March 2013 Random Thread: Arsenic and Old Emperors
Continuing our remembrance of favorite Muse issues and articles past, the GAPAs dedicate the March random thread to “The Murder (Maybe) of Napoleon” — blurbed as “Was Napoleon Killed by His Wallpaper?” on the cover of the January 2003 issue. The nautical-themed number also included articles about shipworms and Captain Kidd, step-by-step instructions on how to plunder a galleon, and a chapter from Hornblower and the “Atropos”, the fifth book in C. S. Forester’s celebrated Horatio Hornblower saga. In a landlubberly aside, Ivars Peterson’s Math Page gave tips on winning at Monopoly. A fine issue indeed, me hearties!
Ideas for future random threads are still welcome.
