Edmund Fitzgerald is something I am working on and happens to be kinda important to me. Expect great things from Edmund Fitzgerald eventually.
Other stuff I have on the back burner for now:

Leidenfrost Effect | Euler's Disk | Fencing Response | Garry Hoy | Roko's Basilisk | The Madness of Mission Six | Best Bond Girl Names
Ones that I need to make a page for soon: academic dueling scars | Tom Lehrer's songs | Norma McCovey | Margaret Sanger | Bill Kaysing | 100 Prisoners Escape Puzzle | Wagon-wheel effect

Ones that I have started: Edmund Fitzgerald | Pickled Garlic | The Tennis Racket

I firmly believe he thought that ship was gonna get him through

--Captain Bernie Cooper, commander of the Arthur Anderson as she followed and provided piloting assistance to the ill-fated Edmund Fitzgerald.[1][2]



I was 7 or 8 years old when I first heard the song "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot.

My older brother happened to have incredible musical taste and he happened to be twenty years older than me. He was already in college, had a few cars, had a few girlfriends, and had a really cool stereo system in his really cool basement room that he had built himself. He was the one I looked up to, and the guy I learned the most from.

And he loved Gordon Lightfoot.
