While we commonly think that Frankenstein is the main villain of the original novel, it isn't his true name. In the novel Frankenstein is the doctor's name, and he didn't give the monster any name. Making him more accurately Frankenstein's monster.

Florida to Become Two States?

You know sometimes Florida does so much weird stuff politically, you almost think they just want the attention. There's now a movement for the state to split, most likely being named North Florida and South Florida. It was even passed to a vote...by the city council of South Miami. Since they also need the approval of the State House and U.S. Congress I don't think it's going to work. Maybe when it snows in Orlando on a nice warm July day. 

Ratatouille (2007 Film) Review

 I really love Pixar, but I have to admit I don't really know why I haven't seen Ratatouille until now. It's been out for a long time, but I suppose the story of a mouse that cooks didn't sound too exciting. Boy was I wrong!

Fact of the Day: Lincoln Ghost

While stories of Lincoln's ghost in the White House have been numerous, there was even a story of a photo of his spirit. A man named William H. Mumler apparently took a picture of Mary Todd Lincoln with the ghost of her husband. However Mumler was quite well known for taking ghostly photos, but P.T. Barnum went after him and ruined his career after artificially making his own ghost pictures.

My Favorite Photos: Halloween Patriot
