why is it otherwise smart people find this so difficult to grasp? If average life expectancy is 33, that doesn't mean you're unlikely to make it past 33. It probably means you have a 50% chance of dying before you're 5, but otherwise likely to last to 66.

Life's not fair for Australian caterpillars 🐛: some become Dingy Bush-Brown butterflies, others become Peacock Jewel butterflies.

Hi , I'm really, really not impressed that an express Courier International parcel I sent to Portugal at great cost got there but was sent back because a bright spark working for you stuck a sticker on the receiver/recipient address. 🤦🏻‍♂️😠

If you want to read the first study, by John Fulton and myself, of how witchcraft accusations were handled in the community and in courts of law in Ireland, 1822-1922, read our article in this issue

1489 Map of the Iberian Peninsula. Intriguing that the cartographer chose to assign so much prominence to Santarém in Portugal (and not Lisbon).

Maybe because this is a map of coasts and ports and Santarem, being up the Tejo/Tagus river, meant you could stick a Portuguese flag on it without obscuring the coastal areas?

I remember listening to this podcast (featuring ) back in 2011, with a sleeping 6-month-old in one arm and playing hungry hungry hippos with a 2-year-old with the other arm.

1,000 conquistadors... and tens of thousands of indigenous Talxcalan and Mexica allies. It's an important 'detail'.

I have some good primary sources but looking for a secondary source/article to offer a more general introduction to the black legend.
