Did he write the Cardinal Rules of French?

Could there be a Cardinal Richelieu II? Or perhaps, is the reason they need to be chaste. Only if the Pope is chosen from a cardinal why do they change their names and put a number at the end. So mabye Pope Francis, fine but shouldn't it have been Ordinal Benedict XVI?

I don't get religion at all.

No, he played for the Cardinals. The 2012 season, I think. But his OBP was pretty awful, so I believe he was sent down to the farm league at the end of the season. That or he became pope, I can't remember.

As you brought it up, if you play for the Cardinals, how do you play first, second, or third?

It took my a bit but I see what you did there. You "Practice, practice, practice" was an allusion to the Pope on First, Saint Peter Lewis Cardinal. I may be slow, but I catch on. I can learn things.

The French Academy is *way* behind in their official dictionary of French. The latest edition is the 9th, begun in the 1980s, and as of 2011 they're only up to the letter Q.

French speakers (aside from hidebound conservatives) happily ignore the Academy's prescriptivism as they always have.

Oldest fish. 112 years old.

https://www.nationalgeographic.co.uk/an ... ity-record
A new study using bomb radiocarbon dating describes a bigmouth buffalo that lived to a whopping 112 years, crushing the previous known maximum age for the species—26—by more than fourfold.
According to radiocarbon dating, when the bigmouth buffalo was born, World War I had not yet broken out in Europe. This makes it the oldest-known freshwater fish on Earth.

Not fish, but Greenland Sharks live a very long time.

This one, caught recently, might be older than the Protestant Reformation, making it the oldest vertebrate.

Of course they are. Don't know what my brain was thinking there, but I *had* had three beers.

I think somewhere in the past I got it into my head that sharks' long-term evolutionary stability has made them a radically different category from most other fish species.
