Interesting Stuff You Saw on the I-net Today


Recommended Posts

That's amazingly good quality video--was it enhanced/cleaned up in some way? I didn't even realize that it was possible to film in color in 1900.

Of course it was enhanced. The world was in black and white in 1900 (if you don't get the Calvin & Hobbs reference, for shame!)

true.

i believe that huge sea monsters depicted in 1700's etchings were closer to reality than myth.

why? we later had the power to hunt them in the seas, killing them, and thus their young never lived long enough to grow huge.

I found this rather frightening. I wonder how military pilots feel about it:

yes, scary to me too, not from a, o, we lost another airplane, but from a, we've compromised our defenses point of view!

of the 2, the blue pigment is most amazing - who would think that by now we'd be discovering such?

the wonderful colors of the old masters (think michael angelo, leonardo devinci ) have been around for centuries -

yet! we find a new blue!

 

very cool!

Still got a rotary phone on the wall here. Last time it was connected to the line it worked after a fashion . But no use if a automated answer service is called up.
