Pieces of history

  • History of murder.  Archaeologists have found a 430,000 year old human skull in the mountains of Spain, and it is the skull of a murder victim, they think.  Slightly depressing thought: we were killing each other even before we were modern humans, 'tseems
  • History of theft. Toronto woman protests "appropriation without consent" after she publishes a photo of herself and an artist puts it in a gallery and sells it for $90,000.  Jeez, universities do this constantly with your text materials, and it gets called "fair dealing.
