14.  dead souls- nikolai gogol- when serfdom was in style in russia, a landowner would be taxed on how many serfs (souls) he had under his dominion. until the next census was drawn, a landowner would still be taxed on his deceased serfs. gogol's hero would purchase the dead souls thereby relieving the landowners of the hardship and on paper would appear to be quite prosperous. then he would mortgage his serfs for ready money.  gogol's hero, was a bit of a rogue

he finished the novel, but burned the last part, but it's been held up as complete. the version i have (which i assume is alike most of the others) has a completed version from some second rate author. anyway, it's a satire on russian nobility and which stunned me was that there was humor

Why was there never any outrage over the fact that Little Twin Stars are neither stars nor twins?

So glad the Hello Kitty Question has been answered.

Had to look that one up.  So Hello Kitty is not a cat?  She's a little girl?  Do many little girls have cat ears and whiskers in Japan?

I suppose they're going to tell us next that Badtz Maru is not a penguin?

When I was visiting China, we stopped at a town on the outskirts of Guangzhou and saw a Hello Kitty Cafe. I was confused as to why the whole thing was decked out in Union Flags, Big Bens and other London icons - had no idea Hello Kitty was supposed to be British, let alone not a cat.
