Wragge was also responsible for the convention of naming cyclones. His original idea was to name them after the letters of the Greek alphabet but he later used the names of figures from Polynesian mythology and politicians. Politicians to have cyclones named after them by Wragge included James Drake, Edmund Barton and Alfred Deakin. Other colourful names he used included Xerxes, Hannibal, Blasatus and Teman. After Wragge's retirement, the practice of naming cyclones would cease for sixty years.
I was just making fun of his claim to have overdosed on "fake" cocaine. Lol. I think I took brevity a little too far with my original comment.Just curious...why the quotation marks? Are you just saying it's "fake", but not just fake? I'm so confused...even to what I am asking here.
