The Unfact™ of the Month

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

Because of weight considerations the first balloon the Montgolfier brothers launched was to be crewed by Jacques-Étienne’s six year old son, Faucon Montgolfier, but the frightened boy hid in a stable loft and the balloon was launched without him.

See what’ll happen if we let ’em vote?!

Ebook update. The Revolt of Man by Walter Besant – Written in 1882, The Revolt of Man takes place in a future England (much like Victorian England) after the Great Transition; a new religion has been founded, the monarchy abolished, and women rule over men. But this unnatural order cannot last and finally the men, led by the rightful heir to the throne, revolt! That’s why it’s called The Revolt of Man.

The timing of this addition to the Mala Fide eLibrary has got nothing to do with birthing, truthing, or death panels. Nothing at all.

"It is because the natural order has been reversed; the sex which should command and create is compelled to work in blind obedience."

Longview

From Wikipedia's List of Greek Phrases.

Ῥοδοδάκτυλος Ἠώς (Rhododaktylos Ēōs) – "Rosy-fingered dawn" occurs frequently in the Homeric poems referring to Ēōs, the Titanic goddess of the dawn, who, with “rosy fingers”, opened the gates of Olympus so that Apollo could ride his chariot across the sky.

Heh…rosy fingers…Homeric…Titanic…gates…ride his chariot.
