There’s an 1,800 year-old Roman version of present day Swiss Army Knife, complete with folding spoon, fork, spatula, pick, spike and knife.

The word “procrastinate” comes from Latin meaning “to put off until tomorrow” and there is another word “perendinate” that means “to put off until the day after tomorrow”.

Also, research suggests that procrastination can be a cause of serious stress and illness.
