Love the ladder! You could turn it into little book shelves!

My favorite non-rolling tiny house.

Written by Johann David Wyss and edited by his son Johann Rudolf Wyss, Der Schweizerische Robinson was first published in 1812.  The Swiss Family Robinson was translated into French in 1813 by Isabelle de Montolieu and later into English by William Godwin in 1816.  Similarly to other nineteenth-century children’s books, the adventures of the Swiss family were meant to teach moral lessons and in this case some natural history as well.  The family’s last name is not actually Robinson.  Robinson was added to the title based on the story’s inspiration—Robinson Crusoe.

Unlike the 1960 Disney adaptation, in the book the family is headed to Australia when they are shipwrecked. There are four sons not three, Jack the third son didn’t make it into the film, and no pirates troubling them either.  Just a few more bears and other large game to contend with.

The thing about moving days is that I have to actively try to not panic.

Two scientists walk into a bar:

"I’ll have an H2O."

"I’ll have an H2O, too."

The bartender gives them both water because he is able to distinguish the boundary tones that dictate the grammatical function of homonyms in coda position as well as pragmatic context.

Favorite joke, favorite counter-joke.

One of the first jokes I ever remember hearing, and still one of the best.
