First a couple of standard, not very mentionable things:
  • Thomas Bewick's History of British Birds (the one with the gannet) was the book thrown at Jane Eyre when she was ten.
  • Lord William Hamilton, Vice-Chamberlain to Queen Caroline of Ansbach, was so poor that the Queen described him and his wife as "handsome beggars.
  • Sydney Barnes (not pictured) took 24 five-wicket hauls in 27 Test cricket appearances. But which century? And kwhen will the start playing cricket for real?
  • Christian princes, counts and writers flocked to the court of the first Sadigura Rebbe, Avrohom Yaakov Friedman. And once again pibbur doesn't know what he's writing about.

And here's the thing you've been waiting for:
The spider genus Predatoroonops received its name after its species' similarities to the creature from Predator.

pibbur who has no problems with gannets and robins.
