Bob Loblaw's Law Blog.

Hello there.
It's nice to see you found my page.
Just finished college and trying to find someone who will pay me.
I'm obsessed with history, politics, and space.
I focus on the Middle East but study Russia/Eastern Europe for fun.
I believe in the subjunctive and the Oxford comma, long may they reign.

Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

This GIF shows how the toucan releases heat using its beak to cool itself off.
The toucan beak isn’t just beautiful, it’s also an adjustable thermal radiator that the bird uses to warm and cool itself. When the bird is hot, the blood vessels in their beak open up to allow more circulation to enable heat to escape. Birds can’t sweat so they have to come up with some life hacks to get the job done. [video]

mediumaevum:

The Lorsch Gospels is an illuminated Gospel Book written between 778 and 820, roughly coinciding with the period of Charlemagne's rule over the Frankish Empire. Both the manuscript and the carved ivory panels from the cover are rare and important survivals from the art of this period.
