In the early 1920s, a 5’ 4” woman in her 40s was incarcerated in Long Bay Gaol, New South Wales, Australia. A small woman, weighing around 126lb, and with the little finger of her right finger missing, Eugenia Falleni had just been found guilty of murder and sentenced to death. As shocking as the murder was, it was nothing compared to the revelation that Eugenia Falleni had been living for the past 40 years as a man. In the 1920s, this diminutive woman had committed a crime considered far worse than that of taking someone’s life – she had committed a crime against nature, the crime of believing she was a man trapped inside a woman’s body.
JSON and WiFi are two robot brothers who want to be nerdy just like their mother. In January of 2014, Lisa Seacat DeLuca ran a successfully funded Kickstarter campaign to produce her board book, a robot story, and animated eBook. The book teaches kids how to count to ten in binary. It uses different types of switches to represent the 1's and 0's of binary, the code used by computers to store and process information.

She never wanted a husband anyway.
But the major is equally determined that she break the engagement.
With both of them on their worst behavior, neither expects their fake betrothal to lead to love...

Jahnn selected the stories, originally appearing as exempla in his novels, for separate publication (13 nicht geheure Ge- schichten. Suhrkamp, 1967). They reflect his Weltanschauung of the harmonious universe in which man is part of an end chain, connected on the one hand to his ancestors who pass their deeds on through their works, and on the other to the future by means of the everlasting repetition of the process of nature.
To Jahnn the meaning of life was that there are no answers and that man is an unknown quantity. The tragic seriousness of life is not without hope, however, for man is a responsible being, and in this world in need of love and mercy he is the only one to provide uncondi- tional love. Jahnn's work has been considered to be a repetition, in modern dress, of certain aspects of the Gilgamesh epic; his motifs are drawn from it, his characters are archetypes.
