    Forgetting Sakharov was pretty bad also.

    Dorothy Hodgkin. Or Marie Curie.

    Which would you rather have witnessed personally (assuming time travel, safe transport back to the present, etc.):

    the taking of the first ever photograph
    or
    the taking of the first ever photograph of atoms?

    A good group. Believe it or not, Sun Ra gets gold. Shining, sterling silver for Olivier. And a three way tie for bronze between Mary Cassatt, Richard Wagner, and Bernard Shaw. (What an odd podium)

    You?

    Cassatt and Olivier share the gold, Doyle takes the silver, and Milk the bronze. Morrissey and Wagner can duke it out at Worlds.

    post-Olympic Worlds
    Worlds the season after the Olympics
    Worlds midway through the cycle
    Worlds the year before the Games

    Meh, that was a bad podium attempt.

    Gold to Artie Shaw (), Silver to the crunchy Scatman Crothers and Bronze to the glorious Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.

    Gold: Linnaeus
    Silver: Crothers
    Bronze: Kulik.

    Btw, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.'s birthdate is December 9, 1909.

    Why does no one care that I recently passed the 20,000 FSU post mark?

    Oh, really? I hadn't noticed.
    Because it doesn't matter.
    Because it doesn't matter.
    Because it doesn't matter.
    Because its non-mattering takes it into the realm of anti-mattering.
    Actually, I thought it best to let such evidence of no-life-having (20,000 posts in six years; ew) pass without comment.

    Good point.

    Various lists--my favorite people, animal species, luxury goods, charities, and campaigns--will be sent out to 500 of FSU's great, good, and infamous very shortly.

    Subway, though the city I live in lacks a subway system.

    "This or That"
    or
    "This or That...or This"?

    1) Well, some bubble and squeak, then.

    2) Next you'll be telling us that Calais isn't English anymore. (Which is silly, because it still is.)
