How old were you when you realized that a county was originally an area governed by a count?

@noelle I wanna say 12 or 13, it was like an “OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH” moment

Then I wondered why the heck we had them in California, which as far as I know had no Counts in Spanish colonial days, they gave land holdings differently :D

@noelle today actually

and now I'm pissed that county governments aren't more people with capes and bad fake Bela Lugosi accents

@noelle sheriffs being the people who rule over a shire was a bigger ah-ha moment for me
