Some facts just stick with you. I'll never forget a comment one reader, ecuadoriana —a collector of pre-20th century medical journals—left on a post I wrote about paper clutter last year. Apparently hemorrhoids, some time around the late 1800's, used to be called "piles," and ecuadoriana had formed a lasting mental connection.
