H.G. Well is considered the father of science-fiction with his many novels. He knew actual science quite well too, as he spent some of his career teaching it. When he was a student, one of his professors was Thomas Henry Huxley, one of the 19th century's most respected biologists.

I usually don't watch TV shows when they're new, but when I was watching the first half of the fourth season of Once Upon a Time, I had heard about Galavant. It served as a show to take the place of Once Upon a Time for the winter break. It looked promising especially as the comedy part of this musical.

As I mentioned before, I mostly self-taught myself to ride a bicycle. That certainly came with success and failure. The road that leads to my house is on a bit of a hill, so I got over-confident in my early days. In a rush and panic, I wasn't able to get the brakes to work to stop in time. So when I rode, I hit our storage building but in a rather comical way. I didn't get seriously injured, but walking back to the house was rather uncomfortable.
