  • Gabriele: “Inconciliabile con la fisiologia e la psicologia femminile il genio è soltanto maschio” Lei è d’accordo?
  • Antonietta: …Certo che sono d’accordo, perché?
  • Gabriele:
  • Antonietta: Sono sempre gli uomini che riempiono i libri di storia, no?
  • Gabriele: Sì, sì… forse anche troppo… Così non c’è più spazio per nessuno e tanto meno per le donne.

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


Cool!
