Dead People Follow Me, and They Talk to Me

Yes, they talk to me. Really. Lewis and Clark.

Am I mad?

You decide.

lewis and clark

Yes, People. Meriwether Lewis and William Clark have Twitter accounts. If you’re not familiar with Lewis-and-Clark-Speak, I told them to have lots of sex over the weekend.

They favorited my message.

Because.

Well.

They liked getting busy with the Natives, after all.

Here’s to a week full of the business.

For Lewis and Clark.

And for all of us.

TODAY’S MERIWETHER LEWIS BIRTHDAY MONTH TRIVIA QUESTION:

WHO WAS WILLIAM CLARK’S COMMANDING OFFICER WHEN CLARK MET LEWIS?

Answer to yesterday’s Meriwether Lewis Birthday Month Trivia Question: LEWIS AND CLARK OBSERVED WHAT ANCIENT GEOLOGICAL CONDITION IN THEIR EXPLORATION OF THE EASTERN COLUMBIA PLATEAU?

ANSWER: FLOODING FROM ANCIENT GLOBAL WARMING. From the Idaho border to the entrance to the Columbia River Gorge, ancient glacial melt stripped and abraded the volcanic landscape. Many basalt formations noted by Lewis and Clark can still be seen today along the Snake and Upper Columbia.

    Have you been alone in the mountains too long? Or maybe not long enough. Get back to work on that memoir book and quit playing on Twitter.

    Oh, and his commander? Captain Jack Harkness. (Look it up.)

  2. You’re not mad, but maybe obsessed! I love it when I become obsessed with a piece of research and the central characters or figures speak to me, however your dedication outstrips any I’ve known. I, too, have quite a week preceded by an even bigger week and looking ahead to the rest of August there is little relief, but at least I don’t have time to complain about anything. 🙂 Have a wonderful week yourself. oxo

    I seriously love learning all these obscure facts about these Merry. He’s so interesting and by extension so are you my friend, so are you. 😉

  7. God help me, I DON’T want a Twitter account….I can’t keep up with “stuff” now!

    You know, of course, that I mentioned to you last week the little factoid I had discovered: Lewis was serving in a sublegion under General “Mad Anthony” Wayne (that’s where the madness lies) an historically significant figure in my current neck of the woods, and that’s when he met Clark, his immediate commanding officer.

    Funny

    When I went to wash DC last year with the family I tweeted about some dead presidents and founding fathers and some tweeted back. My kids loved it
