It is. *nod* But it's out of one of those fact books again, so I suppose there's a chance it's false, but I don't know how anyone would make that up.
-- What's your icon of?
sounds like the beginning of an edgar allan poe story
It does! It'd be a really interesting subject for a film, or story, I think.
That's what I've been telling people for years! ;) *on tiptoes to see over desk...*
Wow that's pretty cool. I wanna be a secret agent :(
I thought it was cool too. :) -- And woohoo for secret agents! I'm about the right height.
Reminds me of Inch High Private Eye...
That is so awesome...I can't help but think of mini me....lol
i love your eclectic information! you are a great researcher :)
Thanks!! :) I love lots of different subjects and have invested in lots of books for this journal and gleam most of my info from them.
Thats an intresting plan, because even if they did suspect what could they say? Mam im sorry im going to have to stop you that baby looks likes it's just a midget in disguse.
You Alwasy have intresting little tidbits for our minds
lol, I'm sure they never suspected. Babies can't be spies!
Glad you like! :)
Look up the French Revolution, silly. :) When do you think it was?

Its weird, but the upper classes and nobility in Europe had a thing for employing little people as servants. I don't know when it started, but it continued through the middle ages and apparently into the 1790's based on your post. Some palaces and buildings from the period even had quarters for them built to their scale.
Or at least that what a show I saw years ago on one of those "believe it or not" type programs said, but I couldn't find confirmation on google, so a grain of salt may be in order.
There was this from the BBC though:
I would LOVE to see pictures of their quarters, that's SO cool! Thanks for the info, darling. :) -- and WOW! I didn't know that about Egypt either!
Inch High Private Eye.....
Heh...One-inch Dick. Hehehe.
Thank you Harvey Birdman...
Wow, I'm really missing out on this Inch High Private Eye thing!
Okay, that's pretty damned cool.
But to think, I complain about my height! Wow.
I know. LOL. I complain about mine too, but at least I'm five feetish. Like.. my son's taller then this guy.
that's a really good idea....i wonder if it still goes on today?
Good question. I doubt there's a need in England, America, Australia, Canada etc, but perhaps in Baghdad?

It does indeed! Those whores!!! :) I love it. Thanks for the link!
that sounds like the amazing life of 1970's action star Weng Weng who toplined the James Bond clone For Your Height Only. he was a tiny secret agent who bit his enemies and romanced many a lovely lady. too too funny !! !!
