I've always wondered about this wine-colored sea of Greeks (because they had no word for blue...) How far the meaning of any word describing a color has drifted from its original meaning?
This isn't another story about that dress, or...

Quick: How many moons does the Earth have? You might be forgiven for saying “one,” but it turns out the question isn’t all that easy to answer … because it depends on what you mean by “moon.” Of course, we have one moon, the one we call the Moon. It...
