how i also learned this from the book i'm reading

from "a crack in the edge of the world", a book about the history of the san francisco earthquake of 1906:

it was owned by claus spreckels, the sucrose magnate whose fondness for younger women is said by some to have given us the term "sugar daddy".

the inane trivia just keeps on rolling.
