    Curiosity value...

    AD, because it was printed in 1632 and there was no CE then

    The whole list is very curious...

    I guess the teeth issue is some septic abscess that's out of control.

    Wolf. Can't get over that. I like wolves...

    It’s that special combination of cancer - and wolf that makes for an interesting death

    Chrisomes and infants 2268

    I'm wondering what a chrisome is, and all I can think of is possibly a baby or a young child which cried a lot because it was suffering from a serious disease and was in dreadful pain. Horrifying and very sad thought.

    Google suggests it's a baby under one month old.

    I was veering towards squashed by a planet. That would be a bad day.

    I assumed it must be a misspelling of something I wouldn't recognise so didn't actually google it. Oops.

    Desperately sad what life was like when unscientific attitudes still held us back almost entirely. At least the corner was about to be turned....

    Still some way to go, as we know.
