Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

They died with their "books" on

To begin with, I admit that the name of this post is a play on words with an idea I had originally in mind and a hint from one of my students in level of 4º ESO (Natalia López) and a lucky misunderstanding.



Anyway, as I have just said, the idea to talk about this historical event came to my mind while listening to this part of the soundtrack of the film: "They died with their boots on" by chance:

This is a film I saw when I was a young boy and it is about the battle of Little Bighorn and General Custer. Here are some very interesting documentaries about what is said in the film and believed for a long time and the real story.
