Albertus Seba (1665-1736), a Dutch apothecary, had one of the most extensive collections of natural curiosities in the world. He commissioned artists to draw all his specimens, then had them engraved and published as a set of folios. This poster was created from those folios. It’s a great tribute to the beginning of today’s natural history museums. All of this and more is presented in an informative inset at the bottom of the poster. by proteamundi

Most consisted of the new testament covered with metal plates and were kept in a soldier's shirt pocket, over his heart.

“People were intrinsically selfish, and many hated the idea of a woman in charge of the Institute. They would not put themselves at risk for her. Only a few weeks ago he would have said the same thing about himself.

Giving Aokigahara forest a run for its money as creepiest place ever is Mount Everest. One of the worst things about scaling Mount Everest, besides the lack of oxygen & hellish conditions, are the dead bodies everywhere. Over 200 people have died in the attempt, and most are still there. The same conditions that make it so dangerous to survive the climb also help preserve the dead bodies. Recovering the dead would be a dangerous and expensive risk. Often the bodies are used as landmarks. by olga

Rhinos really don't see well ... not at all! The record-sized white rhinoceros was about 4,500 kg (10,000 lb). And, they run faster than rabbits can race along the ground. When you are that big, you don't worry about what you might run into. In fact there is an unusual genius within the nature of us all to look at something that is huge, and read between the lines as to whether or not we should attempt to stand in it's way. Maybe this critter should be the new mascot of the American Patriot! by AislingH
