So, if any of you ever find yourself in Lewes, Delaware you HAVE to visit ST. Peter’s Episcopal Church. This is the first church, in the first town, in the first state. The church yard is…. beyond words.

Most of the graves here are from the 1700s to the 1900s. There are so many interesting people laid to rest here, and so many histories I want to learn. Every time I visit, I try to spend time in a different area of the grave yard.

This grave in particularly I am always drawn to. There is no family name, no dates, no inscriptions other than the carving of the rose and the inscription, “MY ANGEL BOY”.

Google continues to expand the range of its Street View project. The company launched imagery from the ancient rock-cut city of Petra, in Jordan (and one of the seven wonders of the world, depending on which list you’re looking at), as well as imagery from 30 other historical sites in the country.

honestly the fact that the chronometer doesn’t transport objects (e.g. clothing) to the past, combined with its nearly-impossible-to-understand design, makes it the artifact i’d least want to use. like, you want to go back in time to visit your favorite historical figure? no camera for proof, no pen and paper for an autograph, and oh yeah, you’re completely naked in the presence of someone you idolize. want to kill hitler before the holocaust happens? can’t bring any modern weapons with you. want to visit early time periods in winter months? good luck surviving out in the open with no coat!  WHO EVEN DESIGNED THIS STUPID THING
