Meme from Geobabe1

Meme I just made up: Go to Wikipedia, click on “Random article” and post the intros (or the whole thing, if it’s a short one) to the first three you get.

1. Iorlas
Iorlas is a minor character in J.R.R Tolkien’s novel The Lord of the Rings.

He is Bergil’s uncle from Lossarnach, presumably Beregond’s brother. He is only mentioned by Bergil and never appears in person, though he likely fights in the siege of the city and the battles of the Pelennor Fields and the Black Gate.

In the Peter Jackson film, there is a similarly named character named Irolas (played by Ian Hughes). He is an officer of Minas Tirith who appears after Faramir retreats from Osgiliath.

2. Transcarga
Transcarga (International Airways) is a cargo airline based in Caracas, Venezuela. It operates domestic charter cargo services.

3. Furze Platt School
Furze Platt School in Maidenhead is made up of two schools: Furze Platt Junior and Furze Platt Senior School.

Furze Platt Senior school has 6th form facilities, and is an ‘IT/Maths’ Specialist school, and has notably high levels of technology to boast in each classroom.

Furze Platt Senior has been successful, mainly due to new management, in turning the ‘tough’ image around into a very successful and influential secondary school. It is highly regarded by Ofsted and many other governing bodies.

I admit that I skipped two random entries. The first was on monkey hunting, and I’m just not into putting that in my journal. The second was 1921 in Ireland. And while I could be into putting that in my journal, just the first graf was super-long and would try your patience.
