The Rosetta Stone, 2005

Pictures of the real thing, and video capture of the touchable facsimile, both housed in the British Museum.

(This was just in response to a post at The Austringer.)

Beautiful. How I wish to go to the British Museum someday! I was learning ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs at one point, but got derailed...

Are sure neither one of those are maed of cardboard? I hear that cardboard is very hard to identify, especially if it is a few thousand years old.

Hmmm. You'd think that my cases of beer would travel better to and around BBQs if they were made of cardboard.... This is a case for the ICR!

blipey: Uh, my beer seems to have fallen out the bottom of my case.

ICR: Uh, your what?

blipey: Uh. Beer, dude.

ICR: What's that?

blipey: It's what you call someone who isn't a girl.

ICR: No, the other thing.

blipey: Oh, that's the nectar of the gods.

ICR: Um. There's only one sir.

blipey: I know; Old Peculiar from Theakston Brewery.

ICR: No, God, sir. There's only one...

blipey: ...and his name is Allah. Yeah, I know. Now about my beer. You see the casse is made out of Rosetta Stone material and I was wondering why it broke.

ICR: You're going to have to go now.
