I agree! Conjures a whole story in one line (As does W v Arsenic--'disappointing'! /o\)

Woo! I like this. This list makes me want to know more. Like, what happened with Watson and arsenic?

1881 - getting to know one another is hard

Omg...what a lovely little fic! You had me at the third line, I giggled at the knowledge of poisons and laughed outright with the "Ability to swim – nil (Watson v Thames, 1883)" great work!
