Shakespeare is 450 years old today! Probably today. More or less. It's a guess. But anyway.

The geologists at Stanford are analyzing the land of Game of Thrones. It's complicated.

NOISE: Error in the Void shows what happens when digital recording goes awry. It's rather pretty.

Some people might fear the Tiki idol from that Hawaii "Brady Bunch" episode. But not Dave Lowe! He's made a replica!

Consider the idea of transforming abandoned Paris subway stations into nightclubs, or underground terrariums, or any number of things. It's a possibility!

Also from Paris, but from over 100 years ago: you can see parts of the silent films which were on display at the 1900 Paris Exhibition. See Sarah Bernhardt as Hamlet, for example!

First we had an oral history of Heathers; now there's one for MST3K...which might be returning in an online format, evidently.

And finally, this is the sort of story archivists and time travelers love: more than eighty years after a photograph is taken, the two children in it find each other again. (Bonus fact: one of the kids grew up to write The Very Hungry Caterpillar, among other things.)

TL:DR Wikipedia is my new favorite website.

The newest theory about Stonehenge posits that it is a huge, but short, bell tower.

Watch the English language develop throughout the centuries with this handy infographic!

What's better than Tolkien characters? Puppet Tolkien characters!

Happy Friday!

From Julie: Why Librarians Are Awesome. It’s true, you know.

Phenakistoscopes were the forerunners of animated gifs, and might melt your brain. (The one with the rats going over the side? How do they do that?)

In case of zombie outbreak, do not head to New Jersey. Or anywhere in the southern United States, really.

Have a spiffy weekend/holiday, everyone! See you next week.

It's that time of year again, when Peeps take center stage...in this contest for the best legal diorama! There are some seriously strange entries this year.

Do you remember your first Tweet? Bill Lucey has tracked down the first posts on Twitter by many well-known individuals.If you're interested in that sort of thing, Social Mention is one of many new tools for digging into the past of social media...which can be frightening.

One issue with being a time traveler would be putting up with the way cities smelled, I think. Now perfumers are recreating those smells, so you don't even need a TARDIS in order to be traumatized by ancient sewer systems (or the lack thereof).

Today we are inquisitive.

Has anyone played Kentucky Route Zero yet? How is it?

Has anyone tried Habit RPG? I just registered and am considering it, for those "never get around to it" projects at the very least.

How do these baseball coaches learn such great calligraphy skills?

Do you like props? Are you intrigued by how they're made? Would you like to see some videos?

Have you heard of the Cliff House? It was an amazing (and short-lived) structure. Go and investigate!

Here's a lovely piece about Retronaut, one of my favorite sites of all time. You can spend hours upon hours delving into the images.
