I like weird facts that aren't well known.  German espionage efforts during WW II against the U.S. for instance.

Ok, maybe he didn't do it personally, but Jon Lovitz said he got Phil's wife (the one who shot him) hooked on cocaine again.

The Wikipedia article of the day is on L. Ron Hubbard.  I think this quote sums up his plans:

Foolishly perhaps, but determined none the less, I have high hopes of smashing my name into history so violently that it will take a legendary form even if all books are destroyed. That goal is the real goal as far as I am concerned.

I think he achieved his goal.

Here at my blog we're (the royal we) starting a new feature, the shithead of the day.

And our first shithead featured is Diego de Landa.    Thanks for burning all the codexes, asshole.

You can't resign as an MP.

Nope, sorry, you must represent your elected constituents, even if you don't want to.   This also brings into focus the history of a country which has thousands of years of history.     Can I get a hip hip hooray for Jolly Old England?

I was trying to remember the Greek character from legend who would stretch or cut people to fit his bed.  

Procrustes!

This ends your Greek legend for today.       Your homework is to use Procrustean in a sentence.

Phan Xich Long was a geomancer and his followers went on to create their own religion based (at least partially ) on his beliefs.  He tried to free Vietnam, or rather take it back from the French, anyway.  He made magic potions which made his followers invisible.  He also created bombs.  Neither of which worked.  Long should have been more careful with his spell components, huh? 

Remind
you of anyone?  Cruise is supposed to have mystical powers as well.  Luckily Cruise hasn't tried to use his Scientology powers in the general public, or he'd be more of a laughing stock than he already is.   Though if he is psychokinetic he should show off.    "Jean Gray's got nothing on the Cruisinator!"

From Wiki article of the day:

An improperly handled human defecation resulted in a tomato plant taking root which was also destroyed.[13]
