Firefighters ante litteram by Eriin84 Firefighters ante litteram by Eriin84
My mom has the ability to find the most random facts around the internet.
And she always feels like sharing them, gods bless her.

Random info about me: whenever I read or hear the name "Middle Ages" or "Dark Ages", I think of Merlin in Disney's "The Sword in the Stone".
also, UNRELATED HATE, thanks so much Disney for not putting Whedon's commentary in The Avengers blu ray Europe release. I hate you with all my heart. Hatehatehatehateyou.

You think Salamanders had it bad? Do you know why the Black Death epidemic started? Because of Witch Hunts and killing the cats which kept the rat and mice population in check. Without cats the rats bred like rabbit and soon owned the place and spread the disease....
Sorry for sounding like your Mom ^^;

Those salamanders' descendants were lucky that someone invented water shortly after that.

E anche leggermente velenose, se wikipedia può essere creduta. Ma nulla di che, giusto un urticante per le mucose di occhi e bocca.

Salesman: Here is this salamander coat, made from real salamanders. So that mean's it's fireproof.

*coat catches on fire.*

Costumer: Ahhhh the coat is on fire.
Salesman: No it's not. Your eyes are playing tricks on you.

probabilmente le salamandre erano tacciate di stregoneria e quando le vedevano bruciare, pensavano "oh, sono delle salamandre cristiane, per questo bruciano...troviamo altre salamandre pagane!" e così via...

See fire and salamanders together just make me think of charmander, maybe that's where they got the idea from XD
(Damn it Pokemon, what are you doing in my brain, I told you to get out)

Hey random/interesting/useless trivia is always good to know, because it can be used on people when you run out of things to say
'...''...'
'Did you know people used to throw salamanders on fire to put them out' 'is that so?'

But seriously, that sounds preeeeeeetty stupid. I can imagine it happening
You think of the sword in the stone, I think of the black cauldron, even though it probably has nothing to do with that timeline.

yeah, that would be a great way of ending conversations. I bet that whoever you were talking to, they'd get away quietly and quickly after that.

Well people thought they were born from fire, since they would appear when one was started. In reality, they just liked to sleep in fallen logs.
