Reasons to get up today

  • Who is killing the great theatrical names of Europe? Added to the Best Month Ever for deadpoolers are Michel Serrault (probably best known for the role in "La Cage Aux Folles" reprised by Nathan Lane in "The Birdcage"), Michaelangelo Antonioni (who made "Blow Up" which is a good movie and was referenced by Monty Python a bunch of times, and Mike Reid (Frank Butcher in "Eastenders", but maybe easily remembered as Doug The Head in "Snatch"). So if you're Molly Sugden, Tom Stoppard or Christopher Lee, get up now, they're coming for you.
  • Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts had a seizure. Turnaround is fair play, since I shudder every time I hear "Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts"
  • There was a new puzzle supplement with the London Times on Sunday. It's downloadable in a practically unprintable .pdf format here, I extracted the puzzles as individual files if anyone is interested.
  • The first U.S. Patent was issued on this day in 1790
