is National Catfish Day in the United States. In proclaiming the day in 1987, Ronald Reagan said that "farm-raised catfish not only furnish American consumers with a tasty delicacy but also provide a nutritious, low-calorie source of protein that is also low in cholesterol."
Catfish are fine, but no match for people or bats.
Brilliant scholar, Elena Piscopia was awarded a doctor of philosophy degree at the University of Padua on this day in 1678, the first female to achieve this honour.
Ms Piscopia is credited with a range of key contributions to the philosophical canon that have endured through the ages, including “Do what you want. You will anyway," “I hope someday you have children just like you,” “I don’t care what your friend’s parents do, when you’re living in my house you obey my rules,”and the immortal, “It’s all fun and games until someone puts an eye out.”
