History Fact

In the Ancient Olympics, athletes performed naked.

The athletes did this to imitate the Gods, but also to help them easily clear toxins from their skin through sweating after each attempt at a sport.

This translates as “to train naked”.

You don’t have to tip the person who comes out to pump your gas, but a buck or two is always nice.
