, nuts, fresh apples and all kinds of other goodies, and yet still considered to be a breakfast "cereal".

  • Yes i always learn something new 😁😁have you done the etymology of “hungry” why do we feel hunger and not…hung? It’s more like anger and angry but we do have angst, just like we have thirst 🤨

  • French "dejeuner" means breakfast but obviously also has the same source as the word "dinner". I never realised that…!

  • I try to remember all the interesting origins of expressions you share just so that way when one day when someone goes "huh, I wonder why we call it the "limelight"," I can just whip out these etymological trivia facts at them.

  • I know I'm late to the party, but fascinating as always.
    You always learn new things from these videos. 🙂
    Also, I have to commend you on how you attribute the images you use at the end of every video and in the show notes. You're doing it right! Keep up the great work!

  • This was a fascinating video. I love how interconnected things are. This allows us to see that no idea is entirely original, but owes something to the past. Thanks for creating this!

  • light bulbs are NOT vacuum!
    they are filled with inert gas. in vacuum the filament evaporates rapidly and thus the vacuum bulbs design was scrapped in no time.

  • I had to look up the lunar phases, if the crescent moon was still called a crescent after the full moon, since that phase is not exactly growing anymore. Turns out that phase is called the Waning Crescent and the other phase (before the full moon) is called the Waxing Crescent. So is waxing another word for growing? Wiktionary isn't very helpful here:

  • Wow. This channel needs more exposure. This is awesome content.

  • Crescere is the inchoative form. It means "to grow continuously" or "to keep growing."
