One of the deadliest weapons of the nineteenth century was the derringer, a small pistol with one or two barrels, which could easily be hidden in the hand and used with deadly surprise. It was the weapon with which John Wilkes Booth killed President Abraham Lincoln. In 1890, a small, flat, rotary-disk magazine, seven-shot derringer pistol, using .32 caliber extra short center-fire or 32-rim-fire extra-short cartridges, was developed. Named “The Protector,” it was manufactured and sold by several companies for about 20 years. Gangsters loved the weapon, as it provided a surprise to an unsuspecting mobster or policeman. It was easily completely hidden in the hand. The barrel was only 1 5/8 inches long. When used, the barrel could be extended between the third and fourth fingers, and seven shots could be quickly fired. The low velocity, inaccurate bullet was lethal at close range. The gun became known as the “Chicago Palm Pistol,” because of it’s manufacturing markings and use by Chicago mobsters. Like most derringers, it was favoured by gamblers, who could easily hide the weapon up their sleeve.

You may or may not be familiar with the font Comic Sans. What you may not be familiar with are some facts about this oh-so-hated font that make it so useful for students with visual learning disabilities such as dyslexia.
Comic Sans was originally created to be used in the small speech bubbles in comic books, thus the name ‘Comic’ Sans. After its creation, a lot of businesses began using this font for serious reasons, which made the serious things look a lot less serious.
The reason this font is so useful for students with dyslexia is it’s heavy bottom and the differentiation between letters, lessening the chances of flipping.
Many smart phones give the option to change the font the phone uses, and one of the fonts is very similar to Comic Sans.
If Comic Sans is not to your liking, or simply doesn’t work for you, there are a number of other fonts that are “dyslexia approved” and are preloaded onto every computer. [Here] is a link to a list of other fonts that reduce flipping.
And here they are:
Thermoception: Ability to sense heat and cold. Thermoceptors in the brain are used for monitoring internal body temperature.
Proprioception: The sense of where your body parts are located relevant to each other.
Chronoception: Sense of the passing of time. Your body has an internal clock.
Equilibrioception: The sense that allows you to keep your balance and sense body movement in terms of acceleration and directional changes.
Magentoception: This is the ability to detect magnetic fields. Unlike most birds, humans do not have a strong magentoception, however, experiments have demonstrated that we do tend to have some sense of magnetic fields.
Tension Sensors: These are found in such places as your muscles and allow the brain the ability to monitor muscle tension.
Nociception: In a word, pain. This was once thought to simply be the result of overloading other senses, such as “touch”, but it has it’s own unique sensory system. There are three distinct types of pain receptors: cutaneous (skin), somatic (bones and joints), and visceral (body organs).

"I thought I was doing a rather decent job keeping up…", Johnny moaned and craned his neck as her lips found it. A hand gripped her dark, red hair, grasping it tight, holding her close, encouraging her. His free hand slid around her waist, down to her jean shorts, where he gave her backside a hard squeeze. "Raven…"
Her tongue ran over his flesh repeatedly while her lips never dared to separate from his neck. Raven’s eyes were now narrow, yellow slits as she broke apart from his neck to look up at him, raising a thin red brow at him. Chuckling quietly, her hand ran up his thigh only to stop between his legs and practically grab him through his jeans. She studied his face for a reaction that would please her while she brought her lips back to his, hand rubbing along his jeans shamelessly.
”For someone of your… specifics, so
would I. Nevertheless, call me Catwoman.”
( she raised her brow.
she wasn’t daft. )
“I’ve heard about you.
Call me Mystique.”
“How do you think I feel.
I haven’t been dating
Rogue fo’ ages an’ yet
we’ve crossed paths. My
current partner is off limits
by th’ way, jus’ so you know.”
”Do I even want to know
who your current partner
is? ( a slight pause )
Okay, I’m curious now.”
"No I am not."
“Where are you from?
The name’s Mystique.”
