Another Jonathan

This is probably, at the moment, too tenuous to count as an annotation so it's going here for discussion. I read a synopsis of the film Arsenic and Old Lace and noted that the sociopathically inclined villain, who delivers death usually by poisoning, is called Jonathan. Mortimer and not Teatime, but interesting. I really weant to see the movie to see if anything about Mortimer, J., chime with our Teatime, J. He beleives if he is part of a family with an insane streak, he may as well embrace it, celebrate it and run at it good and hard. "Insanity doesn't so much run in my family as gallop!"

Loose end

"This is very similar to the suggestion put forward by the Quirmian philosopher Ventre..." What is? --Old Dickens (talk) 03:13, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Not sure now, not directly relevant. The relevant part is the suggestion itself. Let me go back and re-investigate. --Lias Bluestone (talk) 07:21, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Square root of 27.4

As a lector of the French translation, I was surprised by the reference to the square root of 27.4 which is not specific. But 27.04 is a perfect square. I first though of an error in translation, but no... Could this be an error of PT himself or of his publisher? Or a second degree joke? --Rouletabille (talk) 15:25, 30 July 2021 (UTC)
