Very interesting. I didn't know that.

Really enjoyed it. It still makes me grin when someone unravels a myth.
Your explanation of the Padlock myth was like witnessing a game of Chinese Whispers in reverse. Excellent, facinating and enlightning. Thanks.

Hi Miakaal, thank you so very much for that. You might just be the third person to ever read it (myself and my editor being the first two), or at least it often seems that way when reading the Stride threads.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Excellent, Tom.
There are several points worth discussing, but not in a Kidney-thread.
I've always entertained the idea, for instance, that the Ripper had planned to kill twice that night.

Hi David, I'm sure Tom is gonna love ya for that thought about the Ripper “possibly having planned to kill two that night“, but I personally disagree. I feel like Eddowes plus the GSG might have been a “revenge“ for the IWEC people having interrupted him.

With kind regards from Copenhagen, where “something is rotten in the kingdom of Danemark“.

Hello my dear, personally I'm still undecided. I like the way you interpret the GSG, though.
Copenhague ? Aimerais bien voir ça.

Not to highjack too much away from Kidney, but you do know that at least one IWEC member, Israel Sunshine, lived in the Goulston projects?

Recherche inclue. And my Hostel room (which is built like a ship cabin) features a view directly inside of the local police headquarter's windows. Was thinking about getting hold of some rope... ;-)

Just another IWEC member, who was a resident at the Goulston building. Lots of Victorian Jews chose the first name “Israel“. “Sunshine“ might have been a translation of his original name (“Israel Sonnenschein“ or something?)
