Incipit

This is the ongoing, introductory cover page. Know that this blog is semi-active, so please explore the archive to read the profound or crazy stuff I have written. Occasionally, I add something new. And I promise that you will find no boring stories about my cats, mainly because I have no cats. If you have any questions, be sure to consult the FAQ.

Sherlock Holmes Quotations


"The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes."

— The Hound of the Baskervilles


Holmes was shuffling through the morning newspapers on the table as he refilled his pipe with tobacco. I heard him laugh to himself and say to me, "It's true, Watson. Socialism always begins with talk of the international brotherhood of man but ends with having to eat your own pets.” I was amused at his observation and then added, "Well, in that case, Holmes, I daresay it is a good thing we don't own any bats or pangolins."

— The Wreck of the SS Friesland
