Transcript of THE GORDIAN KNOT

- Oracles predicted the future king of Asia would "solve" the knot. (Alexander)

The Gordian Knot is a knot with the ends tightly tied into the center of the knot ball. No ends of the Knot are exposed. The man who made the knot dedicted the knot to the Gods (mostly Zues) who helped him be king. He tied his ox cart to a pole with this knot.
------WHERE????------
The Gordian Knot is loacted in the city Gordium which is loacted in Turkey.

Legend has it anyone who came to solve the puzzle would be ruler of the Earth!
------I WANT TO BE RULER OF THE EARTH!-------
Well its a little to late for that... In 333 B.C., a 23 year old named Alexander took a different approach to this tricky knot... He took his sword and sliced right through the cornel-bark ropes.
Later that night a storm pounded on the city of Gordium. Towns people believe
Zues was pleased with the way Alexander approached the knot. (The Irony)
In my opinion I think that Alexander cheated! I believe the task was to use what ever is up in the knoggin and solve the puzzle! Alexander just put his sword through the rope and took over the world.... LAAAAAMMMEEE. But thats only my opinion.
THANK YOU FOR WATCHING.
