ESSENTIAL ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY by Isaac Boyles - I have got to find a copy of this...the author has a catchy name. Just to gently correct a friend of mine, here, here, and here are some links to various information resources about genetic abnmrmalities, specifically dealing with people who have additional X or Y chromosomes...many of whom appear to be perfectly normal except for increased height and some few learning disabilities. Also, here are some more details on various genetic ailments and "unusualities", a word I just made up. Tempted as I am to make insensitive jokes, this resource site for people who have the various forms of dwarfism is very nice C and I can't bring myself to be an ass about it. Besides, us short people got to stick together, no matter how much shorter than myself they may be. If your genetic anomaly is so rare it doesn't have its own site, you can go here or here for support, information, and networking. Reminds me of a friend of mine that has Tourette's, Obsessive-Cempulsive Disorder, ADHD, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder, which basically turns people that have it into a friend of mine's ex-girlfriend. These people will argue with you that the sky is plaid, vehemently and with venom, because they...jut...argue.
