Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
In Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, Mr. Bumble gave their orphan foundlings surnames in alphabetical order. Mr. Bumble proudly exclaimed:
The last was a S,–Swubble, I named him. This was a T,–Twist, I named him. The next one comes will be Unwin, and the next Vilkins. I have got names ready made to the end of the alphabet, and all the way through it again, when we come to Z.’
