Why isn't a unicorn called a unihorn?  

Who first put the alphabet in alphabetical order?

Great fun facts for easy reading or listening

Great alternative to my usual book of the year. It is perfect listening for the dailey commute. I arrive to work every day with slightly more knowledge than yesterday.
