No two ears are alike -- an astounding fact considering the 10 billion-plus human ears that have graced the Earth. Not even your own ears are identical. Ears are, in fact, the most reliable distinguishing identifier between identical twins, chimps and apes.... CONTINUED

Stimes Addisson

Addisson was born to an eccentric but prosperous haberdasher and his wife in Akron, Ohio, on a day so sweltering it was almost cancelled.

The League of Men with Fancy Gloves

Easily the most understood of groups secreting themselves away from direct observation, the League fashions itself after Minoan Craft Ritual, Fornication Timetables and late-style arithmetical pant-fashions -- at least in so much as the latter represents a conquering fashion, a being made of spaces between fingers five -- and in that failure is a layer of experience, as the Hand too removes sensation....
