On this episode, we take a look at a memorable lesson from Scotland's Robert the Bruce... and some buzzing, winged, armored and leggy aspects of the natural world. We put them under the magnifying glass and consider a few lessons we can learn from them.
Does it involve hasenpfeffer?
No, but it does involve bagpipes ...
Nope. Scotland’s Robert the Bruce was going to give up, tucked away in his hideout, when he observed a spider, try, try and try again to spin a web. He took it as a sign to never give up and went on to victory.
The True Story of Robert the Bruce, Scotland’s ‘Outlaw King’
[snip] Six weeks before he seized the Scottish crown in March 1306, Robert the Bruce murdered his closest political rival... With the independence movement largely crushed, Bruce and most of the Scottish lords submitted to Edward’s authority... John Comyn continued battling the English until February 1304, when he negotiated peace terms that restored Scotland’s “laws, usages, customs and liberties” and provided for a representative assembly.
