Today's history nugget

Thought I think I should call this the Rasputin file.  My mother took Russian history when she was at University, she took so much they gave her a master's degree.  One of her prof's had actually met Rasputin.  He told the students that good old Grigori had bugs in his beard.  (Who is surprised?)  Something I never fail to remember when I hear of Rasputin.  And you note that is only three degrees of separation in time from Rasputin to me.  In any case I flipped open a book upon checking it in today and....did you know...Charles Darwin's dad was 6'2 and 336 lbs?
