From Mental Floss's Twitter feed:

John Tyler, who became President in 1841, has two living grandchildren. Not great-great-great-grandchildren. Their dad was Tyler's son

More Details: Lyon Gardiner Tyler, one of Tyler's 15 kids, was born in 1853. He fathered Lyon Jr. (1924) and Harrison Ruffin (1928).

From me and my calculator:

Lyon Jr. is 88; his dad was 71 when he was born.
Harrison Ruffin is 84; Dad was 75 when he was born.

What's even freakier? The grandchildren of a guy who was President in 1841 are YOUNGER than my grandmother who was born in 1914. She was 10 and 14 when they were born.

Wild.

Ok, I signed up for [community profile] casestory and I get that casefic is pretty much the fannish term for 'mystery story' but...are there any other nuances that I should be aware of? Like, at [community profile] casestory, the first rule is:

Stories should be focused on a case/crime investigation/crime. Medical cases or other themes are also allowed as long as there is a case somehow involved.

And what I'm wondering is, what does 'other theme' mean/how could it be construed?

What I'm hoping is that the mystery in casefic doesn't have to be a murder, 'cause I love me some crime shows but murders are getting old, y'all.
