Sticks and Stones and Iron Ore

More random topics I have gotten to find out more about in the past few weeks, thanks to my work-in-progess:

  • the world record for stone-skipping (51 skips, in case you were wondering.  Also, bet you didn’t know that there is a North American Stone Skipping Association.)
  • the square footage of a particular high school in Frederick County, MD
  • online square root calculators
  • the writings of Lady Gregory
  • jewelry made from iron ore
  • pictures of loincloths
  • guns used by 18th century East Coast settlers
  • symptoms of smallpox
  • legends of the Mimis (fairy-like beings of aboriginal Australia)
  • dolphin physiology
