Farkologists spend their whole life searching for working hotlinks to the buckets of the pseudo religious figure "Gorgor" who may or may not have been a real person.

Hoban Washburne: insertdip: Anyone interested in historical treatment of children should take a listen to hardcore history's episode Suffer the Children. Fascinating and incredibly brutal.
