The Greatest Lie

  • What they say to kids who want pets: Are you sure you're not just saying you want one because all your friends have one? Remember, it's not going to be small and cute forever, it will grow up eventually! It's a living being that will depend entirely on you for the rest of its life. Are you really sure you're ready for this?
  • What they say to adults who DON'T want kids: Oh, you'll want one sooner or later. Everybody does, after all. Besides, babies are soooo cute, aren't they? You'd better hurry up before you get too old!
"you had such a thirst for knowledge; and now school has ruined that."

A Paracas skull: note the dimple toward the top of the head, which is a product of head-binding, depressing the suture between the parietal plate. Head binding is a form of body alteration in which the skull of a human being is intentionally deformed. It is done by distorting the normal growth of a child’s skull by applying force. It is typically carried out on an infant, as the skull is most pliable at this time. In a typical case, headbinding begins approximately a month after birth and continues for about six months.

#ThrowBackThursday

We wanted to share this charming label found in many of our books for #TBT.  It dates to a time when the library was known as the Public Library of the City of Detroit (before 1865).. We love the wording, but love the five cent fine for grease spots even more.

Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

Wow, they were pretty hard core about fines - 5 cents for dog-earring a page!

Have you ever seen brown eyes in the sun? You don’t always notice it at first but you’ll see that ‘brown’ no longer describes them. They melt into golden rays, circling an eclipse. There’s nothing boring about brown eyes, not even when the later hours encroach; they just turn into a sunset of their own.

I can just see a couple of my Sith doing this, just to mess with future archeologist’s head. (Sorry, Talos).
