Did You Know?
Did you know about what a Canticle is in the Episcopal Church?
A non-metrical song used in liturgical worship. Canticles are drawn from biblical texts other than the Psalter. The term is derived from the Latin canticulum, a "little song." In practice, canticles are sung or said in worship. The BCP provides contemporary and traditional language canticles. Contemporary language canticles may be used in traditional language services and vice versa. Many canticles are traditionally known by the opening words (incipit) of the canticle in Latin versions of the Bible or service books, such as the Benedictus Dominus Deus (Canticle 16, BCP, p. 92). The BCP provides a Table of Canticles suggested for use at Morning and Evening Prayer (pp. 144-145). Canticles serve as responses to the readings at the services of the Daily Office. Canticles may also be used at the Burial of the Dead after the OT and NT readings, at the Holy Eucharist on certain occasions as an alternative to the psalm appointed, at the Easter Vigil after certain OT readings in the liturgy of the word, in the Daily Devotions for Individuals and Families, and after the Bible reading in the Order for Evening.
Did you know that pigs are constitutionally protected in Florida?
First written in 1838, the Constitution of the state of Florida guarantees the right to privacy, the freedom of speech, and the right of pregnant pigs to be free from cages. Unlike many crazy or outdated laws, this amendment is recent (passed in 2002) and comes from a well-meaning place: the prevention of cruelty to animals. During pregnancy, a pig must not be caged or even tethered such that it can't turn around freely.
Did you know that Mr. Cherry breaks all the records you've never heard of?
Japan's record breaker for most records broken is Cherry Yoshitake, a children's entertainer who goes by "Mr. Cherry." Mr. Cherry is a Japanese comedian, who is known for having the most Guinness World Records in Japan. He currently holds 22 world records, including the "Most walnuts crushed by sitting down," and "Most underpants pulled on" just to name a few.
In 2013, he broke the Guinness World Record for "Most walnuts crushed by sitting down" on CBBC children's TV show, titled "Officially Amazing". He has been featured for 7 consecutive seasons, in which the show has been nominated a number of times by the BAFTA, and RTS – Scotland Awards.
In 2018 alone, Mr. Cherry set one-minute records for the most pairs of underwear pulled on (36), the most baked beans eaten (71), and the most apples bobbed (37).
He was introduced by a mass of TV shows, since he is the first Japanese to hold the most titles, surpassing even world-famous Japanese athletes.
As a Japanese game show master, his endeavors to break new records are being noticed around the globe. After 100 episodes of "Officially Amazing", he returned conquering Rome!
And 2022 is "USA"! Watch out, everyone!!!
