On todays wikipedia front page, in the did you know... section, it says
Did you know...
... that Niels Kaas was the chancellor of Denmark during the late 1500s?
Now I find this to be somewhat amusing, since I'm fairly sure not too many people know anything about Niels Kaas. This is basically a new name to me. So after I read the sentence it basically says
"Did you know that Denmark had a chancellor, especially during the late 1500s and that reference(chancellor of Denmark during the late 1500s) was refered to as Niels Kaas?"
Okay, so to summarize, at least what I get from the sentence is the information that Denmark had a chancellor, and then that this fact is appearently true for the late 1500s.
Now I wonder, is there a systematic way of getting this tower of informations from a sentence, like algorithmic, or do I have to "think"?
