Brian Eno was the first node on Everything. It was inserted manually into the database, (before the Create a Node function was coded). The Brian Eno node has the lowest node_ID, that may be the reason that it comes up so often in random nodes, (that could be a distinct possibility, depending on how random nodes is coded). Of course the other option is that nate made it work this way on purpose. So that the "Adam" of nodes would appear most often.
I have actually read the first 1000 or so nodes, (go to node ID 10156, and then keep adding 1 to read the nodes in order). Brian Eno and The Simpsons are the parents of all nodes, (it was the second node). A large portion of the next 1000 nodes spring from these 2 nodes. Nate's original writeup under The Simpsons is gone, but his Brian Eno writeup is protected and will live eternally.
Actually the Brian Eno node has the lowest node_ID of normal nodes, (a few of the functional nodes have lower IDs).
