Yeah not sure why this is featured now since it is not a "new" find (we've seen that image many times before),

some people were too busy combing their hair to notice the first few dozen times
 
Go forth, and kill!

Yeah not sure why this is featured now since it is not a "new" find (we've seen that image many times before), but still neat nonetheless.

I also wonder when we will start calling it the Antikythera Planetarium now that we know what it is (mechanism was the appropriate term when we had no idea).

Any idea who that is in the Wonder Woman pick in "Nobody wants Wonder Woman?"

It looks a little like a younger Robin from "How I Met Your Mother" (Cobie Smulders)


Or is it just some random model / booth girl?

"I forgot to with Frans a happy birthday"? I think you mean "wish"...

Where's that proofreader when you need him?
