Why the Tomato Was Feared in Europe for More Than 200 Years | Arts & Culture | Smithsonian
"A nickname for the fruit was the “poison apple” because it was thought that aristocrats got sick and died after eating them, but the truth of the matter was that wealthy Europeans used pewter plates, which were high in lead content. Because tomatoes are so high in acidity, when placed on this particular tableware, the fruit would leach lead from the plate, resulting in many deaths from lead poisoning. No one made this connection between plate and poison at the time; the tomato was picked as the culprit. " - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Aha. I always wondered why they thought tomatoes were poisonous. Thanks. - bentley

Dancing Plague of 1518 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, Alsace (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, some of those affected died of heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"The outbreak began in July 1518, when a woman, Frau Troffea, began to dance fervently in a street in Strasbourg. This lasted somewhere between four to six days. Within a week, 34 others had joined, and within a month, there were around 400 dancers. Some of these people eventually died from heart attacks, strokes, or exhaustion." - Amit Patel

BTW, pretty sure I'll be back in Toronto for the ICANN meeting there in Sept. I love DNS as much as I love RSS, maybe even more.
