Lore tells us that Jed Bartles was a mysterious antebellum character, a blundering and addled-minded feral boy who appeared in a small village outside of Dallas, confused and girlishly attractive and only capable of simple, everyday reading skills.



Unpossible. A Jed Bartles creation. For many years, critics wondered if perhaps Jed Bartles was an idiot savant actually accessing parts of his brain that the average person could never dream of, creating new and advanced language. His creation of the word 'unpossible' struck some as an gaffe in remembering the real term, impossible. Others conjectured that unpossible didn't mean impossible at all, but was a new word to describe a much more sophisticated notion, that a certain possibility could be negated entirely and turned into its polar opposite, or made 'unpossible'...

After careful study, Jed Bartles was found to have just been mistaken. Twice.
