In November 1904, omnibuses started driving from Oxford Circus in London out to Cricklewood and back again. The 12-seaters were not the first motorized buses in the city; they were, it seems, the first, though, that came with a motor and but a single, permanently enclosed, deck.
About that time a limerick appeared that... oh, what's that I see over there? A bus full of emails by the dozen from Yahoo! Mail to Gmail?

Monarch butterflies look at their watch and at the sun.
As you can do with an analog watch on a sunny day, they deduce north and south from the sun's position — and the (general) direction in which to fly for migration. They seem not to care much for a map.
Now, the sun is but one star, of course; in this email background, you get a few more, and a butterfly (not a monarch, as far as I can fathom) as well:

Weights made ancient Greek long-jumpers leap farther, but what about the flutes?
Apollo's Pythian flute-song was apparently piped while athletes competed — or warmed up, at least. The rhythmic song, reasoning goes, helped coordinate and divide the three or possibly five (the long jump was part of the pentathlon after all) successive yet individual jumps.
Now, if you want to divide and coordinate emails, here's a tune to make Windows Live Mail jump in the right direction:

In the early 1990s, eleven young women studying psychology at the University of Louisville were asked their thoughts about a "cold drink insulator" and how they would like getting one as a gift.
Their response, overall, was what yours probably was just now: "A what? I don't..." (In numbers and on scales from 1 (worst) to 7, the insulator's attractiveness was 3.64 as such and its desirability 3.09 as a gift.)
These characteristics made the "plastic tube designed to hold beverage cans and keep them cold in warm weather" the ideal prop in a study that, of course, involved it as a gift. This, however, is another story. For now, how would you like a Zoho Mail account? It can be free:
