    He had severe lead poisoning while in office due to overuse of medication. Smithsonian did a fascinating documentary about the Lincoln you never heard about.

  • Andrea Solek

    Lead poisoning, personal tragedy and professional stress did a number on him over 5 years.

    Never said I was being persecuted, Laura. Not was I trying to push my religious views on anyone. I was attempting to engage in a dialog about a topic I'm interested in. Oh well.

    What's interesting, it's I don't recall ever following this person or this board, so I'm not even sure why this pin showed up on my timeline.

    I think I'll have a beer.

This comparison looks crazier almost every single year it's been done. Shanghai in 1987 and 2013

so cool! / A new project from photographer Alexander Khokhlov is prompting doubletakes and pushing portraiture in a new direction. The Moscow-based artist’s latest series, dubbed “2D or not 2D,” uses heavy makeup and post-production techniques to transform human faces into seemingly two-dimensional images.

In 1953 the BBC made a point-of-view film from a London to Brighton train. 30 years later they did the same. And 30 years after that they did it once more. London to Brighton Train Journey: 1953 - 2013.

"VW Beetle sphere: Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor made this amazing thing, a 1953 Volkswagen Beetle formed into a sphere." (via @Jason Stocks-Young Kottke )

Crazy - sinkhole draining the water to an underground cavern. The whole video is mesmerizing but it really starts getting insane around 2:30.

  • Marilyn Sanders

    I agree that there is an underground space (cavern) that the water is draining into. I would hate to get sucked into that thing !!

  • Amy Wright

    Is it me or are those guys crazy for standing so close to that sink hole?? The amount of water, debris, ice, and earth that it consumed makes my head spin! I think they are dangerously close, would hate to see it open up more and swallow them!!

  • Susan Hynes

    I thought the same thing Amy - way too close. And apparently 'getting insane' is a very subjective term; I didn't really notice much difference

  • Theresa

    if u read the description on youtube from the person who took the video you'd see if a whirlpool no where is it mentioned its a sinkhole nor any mention of an underground cavern
