Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Just to get this out there and ahead of the story - I have no idea how those illegal substances got into my system. It might have been those damn supplements... I really want this T-shirt... How would history have been different if England came in on the side of the South during the Civil War with the caveat that the Southern States return to being part of Great Britain?... Starting to think the Red Sox were wrong not to trade Blake Swihart for Cole Hamels a few seasons ago... Ted Nugent said that Stranglehold is really a love song. Now I have the perverse desire to see someone like Tony Bennett sing it like a love ballad... On this day in 1687 Isaac Newton published his Principia perhaps the most import science book ever printed... "The universe if full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." - Eden Phillpotts...


  1. CSA rejoining Great Britain was a non starter since The UK had already abolished slavery

  2. Yes but GB could have had made an exception that CSA would be allowed to keep slavery for 99 years with no new imported slaves and no slaves on GB soil proper.
