True or false?
"he was very small. i'm not entirely sure whether he was technically a dwarf"
but that was a convoluted way of saying "true"
"From early childhood he suffered numerous health problems, including Pott's disease (a form of tuberculosis affecting the spine) which deformed his body and stunted his growth, no doubt helping to end his life at the relatively young age of 56 in 1744. He never grew beyond 1.37 m (4 ft., 6 in.)."
Also, i heart that quote of his, about Eternal Sunshine of the Spotlessmind, what the film is from, that i discovered through the film. it sounds SO MODERN
"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd"
why did you ask?
the 'dwarf porn' thread triggered some vague memory but then I thought it could've been a dream or something. That would've been an odd dream.
