David Thompson's blog always has interesting stuff you're not likely to see anywhere else, and here's a good example: an interactive web site that provides historical background on a number of "phantom islands" (islands that allegedly have been seen, in some cases visited, over the past several hundred years, but of which no trace now exists).
It took me a few minutes to figure out how to navigate this thing. Make sure you're in "cruise" mode, and note the edges of the page; you'll see the names of islands and little arrows. Click on one, and the screen will take you to where the selected island was first "mapped", and you'll get a pop-up with info.
I note, with pleasure, that they have not yet stumbled across Pacovia.
Welcome to Pacovia! You're just in time for dinner."
