Tenth President John Tyler has a living grandson.

More than 200 years after the 10th President of the United States was born, one of his grandsons is still alive. As impossible as that may seem, the math — and biology — checks out. John Tyler, who was born in 1790 and became President in 1841 after William Henry Harrison died in office (possibly of pneumonia), had a son named Lyon Gardiner Tyler in 1853. This son was born to the then-60-something Tyler and his second, much younger, wife, Julia Gardiner. Lyon then had two sons of his own in his 70s (also with a much younger second wife), one of whom — Harrison Ruffin Tyler, born in 1928 — is still gracing the Earth in his early nineties.

It may make this feat slightly less surprising to know that Tyler had 15 children, more than any other POTUS in U.S. history. Tyler’s actual presidency is less remarkable than this biographical oddity, alas — he was referred to as “His Accidency” upon assuming office and wasn’t re-nominated in the following election. (He was also an enslaver whose profitable plantation ran on the labor of 40–50 enslaved people.) Though his grandsons haven’t had major political aspirations, you might say it was in Tyler’s blood to seek office: His father, John Tyler Sr., was roommates with Thomas Jefferson at the College of William and Mary and later served as the 15th Governor of Virginia.

I did not know that! Good stuff.  :thumbup:

Here's an interesting bit of info about tongue's, namely my tongue.
A little over a month ago a CT scan showed that my cancer was spreading a little, so my Oncologist put me on a new drug and one of the side effects is mouth sores, so for a minute my tongue looked like raw steak! With a strong/powerful mouth wash med + a Lidocaine rinse it's getting better, so that's good.

BTW... in case I didn't mention this elsewhere, this new med retails for 50k per month and is actual full blown chemo.

Wow! A lot of people don't realize that when they brush their teeth they should also brush their tongue.

But with people getting their tongues split, tattooed, pierced, etc. I'd think that could alter their print???

It would seem logical that doing any of those things would change the print, like getting a cut on a fingertip that caused a small scar would change that one fingers print.
