  1. Sweating and doing outdoor house maintenance. And fresh local vegetables. I was going to say bikini season... though I've yet to ever wear one.
  2. Knowledge is power, so here's your Tuesday Timeline Trivia for September 21st: 1745 – A British army was defeated in under 30 minutes by the Jacobite forces of Prince Charles Edward Stuart at the Battle of Prestonpans/Gladsmuir. 1853 – Heike Kamerlingh Onnes, Dutch physicist and Nobel Prize laureate who liquefied helium and discovered superconductivity, was born. 1933 – Salvador Lutteroth established Mexican professional wrestling, lucha libre.
  3. The history of the big hat I always find to be fascinating (as well as the Great Schism between the Catholic and Orthodox) since it played such a dominant role. I always like to use it to find inspiration for D&D story arcs involving deities and their temples.
  4. Do you want chocolate chip cookies instead of oatmeal raisin? I buried some treasure, mom's homemade meatloaf and mashed potatoes, in my stomach. Then celebrated with rum and Coke (minus the rum). Very piratey.
  5. Mondays, bleh... but here's your Monday morning trivia offering for September 20th: 1378 – Cardinal Robert of Geneva was elected as Pope Clement VII, in opposition to the previously elected Pope Urban VI, beginning the Papal Schism. 1860 – The future King Edward VII of the United Kingdom began the first visit to North America by a Prince of Wales. 1973 – Billie Jean King beat Bobby Riggs in the "Battle of the Sexes" tennis match at the Houston Astrodome.
  6. Apparently, after putting my name into a generator, my pirate name/moniker comes out to Stutterin' Mitch Teach. If I use my middle names, I become Epileptic Broderick Hawkins. Intuition tells me I wasn't meant to be a feared pirate.
  7. The Sunday stroll through history for September 19th: 1356 – Battle of Poitiers: An English army under the command of Edward, the Black Prince, defeated a French army and captured King John II of France. 1852 – Italian astronomer Annibale de Gasparis discovered the asteroid Massalia from the north dome of the Astronomical Observatory of Capodimonte. 1991 – Ötzi the Iceman, the natural mummy of a man who lived between 3400 and 3100 BC, was discovered in the Alps on the border between Italy and Austria.
  8. Did you know that the Netherlands, as a whole population, has the tallest people in the world? But it seems the latest generation measured has gotten shorter by 1cm for men, and 1.4cm for women. The things you learn going down the internet rabbit hole.
  9. Found the chips in the discount bin at the grocery, and thought "for $0.89, why not?" Tastes pleasantly like spicy chicken, until the potato kicks in; I'm impressed. Plus, it's a cheap pringles can, which is always useful for hobbying in some way. As for the can of Coke, well, I'm just addicted.
  10. Your Saturday selections of what happened for September 18th: 1066 – Norwegian king Harald Hardrada landed with Tostig Godwinson at the mouth of the Humber River and began his ill-fated invasion of England, though it would have important ramifications weeks later when the Norman invasion began. 1618 – The twelfth baktun (a period of 144,000 days) in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar began. 1870 – Old Faithful Geyser in Yellowstone National Park was observed and named by Henry D. Washburn.
  11. Tired... but here's your morning trivia for what happened on September 17th: 1683 – Dutch scientist Antonie van Leeuwenhoek wrote a letter to the Royal Society describing "animalcules", later known as protozoa. 1859 – Joshua A. Norton, born in England and living in San Francisco, declared himself "Norton I, Emperor of the United States." Most citizens of San Francisco considered him insane or eccentric, yet humored him during his 21-year "reign". 1983 – Vanessa Williams became the first black Miss America.
  12. I went to meet my brother at his workplace once for lunch years ago, and upon introduction, his shift-leader said, "I understand you're a man who knows what to do." A fairly ambiguous statement, and at the moment I didn't know how to respond until my brother pointed out my black eye from a recent tournament, then I got it.
