The fairest order is a random heap of sweepings.
— Heraclitus, Fragment 46.
ex Daniel W. Graham, trans. and ed., The Texts of Early Greek Philosophy : The Complete Fragments and Selected Testimonies of the Major Presocratics (2010)

Fanno to par, etto to mar,
Timin tudo, tido,
Foll to gar in, mitno to par,
Eido, teido, meido

Curling tongs were heated in the oven, or over a bunsen burner. Strands of hair were clamped between the tongs and rolled to form curls. If the tongs were too hot, they burned the hair and worse still, the skin of ones’s face and head. In 1872, a Frenchman named Marcel Grateau, invented irons with which one could produce soft, natural looking waves.
