Neil Turner's Blog

Blogging about technology and randomness since 2002

Only Arthur Arse

GeoURL is back up, and now my nearest neighbour is Although his blog hasn’t been updated in a while, he does have quite an interesting post about the UK 1901 census.
Remember how as a kid you used to look up rude words in the dictionary? Well, Dave has looked up some of these words in the census, and has found several people with names such as Arthur Arse, Alice Turd and Samuel Pants, to name a few. The article also got featured in The Register.
Note: the easily offended should not visit that site.
