The world has changed dramatically, but the way we all view publishing is firmly rooted in the 1950s. Can we all figure out a way to change that?

Truly an unbelievable story. Federal government is out of control now.

Stand up for yourself. How many times have you heard that? Well, writers rarely do. So here's how to do it in publishing:

More about the early and very rapid spread of capsicum peppers in the Old World than I've ever seen in one place before.

I also didn't know they were such a nutritional boon.  It appears one reason they became so entrenched is they're a good source of Vitamin C in peasant cuisines centered around a starch like rice.  My thought is that moderns may tend to miss this point because we have so much better access to citrus fruits and other very high-quality C sources.

The bit about paprika having been introduced to Hungary by the Ottomans was also particularly interesting to me.  This was less than 30 years after they had reached the Old World.

Back in 1975, Fiat paid its workers enough to buy Gauguin paintings on auction.

At a lost-property auction in 1975, the unsuspecting Fiat worker paid 45,000 Italian lire (23 euros; £19) for them.

He hung them in his Turin home before taking them to Sicily when he retired.

The worker only grew suspicious about their origins when his son saw another Gauguin in a book and noticed similarities with the painting in his father's kitchen.

'Recreational litigation' is not just a conspiracy theory by sarcastic judges.  There are lawyers in Florida who specialise in recreational litigation, as well as other fun stuff to do while resorting to vacate.
