Calvin coolidge: couldn’t keep up with the jazz age.

It’s who Coolio (ironically) named himself after

Taft! He was first provisional governor of Cuba, and looked like Wilford Brimley. Taft.

probably FDR isn’t it

Herbert Hoover’s pretty unusual in that his term as President was possibly the least interesting thing he did with his life. He was successful enough as a mining engineer to retire 17 years before becoming President and still lived for a further 31 years after leaving office

Andrew Jackson killed a man in a duel over his wife’s honour before he became president, and when in office, once got punched in the face by a sailor.

He achieved many… things.

Is this an appropriate moment to say that I saw Coolio outside Watches of Switzerland in Fenchurch Street shortly after Gangsters Paradise came out?

Maybe two hours ago it was.
