I have learned that bonesmashing is a thing where you do light smashes of your facial bones in an attempt to restructure it and also there is a forum called looksmaxxing.com and I do not wish to investigate this further, thank you.

Mungo Jerry, the British band known for "In the Summertime", was named after a character from one of T. S. Elliot Jellicle Cat poems. Worth noting that this is all before Andrew Lloyd Webber further popularized them with his musical Cats

I learned that

Naked figures with breasts and hollow backs might be related to elves (fairies).

In medieval folklore, elven women are connected to lakes, streams and bogs. They are beautiful but dangerous creatures. They can enchant people, and sexual intercourse with an elf leads to losing one's soul.

The elven woman Slattenlangpat (directly translates to 'saggy-long-tit') is described with her breasts hanging below her waist. Her long breasts symbolise fertility, and with them, she feeds her fish children by laying down on a rock or bridge by the river and tossing her tits out into the water.

Every night she is hunted and caught by the Nightrider, a figure with solid connotations to Odinn. Followed by dogs, he flies away with her splayed across his horse. The next night, she comes back to life, and the hunt starts over.

Thus a tiny elven woman in gold might have been a suitable sacrifice to Odinn, as this was what he put down on his nocturnal hunts.

I learned that there's a person in English history called fucking Willikin. What a fake and cursed island.

Technically a tombstone is a stele, it's a piece of stone that stands in the open and has writing on it, but we rarely think of them as such.

Jin Shangyi, a masterwork chinese painter, did her portrait when she was a nobody and incorporated an old landscape painting into it that makes the whole thing reminiscent of a Vermeer piece except with, you know, the future first lady on it. A favorite painting of mine with a crazy story to boot.

Quote
In 1984, Peng Liyuan was still studying at the China Conservatory of Music. Her teacher Jin Tielin and painter Jin Shangyi were neighbors. Jin Shangyi needed a few models. Mr. Jin introduced three students from China Conservatory of Music. Among them was Peng Liyuan. This painting was painted in the home of the painter Sanlitun. It took five and a half days to paint from life, more than three hours a day, and then processed it. During this period, the painter saw the Northern Song Dynasty painter Fan Kuan's work "Snow Scenery and Cold Forest". He liked the Northern Song Dynasty. The landscape is rigorous and classical, so he tried to express the sense of volume in the ordinary, and created the painting.

The most chaotropic (i.e. reduces the hydrophobic quality of a solution) food additive is vanillin. While the most kosmotropic (the opposite of chaotropic), is sodium citrate (E331)

this allows us to create a chaos-order alignment axis for additives, with vanilla being chaotic and sodium citrate being ordered
