John Hill

Died 21 Nov 1775 (born c. 1716).English writer and botanist who compiled the first book on British flora to be based on the Linnaean nomenclature.

He also wrote plays, novels, and papers on natural history, medicine, astronomy, and geology. He edited the monthly British Magazine (1746-50) and contributed a daily society-gossip column to The London Advertiser and the Literary Gazette. In 1759, the first of the 26 folio volumes (1759-75) of his Vegetable System was published, containing 1,600 copper plate engravings, represented 26,000 different plants.

Cross-eyed dog

A man took his Rottweiler to the vet and said "My dog's cross-eyed, is there anything you can do for him?"

"Well," said the vet, "lets have a look at him." So he picks the dog up and has a good look at its eyes.

"Hmm," says the vet, "I'm going to have to put him down"

"Just because he's cross-eyed?" says the man.

"No, because he's heavy," says the vet.
