Who you callin’ a Queen???…

Under the general heading of “too weird for words,” from Crikey Not Likely, BoHeMan Rhapsody:

As we re-gather our wits, we might stop to remember that celebrated span, The Tacoma Narrows Bridge, beloved of high school physics students around the world for its demonstration of the power of resonant waves; it collapsed on this date in 1940.

“Like a dog’s walking on his hind legs: it is not done well; but you are surprised to find it done at all.”

Apropos Dr. Johnson (as recounted in Boswell’s Life):  Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, played on antique computer peripherals:

As we try to remember our BASIC, we might wish a brooding Happy Birthday to Charlotte Bronte, author (as “Currer Bell”) of Jane Eyre; she was born on this date in 1816…  and was the only one of the three novelistic Bronte sisters to live past 31.
