Pair of hammered, gold chalices; ca. 2200-2000 BCE NE Iran. Gold was not indigenous to N.E Iran but in Sumerian creation myths it came from the mysterious Dilmun “the place where the sun rises,” and considered the site at which creation took place. The gold was probably mined in Anatolia (Turkey). Gold was often recycled in ancient Mesopotamia. by etta

This baby was three weeks old and was resting comfortably in her car seat when the mother took a picture - After the picture was developed, she saw the gray image next to the baby that appeared to be another baby - The mother had lost her first baby due to a miscarriage and thinks that this was her lost baby coming to watch over her newborn sister. by rhonda

A silk purse embroidered by Marie Antoinette while imprisoned in the Temple. This too was formerly owned by Madame de Tourzel and as a nice touch, it was listed with a replica of Marie Antoinette’s final letter, sent to her sister in law Madame Élisabeth on the 16th October 1793. This purse was expected to sell for €12,000 – €15,000 but went for €97,700. by penny

The Federal Reserve (a private banking cartel that benefits the elite and Bilderberg members) was audited for the first time in 100 years July 2011. The results are on Socialist Senator Sanders' webpage and also below. Massive fraud and money laundering was revealed. Germany asked for their gold back and were told they could not have it by the Federal Reserve. Germany asked to see it and the Fed said they'd get it back in 7 years. by corina

"I remember in the first film there was this amazing big golden dragon egg that opened up and was crystal inside. One afternoon I just put it in a pillowcase and smuggled it home. But a few days after, Warner Brothers started this massive hunt to find out who took the dragon egg, so I had to anonymously hand it in and hope no one would guess it was me." - Rupert Grint. by jana
