I'm interested in scads of topics, and it seems I'm always running into interesting tidbits. I'd like to share some with you. I promise they'll always have at least a fleeting relevance to the day at hand.

This is Thursday October Christian, son of Fletcher Christian. Fletcher didn't want his son to have a name that reminded him of England, but apparently he didn't have anything against calendars.
