DYK for Asparagusic acid[edit]

Updated DYK query.svg On 7 July 2016, Did you know was updated with a fact from the article Asparagusic acid, which you recently created, substantially expanded, or brought to good article status. The fact was ... that the odour of urine after eating asparagus, which was described by Arbuthnot as "foetid" and by Benjamin Franklin as "disagreeable", was compared to "a flask of perfume" by Marcel Proust? The nomination discussion and review may be seen at Template:Did you know nominations/Asparagusic acid. You are welcome to check how many page hits the article got while on the front page (here's how, Asparagusic acid), and it may be added to the statistics page if the total is over 5,000. Finally, if you know of an interesting fact from another recently created article, then please feel free to suggest it on the Did you know talk page.

DYK nomination of Baruch Korff[edit]

Symbol question.svg Hello! Your submission of Baruch Korff at the Did You Know nominations page has been reviewed, and some issues with it may need to be clarified. Please review the comment(s) underneath your nomination's entry and respond there as soon as possible. Thank you for contributing to Did You Know! Doug Coldwell (talk) 13:58, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

@Doug Coldwell: I think you've contacted the wrong person as I did the earlier review. I thought I had fixed this referencing issue (I had the same question on 11th century v. 73 generations) but I definitely have now - the support comes from The Jewish Chronicle article "In Poland, he became an ardent Zionist and, after study in yeshivas in Warsaw, Jerusalem and New York, was ordained a rabbi in 1934 - thus becoming the 73rd generation in an unbroken line of rabbis dating back to the 11th century." The nominator was user:Alexislynn(BYU), FYI. Regards, EdChem (talk) 14:27, 9 July 2016 (UTC)

Buntine Oration link meant [Michael Kirby (judge)]], now fixed. Other four were intended as definitions of amphibious, added because the centipede in question is amphibious (lives on land and in water) but not amphibian (a member of the biological class Amphibia.
