The weird origins of going to the beach [washingtonpost.com]

"But a deep cultural appreciation of the benefits of being at the beach really started in England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, largely because of medical prescriptions at the time. Many contemporary doctors believed that bathing in cold sea waves was beneficial for conditions they called "melancholy" and "spleen" - an excess of black bile that made people introverted, depressed, cautious or moody."

Probably from the category "things you never really thought about but are kinda interesting anyways".

I've been playing this game a couple of years ago and recently re-discovered it. It has a good amount of ads in it by now but still enjoyable if you want to kill a couple of spare minutes.
