Dick Smith Lies!

I'd like to see a chart detailing the use of the nickname "Dick". My assumption is it was once a fairly common way to shorten "Richard", but has fallen by the wayside over the last 30+ years, in favor of "Rick", "Rich", and perhaps even "Chard". Fallen drastically. Have you met a young Dick?

Who'd choose to be a Dick these days, really?

Also, this phone only floats for the first ten minutes in water. It's in the footnotes. The glorious footnotes - legal arcana to ward off evil magic (i.e. lawsuits). Another example: CAUTION! Coffee is hot.
