today i learned – thurs 4th jan 2018

thank god that it’s nearly friday πŸ™ŒπŸ» it’s definitely needed this week πŸ˜…

i’ve a feeling that this one might be a short but interesting one 😏

#tdil where the phrase “smoke and mirrors” came from πŸ‘πŸ»

for some reason, my first thought when someone mentions the above saying is a quick rendition of smoke on the water πŸ˜‚ … as you’d expect, they have nothing to do with each other πŸ™ˆ

anyway! as you’re probably aware, the saying relates to trickery or being deceptive or sneaky 😈

it’s a cool saying, but where on earth did it originate?! πŸ€” i shall tell thee 😏 apparently, it finds its roots in the exploits of stage magicians! πŸ§™πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ … (i’ll be honest, i didn’t see that coming when i read it πŸ™ˆ)

that said, it actually makes total sense … it’s a saying about deception and the whole point of being a stage magician is to deceive! 😏 … also, stage magicians use actual smoke and mirrors as ways to trick people πŸ˜‚ so, you know, makes sense πŸ‘πŸ»

erm … i don’t really have anything else to say about this πŸ˜… told you it’d be a short one!

on that note, i think it’s time to go to bed πŸ™ŒπŸ» have a good night folks!

  1. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually one thing which I believe I’d never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m taking a look ahead in your next post, I will attempt to get the hold of it!
