Pauline at the beach, Éric Rohmer (1983)
  • The one album where you can see the title is Bill Chinnock's "Badlands" (never heard of him or it), in the other one I recognize the image, it's Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart's "Bongo Fury".

  • Exclusive: Majority Of Voters Want Next Government To Take UK Back Into European Union
  • Is Brexit an ignorant, lazy, myopic tantrum you can undo?

    Especially when you keep on giving the goddamned Tories the keys to the castle in every election that matters.

  • Europeans of Lemmy, what places in Europe should foreigners avoid at all cost?
  • Back when Australia was still remote and exotic, before Crocodile Dundee even, a lot of people back in the day thought he sang:
    "He just smiled and gave me a bit of my sandwich",
    which would have also made for a fantastic lyric in a very silly way.

  • Where do particles come from? - Sixty Symbols
  • Ever since I was a boy, I've been fascinated by astronomy and physics, have read a bunch of books - including Alan Guth's "The Inflationary Universe" - and watched a ton of content, from "Cosmos" (as a boy when it first aired) to nearly every PBS Spacetime video (among other hard science YouTube channels).

    This video is the first time I've ever come across the Oscillon, as well as the Truth Quark and Beauty Quark in another one of this channel's videos, and at this point in my life, to be surprised by three whole new particles in one evening is kinda thrilling.

    Here's the one that mentions the Truth and Beauty Quarks.

  • On the road to Valhalla
  • Witness me, honey, here, hold my sandwich. Hey kids... KIDS! Settle down back there, jeez... pay attention, we're about to ride all shiny and chrome.

    "AWESOME!"

  • This Man Brewed Beer Using 3,000-Year-Old Yeast and a Recipe From an Ancient Egyptian Papyrus
  • Isis Pale Ale.

    It should be interesting to see what Sumerian beer was like, too, there's a 5,000 year old ode to drinking beer on a hot late afternoon, as the cool ocean breeze begins to arrive.

    If I understand what I've read recently, they'd already had beer since beyond memory, brewing beer was one of the great drivers of the adoption of agriculture, the oldest known jugs where beer might have been fermented predate ovens for baking bread by millennia, of course humanity must have been chasing the buzz for as long as it's been able.

    However, they did also make a rudimentary bread back then, spreading kneaded dough on flat rocks, leaving it to cook and harden by the sun's rays.

  • Ruins of the Incan royal estate of Ollantaytambo
  • Seriously, stop and look at this for a moment, it's a tour de force of the masonry that the Inca excelled at. This thing is quietly impressive, meaning it's not show-offy, except for the impeccable civil engineering part.

  • More Than 171,000 People Crossed State Lines to Get an Abortion in 2023
  • Next step for republicans: permanent checkpoints at red state borders. "Are your papers in order? What's in the trunk? What's in the suitcase?..."

    Next step for the mentally-lazy, smug bOtH pArTiEs ArE tHe SaMe LoL aMiRiTe types: passively let it happen, fondle their purity, distractedly yet lovingly sniff their fingers, early and often.

  • Does anyone else see an alleged old painting or black-and-white photo you've never seen before, are unsure if it's legit or a recent fake created with AI?

    For example, places like HistoryPorn have some bizarre pictures of weird inventions or WWII experimental weapons.

    How come I'm only just now coming across them? Why didn't we see them five or ten years ago, even in specialized forums and subreddits?

    Places like ArtPorn or TraditionalArt are a trickier proposition. Here my lack of knowledge is vast, but I've really loved the history of painting for over two decades now, and have recently kept coming across a lot of 18th-to-20th century paintings and painters I've never heard of before; some of these are excellent, I should have known about them... I think. But like I say, there's more that I don't know than what I do. If they are real and not recent AI creations, where are the original and who is digitizing and/or publishing so many of them all of a sudden in the past year?
