You Learn Something New Everyday Thread - October - 15-02-2015

This thread is about learning something everyday and sharing that knowledge with other nixers.

To start it off I learned today that Mr. West's name "Kanye" means "The Only One" in Swahilli. He has a song called "Only One" where he speaks from the view point of his mother, that passed away.

Around 450 B.C. there was a small place in which their culture valued wisdom that came from drinking wine. Being drunk while debating was a key-aspect in decision making. The decisions/debates were made when everyone was sober one day and when everyone was drunk that other day, that way if it makes sense either way then it was a good decision.
