Roman grave of a Celtic woman: "To the spirit of the departed Bodica[ca?], wife, lived for 27 years." Cool!

And just like that, a well-known dystopian fictional world takes a great stride toward plausibility.
At one point or another, all of us have probably felt like 'love', however we define it, is more trouble than it's worth. 'Love hurts' and 'heartache' are phrases most of us can relate to and a 'cure for love' was written about by Lucretius, Ovid and Shakespeare. But is love just a troublesome artifice we've created for ourselves, or a fundamental part of human existence, to be cherished even when it hurts us?

Now that you mention it, I think +Mealika Brown​ would make a great Muppet.
Whether or not you love ‘The Muppets,’ you’ve definitely never seen them like this before. One photographer made this incredible series of pictures showing what your favorite furry creatures would look like as women of color, and the results are extraordinary.

Fascinating foresight from Vint Cerf. It will be interesting to see if there's a noticeable movement toward rephysicalization in the near future after all the digitalization of recent years. Are we near the crest of that wave?
Internet pioneer Vint Cerf says it is time to start preserving the vast quantities of digital data before they are lost forever

It's slightly ironic – though I know that's probably not the correct word to use – that I have spent the past several months scanning all my old physical photographs with a high-resolution scanner in order to give all those photographs away to family members. The physical photographs still exist, but I no longer have them. I've done this in an effort to declutter.

All the photographs exist in cloud storage and in a very large external hard drive. :)

A seaman meets a pirate in a tavern, and they take turns to tell their adventures on the seas. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg leg, a hook, and an eye patch. Curious, the seaman asks "So, how did you end up with the peg leg?"

The pirate replies, "I was swept overboard into a school o' sharks off the Barbary Coast. Before they could heave me out, a shark bit me leg off."

"Wow!" said the seaman. "What about the hook?"

"Well, now," replied the pirate, "that's from when we were boarding an enemy ship and were battlin' the other sailors with swords. As I was pullin' meself aboard with me sword 'twixt me teeth, someone cut me hand clean off."

"Incredible!" remarked the seaman. "How did you get the eye patch?"

"A seagull dropping fell into me eye," replied the pirate.

"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked.

"Aye..." said the pirate, "Ya see, that was me first day with the hook."

The Joke of the Day

Little Billy wanted $100 badly and prayed for two weeks but nothing happened.

Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100. When the postal authorities received the letter addressed to "God, USA", they decided to send it to the President.

The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send Billy a $5.00 bill.

The President thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

Billy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank you note to God, which read:

Dear God,

Thank you very much for sending the money, however, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington D.C. and, as usual, those crooks deducted $95.00.

Thanks,

Billy

Introduction
I'm a jack of few trades, master of none.

I win the bread as a supervisor for a team collecting data that is fed into our software tool, which predicts and helps mitigate the problem of electronic and electrical components going obsolete. Got that?

I'm currently detoxing from more than a decade of postgraduate work (historical linguistics at the University of Georgia). I'm glad to now be able to pursue my many interests in several unrelated subjects -- not to mention my family (which will always trump all).

I'm also a recovering musician.

To give you an idea of some of my interests, here are a few of my circles:
  • tech (especially Google/Android)
  • science (archaeology, paleontology, anthropology, linguistics)
  • theology
  • music
  • sci-fi TV (among my favorite shows: The X-Files, Babylon 5, LOST, Farscape, Doctor Who...)

I can do several Muppet voices. Yes, maybe even better than you.

Such a pleasant place to hang out. They have breakfast food, lunch sandwiches, and pastries (from Wilson's) in addition to java. I tried a mocha latte, which had excellent flavor. The upper floor has tables, side rooms, and a selection of popular used books on sale (from Gottwals across the street). It's a great place to study. It's also set up for live coffee-house-style performances (with sound equipment and even a guitar ("for experienced guitar players only"). The decor was tasteful and attractive throughout. I especially liked the old photographs of downtown Perry.

Pretty sure this is the best Pad Thai I've ever had--certainly the best I've had in Athens. The lunch portion is quite generous. My waitress was friendly and attentive. I'll certainly be back.

Since my not-yet-girlfriend (now wife) first brought me to eat here in 1998, this Mongolian BBQ has been my absolute favorite restaurant. I live in Georgia, but when visiting my in-laws here, everyone knows that I will be eating several meals at Mongolian BBQ. I have to get my fix! Nothing I've tried back East even approaches this place. Even when it's been over a year between visits out here, the friendly wife of the owner always remembers my wife and I. This shows more than just the frequency of my visits -- it helps explain the frequency of my visits. The food is great, but so is the service. If you try it and don't care too much for the food, remember that you can completely vary the ingredients or sauces next time and have an absolutely different dish. The suggestions they provide are tasty as well, so you can rely on that if you don't want to have to think about it. This is great food, people.
