    Jordan Black Azie Mira Dungey used to portray a slave at Mount Vernon's historical site (George Washington's house). She received so many idiotic questions and comments from tourists that she decided to turn them into a video series :

    Ask a Slave - part 1

    Ask a Slave - part 2

    Also I suspect the following video to be much more enjoyable while under the effects of psychotropes :

    feel free to investigate

    Also I do know what a fox sounds like. I hear them sometimes, it's very peculiar and quite unmistakable :

    I used to do Ren Faire and we tried very hard to be very period accurate in our camp (we portrayed well-to-do Florentines since the Medici were backers of Henry VIII). Our set up included four pavilions, each with beds, on which I'd usually nap with my kid when he was a baby to help him sleep during the day. The number of times we were asked, often loudly next to the sleeping infant, if he was a "real" baby was a little absurd.

    @celan: Okay, that shred is pretty amazing. The overly loud thigh-slaps just make it.

    400-year-old jewel-encrusted skeletons unearthed in churches across Europe

    A relic hunter dubbed 'Indiana Bones' has lifted the lid on a macabre collection of 400-year-old jewel-encrusted skeletons unearthed in churches across Europe.
    Art historian Paul Koudounaris has hunted down and photographed dozens of gruesome skeletons in some of the world's most secretive religious establishments.
    Incredibly, some of the skeletons, which took up to five years to decorate, were even found hidden away in lock-ups and containers.
    They are now the subject of his latest book, which sheds light on the forgotten ornamented relics for the first time. (BNPS)
