What were electric eels called before electricity was discovered ?

    Here's a good answer from Quora:

    https://www.quora.com/What-did-they-call-the-electric-eel-before-electricity-was-invented

    In short, electricity has been known since antiquity, and the electric eel wasn't named by Europeans until the 1760s, around the time Ben Franklin was experimenting with electricity.

    I believe they were referred to as torpedoes. Albeit, nowadays that term seems reserved for electric rays.

    Then again, further reading shows that the electric eel was limited to South America, then any mention pre-1760s of torpedoes would have been referencing electric rays.

In response to rumors: the only heart-shaped Valentine's food I have made in 30 years was creme brulee, but for that I regret nothing. NOTHING!

Water pipe burst on 7th floor flooding out Wing 2 of my office. Ah, the joys of working in a building over 100 years old.

    After allowing sufficient time to dry out, and a delay in awarding the contract, work began last week to repair the damage.

    So, they finished with the repairs today. Hooray. Then we had a fire in another part of the building. OY VEY.

    wth G...lol Do you work on the 13th fl? ;)

    Well, look at the bright side. The flooding and/or fire did not take out the building all together. That's the mark of quality there.

    Well, I'm glad the kidney infection is gone at least. Are you feeling any better?

    Much, thank you. They're also treating me for HBP. It's under control now too.

    Just have them monitor your kidney function. The drug reps love to call Lisinopril the "kidney protective" option -- and it is, for *diabetics*, but not necessarily everyone else. Not that it's bad: I let my mom take it.

    I went from needing to reserve my workspace every day I came into the office (5 days/week) to having a workspace assigned to me.
