Kathy Nightingale goes back to 1920 where she meets a man, marries him, and has three children, including a little girl named Sally, a beautiful little girl with dark hair, like her mother’s.
Billy Shipton goes back to 1960 where he meets and marries a beautiful, dark haired girl named Sally.
I’ll just leave you to ponder that for a moment.

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
He was like the Renaissance Robert Pattinson

An 18th century collection of choirbooks transcribed by the Augustinian friar Miguel de Aguilar (National Institute of Anthropology and History, Mexico).
Post-medieval (early 18th century), but handwritten - and really BIG! These manuscripts were used in a church by groups of singers, which made it necessary to create such big pages - how else would you be able to read the musical notes? They are mostly made of very big animal skins. From big beast to big book. Awesome.
