...the birth of skuldugery

This scribble, believe it or not, is inaccurate on a number of points :

1) It suggests that the patent system predates the discovery of fire. Historical records suggest his is not true.
2) Fire was in fact discovered as a 'spin off' effect of an experiment carried out by a one Proff' J.F.Winthorpe, Cavendish laboritories, Cambridge. England at 4.10pm, tea time, June 7th ,1936. The results of the original tests and a number of hampsters were lost in the conflagration.
3) It suggests that Plutos the Bubbleman was present to witness the momentous occation or that suficient language was inherrent within society ,as it was, to pass on the names and detailed specifics for future generations to report.
4) There is no record of that patent. (Although if anyone would like to cash in on the patent design rights to fire, Im sure you will make a mint. I suggest you might like to try and patent gravity at the same, time that would go down well.).

Sometimes , I reflect, then question parts of my own sanity.

Am I the only one to have these moments ?

No it's all true. Ug became so famous they named a floor at Peterborough John Lewis after him.

Check it out the next time you're there. UG, It's the one above LG.

(I don't know who LG was).
