Now this story might be more suited to Ripley's Believe It or Not than my blog.
I came across this wonderful story on the Kircher Society's website [via and via] of Robert Shields, a man who kept a diary for twenty years detailing every single thing that happened to him in entries written at five minute intervals. (A sample page of his diary can be found here, and the scary thing is how riveting it is!)
It is, of course, the longest diary in the world, and Shields has give the diary to Washington State University Library along with a $100,000 charitable trust to ensure that it will be cared for.
There is much such bizarro stuff on the Kircher Society's blog, I know I'm going to be wasting a lot of time there!
