If you’ve never heard of the story of folk hero William Tell, then you have no culture. You’re also much like us because we had to look him up on Wikipedia to make sure we got the reference right. Read about him by clicking here.

The UFC middleweight contender kicked a shoe off a guy’s head, much like William Tell shot an apple off his son’s head way back in the 14th century. Boom, a history lesson packaged with a 15-second video designed to distract you from your work day. You can leave your thank yous in the comment section.
