"The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop." - Mark Twain.

Did you know that the American author Mark Twain wrote under a nom de plume, or "pen name"? Samuel Langhorne Clemens, for that was his actual name, took the idea for his pen name from his early career as a riverboat pilot on the Mississippi River. The word "twain" meant "double" and "mark" meant a measurement. The riverboat call "mark twain" meant that the depth of the river at that point was two fathoms. But what's a fathom? A "fathom" is a measurement of six feet, so twice six would be twelve feet, which might be deep for a swimming pool, but is not at all very deep for a navigable river. More interestingly, fathoms are very old units of measurement and originally meant the distance the arms could spread, or the circumference enclosed by those arms. Now, isn't that fascinating? Mark Twain would probably approve.
