It's over

"Plenty of space online in the form of polls and listicles has been dedicated to the proper way to orient our toilet paper.

"The subject even has its own section on Wikipedia filled with arguments for 'over' (reduces the risk of transferring germs, easier to find the end, looks better) versus 'under' (tidier appearance, harder for a pet to unravel the roll).

"And now, thanks to a patent for perforated toilet paper from 1891, we officially have our answer."

Су-30 в Сирии

"The recent footage which found its way to the world wide web shows a Russian Su-30 fighter jet performing a quite risky but in another hand very amazing maneuver. The pilot almost flew into cargo space of the Russian transport plane.

"It was so close, but the grace of that dive in the end just takes a breath away. The footage also shows the cargo crew operating without any kind of restraint to keep them from falling."

Attributed to Georg Schreiber

The game board King Charles carried to the scaffold.

I can see why he wouldn’t have wanted to let it go until his head was separated from his neck. It’s that beautiful. Attributed to Georg Schreiber of Königsberg, Prussia, a 17th century master craftsman famed as the chess set maker to royalty, the game board is made of opaque white amber and translucent red amber on a wood chassis with an ebony superstructure, carved Roman-style portrait busts and chased silver accents. There’s a Nine Men’s Morris board on one side, a chess board on the other, and it opens up to reveal a diptych backgammon board.
