I ran across a couple of things yesterday that brought on the expression that is in the heading. The first is a website that is currently in beta testing. It is called Bedpost. It is for keeping track of how active your love life is. You put in when you started, how long it lasted, who with, rate it, and enter a short description. If you have seen the Austin Powers movies, this is where Dr Evil would utter his line "Right." Why you need to keep track of that is beyond me. To make it even more interesting,(or disgusting, depending on your point of view) you can put this on Twitter. I don't have a twitter account, but even if I did this would not be on it. People really are amazing.

The second thing is a new movie that is going to be made. It is a period piece based on Jane Austin's Pride And Prejudice. I know, they did a version of that in 2005 that is highly rated on IMDB. But that version could be considered a chick flick. So what do you need to do to bring the guys in? Add a Predator, of course. The movie is being called Pride And Predator. The executive producer is Elton John. They start filming later this year. I think I'll pass.
A new reader, Al got it right. (Hi Al and welcome.) The Ganges River is in India.

Today's question is Grade 4/World History.

What is the name for the terrible disease that killed one-third of the population of Europe in the late 1340's?

I knew this one. 31-10.
