Fact for the day

The chinchilla is crepuscular.

That is all. No, really. I just like that sentence. It's fluffy at one end and jargony at the other.

Why I love the Internet today

Lovely useful web pages like this one on 10th century Cornish names. I mean, could it get any more perfect for my current needs than this?

Also, lots of crazy sites by people who make swords and knives with pattern-welded steel. Aka Damascus steel, though the historic technique might have been different.

PS: I need to go back to school and get, like, a million more degrees. One in The History of Everything. Another in All The Languages There Are.
