Shots from a voyage

Not a bad story.


That piece of De Beers scamvertising is making the bold claim that one carat and over diamonds are so rare that less than 1% of women will ever own one. This is of course factually false, but the magazine in question (Architecture Digest, 1998 April edition) is replete with the sort of inanity. Audi advertises its then-recent A8 by stating that platinum plated sparkplugs give the engine its power, and that it's well worth it because why else would they put such a precious material somewhere nobody could see it. As if the miligrams of platinum in a spark plug are in any way related to engine power output or all that expensive.

Enemies of women, and other obsequious intermeddlers getting in the way of a good kneel.


Never have I seen a more vulgarly trite Monroe. Have you ?


Cheap plaster casts being passed as "statues", the "American" way.


Things handsome Romanians are good at. I had no idea I tell you.


The Liquid Acid Restaurant.


Less liquid, less acid.


That thing hanging from the candelabra is original spider web from before the revolution. One of.


Here's my attempt at trolling the electrical engineers among us.
