Here’s a link to a fun infographic by way of LivingGreenMag.com. Actually, you probably do know a lot of this stuff, but it’s still a fun read.
Among other things, this infographic informs us that cenosillicaphobia is the term for fear of an empty beer glass; beer apparently prevents kidney stones (at the expense of liver damage, but hey); and the first drunken driving incident occurred around 2000 B.C. The punishment, after a drunken charioteer, ran down a vestal virgin of the goddess Hathor? Crucifiction, of course. Which is actually a bit more lenient than today’s U.S. drunken driving laws.
But you won’t believe where they crucified the inebriated chariot driver … just click the graphic to check it out.
