What Dumpling Learned Today, #1

Today, I learned that Scots no longer lay boys down on stones that mark boundaries and whip them, in order for them to be sufficiently traumatised by the event that they will memorise the position of the stones for the rest of their lives.

It appears that the development of fencing in the eighteenth century is wonderful in many, many ways.
And generations of boys must be truly grateful for this.
