Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

The famed gorgon Medusa was once a human?

When praying to the goddess Athena in her shrine, Medusa, a human, was surprised by the presence of the sea god Poseidon. Athena appeared only to discover Poseidon ravaging Medusa and was outraged at the sacrilegious act committed in her temple. In her anger, Athena transformed the once beautiful Medusa into a gorgon with hair made of hissing snakes. From that point on, Medusa used her powers to her advantage, turning anyone that gazed into her eyes to stone. Seeking revenge on men for having been cast down by Poseidon, she would destroy any mortal entering her arena. She bested many champions but was ultimately defeated by Perseus, who used his metallic shield to reflect that stony gaze back at her. Some tales say that Athena cast her severed head into an iron shield; others speak of it being sold at a marketplace to a collector of obscure artifacts and weapons. It is also said that once destroyed; her body sprang forth the venomous snakes that crawl through the desert.
