Today, I Found Out...
27 March 2014

I didn't think I was a person who enjoyed learning new facts until I discovered this website...  

I stumbled on it when it showed up on a Google search to the effect of "Is it true Sherlock Holmes never actually said 'Elementary, my dear Watson'?" and read a fascinating article on how that phrase came into being.  And then I read another fascinating article.  And another.  And another.  

The site answers all the random and odd questions I had fleetingly pondered over, such as why we say "o'clock", exactly why tuberculosis was called consumption and why the speed of sea-faring vessels is measured in knots.  

Now, when I go to parties, I'll have something interesting to say!
