“Phlogiston was without color, smell, weight, or taste. When you burned something, you were dephlogisticating it—that is, driving all of the phlogiston out of the material. Often this left behind only ash.”
Bill Fawcett, 100 Mistakes That Changed History

“And the rain came on like a monsoon, because it was one.”
Bill Fawcett, 100 Mistakes That Changed History
