About this blog...

Over the years, I've realized that the internet is a small place, and I've occasionally tried to find information that simply does not exist on the internet. Usually this works as follows:

  • Come to the questionable conclusion that I'm the only one in the entire world that knows some factoid.
  • Think existentially about the limitations of human knowledge and how small the world is.
