Did you know...
... that today is the birthday of Roget's Thesaurus? In 1852, Peter Roget published the first edition of his thesaurus.

Trivia fans: Roget's general inquisitiveness and his Victorian faith in social and personal improvement led him to publish learned articles on sewer sanitation, magnetism, bees, geology, and how the knight might be moved to every square on the chessboard.
