Your professor asks “who came up with alphabetic order anyway?”
And you’re the only one that answers…the Phoenicians!
Not even realizing it was a hypothetical, joke question.
“Remember how easy it was to learn your ABCs? You can thank the Phoenicians!”
Thank you, Spaceship Earth…
….and the Phoenicians.
- Teacher: A long time ago, people thought there were only four elements. Can anyone guess what they were?
- Me: Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them, but when the world needed him most, he vanished.
- Teacher: What?
- Me: A hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. And, although his airbending skills are great, he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
- Me: But I believe Aang can save the world.
