The Songfactor's Choice Centenary Top Ten #100

Recommended Posts

Or Giants Country...

Did you happen to catch the professional football contest on television last week? The Giants of New York took on the Packers of Green Bay. And in the end, the Giants triumphed by kicking an oblong ball made of pigskin through a big 'H'. It was a most gripping victory.

While we're waiting for the results, here's a little trivia question (it has nothing to do with music :) ):

In 1851 Dr George Merryweather invented The Tempest Prognosticator! True or false?

True! An astonishing example of the ingenuity of Victorian England, the Tempest Prognosticator was designed by Dr George Merryweather, and used the intuition of leeches to ring a bell to predict a coming storm. The good doctor had a suitable name for his profession, don't you think?
