A little more than a century before our days, there appeared a remarkable little volume called 'The History of Creation, as related in the Old Testament, with an Account of the Creation ofAngels and Men.' In a few short pages we learn that, after a certain period since the Lord created the universe and all contained in it, the angels departed from their own world to inhabit the regions about it, and to dwell among the beings who lived on its banks. The angels, having no bodies, and being therefore in some respects less happy than the inhabitants of their new home, wished for bodies like theirs, and these were made out of clay.
Each angel body was created by fashioning pure ether through anincantation of words in the sacred tongue. Sadly, in the only surviving copy of the volume, these words were scrawled out and were overwritten by this list of fifteen facts:
Antarctica has the lowest infant mortality of any continent.
Plastic flamingos outnumber the real thing.
