Lazy Posting

Just linkage while I read news.

“Here's Your Newborn Dead Baby, Ma'am”

Bring me the knuckle of John the Baptist: Scientists claim 'positive' tests on 1st-century relics which are from one man, from the right place at the right time
When archaeologists claimed to have found the bones of John the Baptist amid the ruins of an ancient Bulgarian monastery experts were understandably sceptical.

But carbon dating tests carried out at Oxford University have provided scientific evidence to support the extraordinary claim.

A knucklebone has been dated to the 1st Century AD - a time when the revered Jewish prophet is believed to have lived.

Grew up in 20015, Beaches!!!

P.S. My dad bought the house in the mid 60s. It cost $18,000. Too bad he couldn't afford** a few thousand more, we could have had one of the nice brick jobs like some of the neighbors do, and save about a bazillion dollars in maintenance over the years.

** We were poor, dad was a journalist. And a catholic.

Siouxsie Sioux was explicit -- she wants the head of the Preacher Man. Knuckle-bones are not an acceptable substitute.

I did like the learned talk of Carbon-13 testing, followed by an innvolved description of how the bones have been lugged around from pillar to post over the centuries.

Damn, I was hoping for a "fight club" for bored, aggression-filled homemakers.

Ha. Saw the "Tango" URL and figured it'd be Rybczynski.

I rate for The 4th Dimension, but of course you know that.
I tried to get Coulthart interested in Daniel Crooks -- a contemporary disciple of Rybczynski -- but Coulthart is dismissive of HD digital video work, which he thinks is all just CGI.

Mommy-fighting squicks me out. So don't relate that sort of weird nastiness.

I'm pretty curious about the new Solondz.
