Corrigendopedia's first internally-linked page!

You know how some internet pages have a list of links that correspond to items lower down on that page? I've always wondered how to do that, and it turns out it isn't so difficult! You just use a 'name' tag (really!) and then create a link to that 'name'. I learned it here.

I have used it on the Animals and Vestibules (trivia investigation page), which was really long in its enthusiastic, detailed explanations. Now, you can click on each individual title and it takes you to that item, without having to scroll down and find it!

Animules and Vestibules -- the real facts, and more!

I've finally completed the Animules and Vestibules section of the page Fast Facts and Trivia: Is any of it true?

I think I've done a decent job taking a handful of 'factoids' and actually finding the 'real story' in great detail, all while demonstrating how I've done it. My only hope now is that others find it just as fascinating as I do!

The 'deleted' article finally making a comeback!

I've been slowly re-writing the article that was completely deleted (Internet Trivia: How much of it is even true?), and now it is about 1/3 finished. Since I'm re-writing it with a main page linked to different 'sections', I figured that was far enough along to publish the main page, along with the ostrich, once again:

The new title is Fast Facts and Trivia: Is any of it true? Some of it is, of course, but what? That is what I'm investigating! The first section of trivia I will be publishing is about plants and animals, which I whimsically named Animules and Vestibules. It's coming up soon.

At last! My first new article completed (HEY! WHERE DID IT GO?)

It's been tough, as I've been busy... also, Johnny's been getting worse. Yesterday, Lucas forced him to admit that he owes Lucas money, so today he stole Lucas' truck keys! Yes, that's right! While I was here in my office, I heard Johnny leave his bedroom, go into ours for a second, then slam the door really fast so that my coat fell off it, and hurry out of the house!
` Will Lucas ever find them? And what will Lucas do to Johnny when he comes back? Tune in next time to Spoony's Crazy Life!

Similarly crazy is the article I've written about... all sorts of things. It started out as mainly concerning the myth that harvestmen are venomous, but... well... it's now similarly packed with human drama!

OMG! MORE DRAMA! I've just discovered that I 'dumped' my final edit of this article!


It's now eight o'clock, two hours after starting this blog post, and I've finally managed to do a rough reconstruction of the finely-polished work I had done. It's not only a drag, but my sense of satisfaction is gone. Plus, I could have been back from the gym and have finished my last English assignment by now!
` Anyway, I guess I'll sort it out some more later. Here's the link to it.

In other news, Lucas managed to call Johnny, who denied stealing the keys, then called Lucas back to ask, "Have you found them yet? Huh? Huh?" It was pretty obvious that Johnny had just hid them somewhere, and sure enough, Lucas found them right away, underneath my car.
` He knew they would be somewhere around there, because Johnny had run through the carport on his way out, which Lucas had thought was odd.

Anyway, I can finally, FINALLY update the Corrigendopedia, like I was ABOUT TO when I started writing this. Man, I can't believe I DUMPED the page after I was completely done with it! How is that even possible?
` You know, I actually think a reasonable possibility is the distraction of Lucas running around, looking for his car keys, wondering if he should call the police for grand theft auto, etc.

P.S. Also, the gym was about to close by the time I got to it. ARGH AGAIN! However, I've since drastically improved my article anyway, so pttthhhbtbtbt!
