Various references I use & cite will be put here simply because there may not be enough info or it may be TMI to put on a sidebar link. I’m probably going to hold off on posting some in-text links that don’t seem super relevant (ex. the wikipedia article about bidets isn’t here, neither is the links to some movies on IMDB.com.)
Note: As of April 10, 2010, this references page is in desperate need of updating. Some of these can go and others need to be added in asap. I am aware of this.
