How did I miss that?

Am I the last person to find out that Robinson Crusoe was based on a real person? I always thought it was purely fictional until I read this article about the man the story was based on.

Fascinating story, but I could have done without the goat-shagging bit.

I am surprised you didn’t know about Selkirk. His story was probably more interesting than Robinson Crusoe. As for the goats, he was a Scotsman, after all. It is in the bluid.
