Lenin (Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov) was actually entitled to be considered a minor noble in the Russian Empire... Why?

 

Well, his father (Ilya Ulianov) was a public servant in the region of Simbirsk (today it's called "Ulyanovsk"), who for his years of service earned the Order of St. Vladimir on the 3rd Degree... prior to 1900, all degrees of said order bestowed hereditary nobility, while after 1900, it was only from the 3rd...

The factory originally was not a house of manufacture (a manufactories in this case) but were houses of combined merchants or factors on foreign soil (in the case of European merchants operating over seas); the head of which were called the Chief Factor. The factory of old thus served not just as a glorified trading post but most often in the colonial sense were the seats of civil administration, warehousing, civil defense, maritime navigation coordination, market, and other similar functions.

Most people have a tendency to view things above and tilted at an angle, and rarely from above or straight ahead.

 

Reading from a computer screen instead of a book or even a Kindle is a bit more tiring because of how the light reflects to you when you read it. 

 

Your most vivid memories tend to be the ones that are the most incorrect.

New York State was ruled up until the mid-19th century as essentially a defacto feudal state under the patroons, a remnant of aristocratic Dutch rule that presided in the region since the Dutch colonized the region and established New Amsterdam.

 

The fall of the patroonships occurred when the tenant farmers of the massive estates basically rebelled and refused to pay their rent and formed political opposition in local government to the patroon families.

You can't plow a mare with ideas.

But ideas can make money and you can definitely plow as many mares as you want, if you have money.

Birds can't taste spicy food. The natural defenses of peppers are useless against them (and of limited usefulness against creatures that sometimes enjoy spiciness)!

The human body has some reflexes that, in a way, allow the spinal cord to briefly control a limb in lieu of the brain. It takes slightly longer for a message to reach the brain than it does for a message to reach the spinal cord; in case of an extreme emergency, time is of the essence, so basically your central nervous system buys you a tiny bit of time by stopping the message at your spine rather than your brain.

For example, if you reach out and touch a hot pan on a stove, once the pain signal has traveled up the nerves from your hand to your spine, your central nervous system automatically causes you to recoil.

This is why your doctor tests your reflexes by tapping you on the knee with a little mallet thingy--if something about the reflex is abnormal, that could be a sign of damage to the central nervous system.
