Drat. I’ll have to listen to the whole 12-hour set of “War of the Roses” lectures again, because I’ve forgotten, like, *everything,* and it’s only been a couple of months!

Horribly complicated war! But in the end it’s just two families slaughtering each other to get the crown (or really, the lands that come with it).

Oh, I never forget anything from history.

For example, as soon as I saw “War of the Roses” I recalled all about the rose bulb bubble and that it was called a war because the big Byzantine banking houses were using unscrupulous Austrian accountants to try to gain control of the rose bulb market in Hungary.

If John Henry hadn't stopped the panic by impaling Turks who tried to board trains in Italy, we'd all be speaking Byzantine today.

I did forget the name of the memory course I took, though, but when I think of it I'll let you know.
