(Which is different from the Aristocrats.) Brian Joseph Davis uses law enforcement composite sketch software to bring literary characters to life. Both creepy AND cool!
This story about the Colosseum being damaged by a snowstorm is sad because an amazing monument and part of history falling apart is always sad.
But it’s weird, because I had no idea it snowed in Italy, aside from the Alpine region.
(Apparently, it does, but not usually this much. Check out this awesome Flickr set documenting Winter 2012 in Urbino!)
The Dark Origins of Valentine’s Day. Don’t mind me, I’ll be out in the street, waiting for somebody to hit me with an animal skin.
I love stuff like this. Archaeologists think they may have found the Queen of Sheba’s goldmine. You know, the one that let her roll into Jerusalem with a hoard to give to King Solomon? I just love stuff like this. As my best friend said, Troy was mythology until we found it. Now this!
It’s Read in the Bathtub Day today, callooh, callay! You know what I want? I want a digital book projector, that will display the book I’m reading– on my shower door. It could be like a giant iPad, and I could flip pages while I get my scrub on. That’s one way to respond to the people who say the problem with e-readers is that you can’t read them in the bath.
Or rather, how people who need to survive them learn how to survive them. When a pilot’s world turns upside down from the NYTimes. (I’ve never been in a helicopter, which means I’ve also never been in a helicopter crash. I can say with confidence that my method works!)
