Video (link) of the day

Cannot figure out why NPR would be using videos that are not embeddable even when using Vodpod (what I end up doing to embed all non-Youtube videos).  So, just take a second and follow the link about persons names that have become nouns.  Now, I knew about Guillotin and Sandwich, but had no idea that terms such as shrapnel, silhouette, and dunce actually come from real person’s names.  Pretty cool.
