Baker's Dozen II


Previous thread: https://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb...d.php?t=573445

Since the other thread (thanks, Idle Thoughts, for starting it almost ten years ago!) has been loading very slowly for some Dopers, and there've been concerns that it might have become too unwieldy for the SDMB servers (having reached page 1409), I'm starting a new one here.
