Charles Ruttheimer III, King of England?

Only 383 years ago today, Charles I became King of England. What if, thanks to a time machine . . . no, let's not go there. Sorry. Today is also the 214th birthday of the U.S. Navy and the 45th birthday of Quentin Tarantino. One of Tarantino's movies had a significant impact on a recent Daria fanfic.

Oh, and the supersonic Concorde, beloved of Sandi Griffin, would have been 38 today if they hadn't stopped flying it.

Let's see what the Internet-with-a-capital-I has to show us today. . . .

* With a capital I.

Daria Morgendorffer, Starfleet Captain? Wow, the things you learn online. She sure looks different without her glasses.

Unbeknownst to most of us, the San Francisco Chronicle once named Daria one of TV's best "teen smarty cynics." That was nice. Amazing how popular she became despite her best efforts to avoid it.

A few days ago I made a snide comment about using the Internet to date Daria nerds. Well, it appears you can really do that after all. What will they think of next?

Yearning for some Daria/Thundercats crossover fanfic? Yearn no more! Click here.

Whatever became of the guy who voiced Jake Morgendorffer? Perhaps this webpage will solve the mystery. More power to you, dude, and good luck with that.

Finally, thanks to students in Marshfield, Wisconsin, Daria Morgendorffer and family are able to explain the U.S. Constitution to you. That's a report to which I would have given extra credit, for sure, or rather I would have if they hadn't spelled "Constitution" as "consfghsfdgsdtitution." That's supposed to be a capital C there: "Consfghsfdgsdtitution." Kids these days.

That's a lower case i for "internet".

If the Chicago Manual of Style, which was written by God Himself, says Internet has a capital I, then to say otherwise is not only heresy but blasphemy. Go, and sin no more.
