10th president of the USA, John Tyler, has 2 living grandsons.

[www.cbsnews.com]

CHARLES CITY, Va. -- John Tyler was the first vice president elevated to the presidency on the death of the chief executive and the first president to marry in the White House. Nearly 175 years later, two of his grandchildren are still around.

Harrison Ruffin Tyler, 89, is one of two living grandsons of President John Tyler, who was born in 1790, one year after George Washington was sworn in as president.

Just three generations -- President Tyler, his son Lyon Tyler, and grandson Harrison -- span almost the entire history of the United States.

We met Harrison and his son William at President Tyler's Virginia estate. We asked William if people find it hard to believe that his father is the grandson of the 10th president.

Yep. I first learned about this last year.

I also learned that while the first pyramids were being built there was still a heard of Woolly Mammoths roaming around in Siberia

Cleopatra lived closer to the building of Pizza Hut than the pyramids.

There was more time between the Stegosaurus and the Tyrannosaurus Rex than between Tyrannosaurus Rex and you.

France was still executing people by guillotine when Star Wars came out.

Harvard University was founded before there was even calculus.

When Warner Brothers formed, the Ottoman Empire was still a thing.

The jewelry company Tiffany & Co. has been around longer than Italy.

Oxford University is older than the Aztecs

There are whales alive today who were born before Moby Dick was written.

The fax machine was invented the same year people were traveling the Oregon Trail.

This is what’s happening in the world at this very moment.

Can you imagine being a student in the very first section of "this new-fangled calculus stuff" offered at Harvard?

I certainly hope my post was not interpreted as me trying to make fun of anybody.

Can't be any worse than dealing with a 4th graders Common Core math homework.

Better yet at Oxford. Then they would have gotten Sir Isaac's version... Which is harder to figure out.

Whose version would Harvard have received? John Alden’s?

I am guessing cbelt3 was referring to Leibniz...

Newton's version was a little hard to comprehend, even if they both are credited with inventing The Calculus.

That said, i think they were still mostly doing theology at the Harvard Yard in the 17th century?
