The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archeologists in England.

"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project.

Excellent point! Artifacts like these typify the beauty found in archaeology, it is something so familiar yet so temporally distant from us. Furthermore, D’AAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW. Roman Puppies.

hi [name of person], 

this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student. 

I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.

thanks!

Clownifying ads: A good laugh at their expense.

Guerrilla resistance to advertising:

If advertisements typically occupy our lives as a taken-for-granted source of psychological coercion, this campaign reminds us to (1) actually look at what we’re seeing and (2) remember not to take ads, their messages, or their products too seriously.
