27 May 1962 - The Centralia mine fire is ignited in the town's landfill above a coal mine. Centralia, Pennsylvania. "The Town That Was" ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhOeyWlrSEw ) Centralia was an entire Pennsylvanian town wiped out by an underground coal fire that's been burning since 1962. My family has roots from the neighboring towns Mt Carmel, Kulpmont and Shamokin to the west of Centralia and Mahanoy to the east of Centralia, so I've always been morbidly interested by it.

+Leslie P I didn't know that. Very sad but not entirely unexpected.

He is often described as "the father of Norwegian landscape painting" and is regarded as the first Norwegian Painter ever to reach a level of artistic accomplishment comparable to that attained by the greatest European artists of his day. He was also the first acquire genuine fame and cultural renown abroad. As one critic has put it, "J.C.

Google is absolutely schizophrenic.
Commentary: Does Google really need four chat apps? This veteran social chatter says no.

I had once thought that Hangouts was the way to go since it was voice, text, and video on both mobile and desktop - would unify conversations to the person,, and work with the Google address book.

That's what I wanted.

But it never worked right for me - too noisy and notifying everywhere, awkward to use, and with Google Fi, a text message on Hangouts uses my data plan and doesn't do MMS, whereas using Messenger does texts via SMS and MMS works, but it's only on the phone.

Good Lord Google - there's a REASON people don't really like using your shit.

Isle of the Dead (German: Die Toteninsel) is the best-known painting of Swiss Symbolist artist Arnold Böcklin (1827–1901). Prints were very popular in central Europe in the early 20th century—Vladimir Nabokov observed in his novel Despair that they could be "found in every Berlin home". (Wikipedia)

Is this a comment on the state of modern art and culture? San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art.

>Modern
>Art

Pick one.
Some teens from San Francisco caused quite a spectacle (sorry) when they placed a pair of glasses on the floor of an art museum recently.

Ozymandias by Percy Bysshe Shelley as read by Bryan Cranston

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

I've always wondered about this.
Images like these have been very popular on the internet recently, with this listicle from The Poke giving some great examples of the genre, as well as the great Sexy Codicology website, and a lot …
