the big 1,000 


LDT had its 1,000th post yesterday by jac o.

To celebrate this anniversary there will be a history lesson.

A few things that happened in 1000 BCE:

The swastika became a commonly used sign (this was before hitler got his grubby paws on it)

The Phoenicians develop their alphabet of 22 signs for consonants. Although not the first alphabet, it is the one adapted by both Greeks and Israelites to their own needs, giving birth eventually to the Roman alphabet that is used in most Western nations today.

in 1000 AD:

Toothpaste was created in China from soap bean powder.

The birth of pizza occured in Constantinople (later spread west to Itay)

Heres to 1,000 more!!
