Scientists have finally demystified the incredible workings of a 2,000-year-old astronomical calculator built by ancient Greeks.
A new analysis of the Antikythera Mechanism, a clock-like machine consisting of more than 30 precise, hand-cut bronze gears, show it to be more advanced than previously thought - so much so that nothing comparable was built for another thousand years.
"This device is just extraordinary, the only thing of its kind," said study leader Mike Edmunds of Cardiff University in the UK. "The design is beautiful, the astronomy is exactly right ... In terms of historical and scarcity value, I have to regard this mechanism as being more valuable than the Mona Lisa."
If the sharp-sightedness of the Greeks had kept pace with their intelligence, then maybe even the Industrial Revolution had begun one thousand years before Columbus. And so, in our era, we would not just try to visit the Moon, but we would already have arrived on other close planets.

In this video I share with you an important quote I recently came across by Jim Rohn.
"When talking about personal success, I like to ask four questions. Why? Why not? Why not you? Why not now? Why not acquire the means to travel first class through life, to see the Mona Lisa first hand, to swim the crystal waters of the Bahamas, to sample the food in Paris or Africa? Why not do it all? There's really nothing like a view from the top"

My friend, Tomas, gave me a list of people he admires and I morphed them. Da Vinci is represented by his alleged self-portrait, the Mona Lisa :D
This is a pretty cool video of someone speed painting the Numa Numa guy Gary Brolsma using chocolate syrup and a spoon. Look out Mona Lisa, we have a new most treasured piece of art in the world.

FELIZ CUMPLE NATI!!!100 ANOS -Nathaniel Adams Cole; Montgomery, 17 de marzo de1919 - 2009) Cantante estadounidense. Hijo de un ministro baptista, creció en la ciudad de Chicago, donde estudió piano. Sus primeras grabaciones datan de 1936, aún como pianista de jazz del King Cole Trio, que alcanzó cierta fama en los cuarenta. Su carrera en solitario comienza en 1948, cuando se disuelve la formación. Difícil de ubicar en un estilo concreto, Nat "King" Cole tocó diversos estilos de música y, a raíz de un viaje a Sudamérica en el que recogió diferentes influencias musicales en distintas lenguas, añadió la canción latina a su repertorio. Sus listas de éxitos son enormes, tanto en EE.UU. como en América latina o Europa. Su último éxito fue el más curioso, un "remaster" de la canción Unforgettable a dúo con su hija Nathalie cuando él había ya muerto. Junto al ya citado Unforgettable, Nature boy, Mona Lisa, Quizás, quizás, quizás y Ansiedad forman parte de sus discos más celebrados

Kumari - the living Goddess. Every tourist in Kathmandu hopes to have a glimpse of her when she appears for a short moment in a window of the palace of Kumaru Bahal, where she lives. She's a beautiful little girl with black hair and dark eyes. She's the innocence of a child, but at the same time the sensuality of a woman with red painted lips and a Mona Lisa like smile. In her forehead she wears a large tika, which is more than a decoration. It symbolizes a third eye, with which she can see other dimensions.
The process of finding a Kumari is complicated. Little girls from a certain cast are being selected. Great demands are made to the girl.
She must have the body of the Banyan tree, legs like a deer, neck like a conch and eyebrows like the cow. She must never have lost a drop of blood.
Before she's accepted she has to go through some awful situations, to test her nerves and courage. Kumari lives an isolated life in luxury. Her feet must not touch the ground, and the 4 or 5 times she appears outside the palace she's carried in a covered palanquin. The day when she has her first period, she must leave the palace and go back to her poor family, which is difficult after having lived in luxury. It's not easy to find a husband for her. Men are usually afraid of her, since she's been a goddess. The rumour says that a man who marries a Kumari will die young.
