Does This Event Exist?

Post by Teawizard » May 1st, 2011, 3:29 pm

Ichthyology or something like it? Has anything like herbology existed?
If a tomato is a fruit, isn't ketchup a smoothie?
If time was frozen and then unfrozen, how long was it frozen for?
How come it is called the Secret Service if everyone knows about it?

I'm pretty sure there has never been either of those events. Although ichthyology or something to do with marine life (or just marine invertebrates) would be great.

Both would be rather pleasant. Maybe even a Mycology event.

You have never experienced the majesty of an ID event - who wouldn't want to identify mushrooms?
