...That we know of/can prove. 



I just need to add enough bourbon.

Sigh.  A pity this solution isn't more applicable to other situations as well.

I have yet to find a problem that solution doesn't work on.

I worked on that spreadsheet for hours yesterday.  I managed to cut the events down to about 3000 that I had some interest in.  I've got a lot more cutting to do.

I think I'll be able to play nonstop Call of Cthulhu the entire week if I choose!
