I just split off the narnia and cartoons content to Childhood nostalgia - Narnia and cartoons.  I considered giving them two different splits, but too much work - anyway they are related discussions.

But neither has much to do with this episode.

It seems I'm sheltered, as I've never heard of Charles Fort until I heard this story and will be going to wikipedia....

Oh, good, I wasn't the only one. (In fact, I believe that when I listened to the story, I assumed he was as fictional as anyone else in it.)

"People commonly use the word 'procrastination' to describe what they do on the Internet. It seems to me too mild to describe what's happening as merely not-doing-work. We don't call it procrastination when someone gets drunk instead of working." - Paul Graham

I read Charles Fort's BOOK OF THE DAMNED in fourth grade....
