Lost Egyptian City Found Underwater After 1200 Years - Franck Goddio

1,200 years ago the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleion disappeared beneath the Mediterranean. Founded around 8th century BC, well before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, it is believed Heracleion served as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world.

Prior to its discovery in 2000 by archaeologist Franck Goddio and the IEASM (European Institute for Underwater Archaeology), no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found (the city was known to the Greeks as Thonis). Its name was almost razed from the memory of mankind, only preserved in ancient classic texts and rare inscriptions found on land by archaeologists.

HOW TO CHEAT ON A SCANTRON- Because i hate you all and exams are coming up , Here is a little trick to help you cheat on these scantrons for your exams. I used to do this all the time back in high school  . Before i tell you how to cheat let me explain a little about scantrons. When they get ran through the machine when an answer is wrong it marks it on the side. When it is done scanning all the answers at the end it will tally how many is marked then count the score. Now how to cheat is simple. Take a chapstick because it is wax. Run it one time through the part circled in the picture. If you didnt know you cant write on wax. So when you get a wrong answer and the machine tries to mark the scantron it wont print the tally and it wont count your answer as wrong ! Simple as that. Very simple very easy. Happy cheating everyone .

coulda used this trick today

I knew I saved it for a reason. And now, I share with you all.

this is actually true.  people did it in my high school all the time.
teachers caught on pretty quickly though, not sure i would recommend this
