This was in 1948, so i am not really sure if this person would be the FIRST president of Isreal.
If i am mistaking, please accept my apologies. :blushing: :cry:

But this definetely took place in 1948


regards
marlon

I think it was 1952, just after Chaim Weizmann's death. So it should be 'second President'.

5) Aristarchus of Samos. Of the ancient greek school

Aarrgh! Couldn't get that name out right, no matter how hard I tried. Arcturus, Hectarchus, geez, tried about every combination I could think of and couldn't remember his name.

Scissors (as we know them) have been around for a couple of thousand years. Long before Da Vinci.

Two blades joined at a pivot between the grips and the cutting surfaces, yes. They've been around for millennia.
