To increase the fun factor, one day he kicked a ball onto the marsh and mud football was born. The championships have been held since 1998, and in 2000, a world championship with international teams was created; Jens Schlueter / Getty

An Incredible World Map That Plots the Literal Translation of Every Country Name In the World

with one comment

The Literal Translation of Country Names is a remarkably researched map created by Neomam for their client Credit Card Compare, which plots the etymological origins of every country name in the world. Drawing from sources such as The CIA Factbook and Oxford University Press, the map offers insight into the spirit behind each name.

Europe has a long history of exploration, and many of the country names reflect the lands and those who explored them. …Africa is known as the cradle of civilisation – the place where all human life stems from. Its country names reveal a history of indigenous cultures and colonisation. … Asia …rich diversity of culture and history is reflected in its country names. …North American country names tell a story of European colonisation. …South America has some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. It’s also home to the world’s largest river: the Amazon. …Oceania may be the smallest continent, but its diverse landscapes – from tropical rainforest to volcanoes to grasslands – have fascinated people for centuries.

We live in a time of air travel and global exploration. We’re free to roam the planet and discover new countries and cultures. But how much do you know about the people who lived and explored these destinations in times past?

Learning the etymology – the origin of words – of countries around the world offers us fascinating insight into the origins of some of our favorite travel destinations and the people who first lived there.

He Pingping – Homem mais baixo do Mundo (73cm ; 22 anos)

leave a comment »

Aos 22 anos mede apenas 73 cm e é reconhecido pelo livro de recordes do Guinness , desde 2007,como o homem mais pequeno do Mundo que consegue andar.



Já esteve nos Estados Unidos, Japão e Reino Unido onde se encontrou com o homem mais alto do Mundo que mede 2,36 metros.

Vejam aqui a reportagem:

Outra curiosidade: os homens mais pequeno e mais alto do Mundo nasceram ambos na mesma aldeia.

Chama-se He Pingping que em chinês quer dizer “garrafa de vinho”. Nasceu numa aldeia do norte da China, pesava 500 gramas e só cresceu até aos 18 anos.

Ora essa… Lembro-me de um livro que tenho algures (muito antigo, remonta a 199x e tais), em que tinha uma imagem destes dois senhores (acho eu que eram estes):

2 metros e 36 centímetros
