You know that Chris Columbus was the first European to step onto the mainland of South America in 1498...

...but did you know that, 15 months earlier, John Cabot, a Venetian in the service of King Henry VII of England, had become the first European since the Vikings to make a similar landing in North America?

Did you know that Edd's Tavern, started by Edd when he still used to post here, is now entirely in Russian? The url hasn't changed and the heading says Таверна Эдда, which is the same in Cyrillic. It seems to be nothing but recipes now. Weird.

He must have given up the domain name and someone else has picked it up. You register them for limited periods of time. I sometimes (usually when I'm drunk) go back and look at domains I used to own or administer for a laugh. Now Edd can too...

OK, but *why* did the sinister Putin and his evil minions take the name over, rather than picking a new one like Putinskya Krappska or whatever? There's something going on here ...

DYKT that on 2nd October in a swimming pool near Bournemouth a man shouted at some kids who bere being a nuisance. Four squad cars arrived with 8 cops; 2 cops jumped into the pool fully-clothed and dragged the man out. They later stated that no offence had been committed and released the man without charge.

Do the mods have access to stats for that kind of thing? In which case I shall start lobbying to be made one. I love stats, me.
