The Myth of Pandora’s Box

The Greeks had a story for everything. You’ve heard “Pandora’s box” all your life as a term for opening up something you shouldn’t because you don’t know what’s in there. The original story is a cautionary tale about curiosity and temptation. Pandora gets the blame for all the evils of the world, yet it was Zeus who set her up to take the fall. This TED-Ed lesson from Iseult Gillespie has the story. -via Laughing Squid
