Quick knowledge

An Interesting History of 1752.
Here is an interesting historical fact. Just have a look at the calendar for the month of September 1752.
Go to Google type "September 1752 calendar" & see for yourself.
You will notice, 11 days are simply missing from the month.
Here's the explanation: This was the month during which England shifted from the Roman Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar.
A Julian year was 11 days longer than a Gregorian year. So, the King of England ordered 11 days to be wiped off the face of that particular month.
So, the workers worked for 11 days less that month, but got paid for the whole month. That's how the concept of "paid leave" was born. Hail the King!!!
In the Roman Julian Calendar, April used to be the first month of the year; but the Gregorian Calendar observed January as the first month. Even after shifting to the Gregorian Calendar, many people refused to give up old traditions and continued celebrating 1st April as the New Year's Day. When simple orders didn't work, the King finally issued a royal dictum; which stated that those who celebrated 1st April as the new year's day would be labelled as fools.
From then on, 1st April became April Fool's Day. History is really interesting.

       Importance of drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the Human body :

1.) 2 glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs.

2.) 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal helps digestion.

3.) 1 glass of water before taking a bath helps lower blood pressure.

4.) 1 glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack.

*Here's the edited version of my day*
Today, I learned French then forgot it, I became the ambassador to Narnia(but got fired for hitting on Susan), I was king for a day in Malaysia( which happens to be one of the few nations that still has a king),

I broke the light barrier(in a hang glider), hitched a ride on a shooting star, went skydiving off a dragon named flora( his mother hated him),

Wrote a bestseller, but it was so awesome the government put it on the banned book list, I've had my one hundredth birthday twice, I took a picture worth ten thousand words, the presidential candidates had me kiss babies for them,

I Started a war, and ended it in five seconds flat, I earned the nickname, kingmaker, and I found out who actually killed JFK.

What have you done today?

+Joe Garcia well I don't read that kind of material because I don't learn from it, but I have seen all but the last Harry Potter and I love those! My preacher preached against them once because of the warlocks and witches. Said we as Christians had no business watching that stuff. I disagree.

Beauty isn't two dimensional thing, you may not have a traditionally pretty face, or a have a great body. But there's no doubt in my mind  that there is something so beautiful in you, that Picasso couldn't capture with a brush, that Charles dickens couldn't put into words. So don't ever let somebody tell you that you aren't beautiful.
