Well, clearly it's also the mark of being German or Norwegian. Everyone who doesn't have a moustache is the exception that proves the rule.

Flawless logic, Gareth. And what about people who have a moustache on their chin? (thank you Dudley).

Fancy missing George Orwell on the 25th - his 1984 appears to be the required handbook for the security agencies around the world including our own!

Emily Jane Brontė was born on this day 195 years ago.

Her one novel splits opinion sharply, and I get the impression it's not particularly well-liked round these parts. Personally, I love it: I think it an astounding feat of the imagination, and executed with a bold panache.

Happy birthday, Emily!
