    Hanachan and I have a light difference of opinions. It seems eveyone but I knows without googling it which disease John Snow discovered the cause and prevention for (not white walking or wtvr lol). You also know what TMJ stands for, and should thus know that not only ants have special bitey apparatus. Sooo....let the poll begin!

    Will we ever get closure on this mystery?

    I mean I could look it up myself, but that would ruin the mystery!

    Well, I think it's pretty safe to say that I am the victor in this debate.

    The answers to the best of my ability are...
    John Snow discovered how to prevent some disease or other by boiling water before drinking it.
    TMJ stands for Too Many Jesuses. Or perhaps *something* Mandible Jaw.

    I was in History earlier this week and supposedly he stopped a case of cholera or something that broke out in Soho during the Industrial Revolution. Probably a different John Snow but it’s my best guess ::gaku::

    Nah, that was him. He stopped the cholera outbreak by identifying a contaminated well (by plotting the cases on a map) and taking off the handle. See, it's a famous thing they teach in schools!
    He also researched anesthesia and personally administered chloroform to Queen Victoria for some of her many births.
