You forgot to ask a trivia question to keep the thread going, ya dumb Polock! Speaking of Poland, who was the ruler of Poland in 1796?
Catherine II of Russia until November 17th (NS), and then Paul I of Russia (before Catherine II could allegedly remove Paul I from succession and give it to Alexander), but he wasn't coronated until 1797 (OS or NS).

the great bull moose Teddy Roosevelt! he didn't quite "continue" the speech, though, as he hadn't started it yet, he was leaving dinner and on his way to the speech when he was shot. the bullet was slowed by the unwieldy manuscript of his speech that he would be giving, slowed to the point of causing very minimal damage. he went on to give 90 minutes of that speech before retiring and later collapsing from it.
who was the first American to win the Nobel Peace Prize?
