...Rasputin's penis has its own Wikipedia aricle.

Danish nobleman and astronomer Tycho Brahe was one interesting fellow. He kept a dwarf as a court jester who sat under the table during dinner. He even had a tame pet moose.

Tycho also lost the tip of his nose in a duel with another Danish nobleman and had to wear a "dummy" nose made from silver and gold, but that’s another story.

It was said that Tycho had to hold his pee during one particularly long banquet in 1601 (getting up in the middle of a dinner was considered really rude) that his bladder, strained to its limits, developed an infection which later killed him!

Later analyses suggested that Tycho died because of mercury poisoning but that’s not nearly as interesting as the original story.

You know what'd be a nice little thing to have on here?

Our agenda thing that lists when chapter sections end. 

I'd do it myself but I seem to have misplaced mine. But when I find it, I'll post those.

Cause I bet each of us has had one of those nights where we left it at school and just had to guess when to end

Ernst Mach           Ernest Renan          Ernest Rutherford

I like the name trends
And how sometimes a bunch of the same name pops us at a certain time period

Ten points if you know what any of those Ernests did! (Without looking it up, of course)

Unrelated Interesting Tidbit:
   Remember last chapter reading about Mary Wollstonecraft? She was the feminist who wrote "The Vindication of the Rights of Women" in the 1790s. Well, she married a man named William Godwin, who was one of the major leaders of the anarchist movement. Mary died giving birth to her only child, a daughter also named Mary. Who is later to be known as Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. Pretty cool, huh? You can thank Ms Karolak for sharing that little story with me

Also, I really liked these last few chapters. It's closing in on the gap of what I didn't know in history and what I already understood.
Fun fun fun 
Except, reading that Darwin thought women were inferior made me really sad
