LOTR observations ( obvious spoilers)

After years of being a subpar fantasy fan, I’ve finally gotten around to listening to Fellowship of the Ring on audiobook because I have a very boring summer job and a kindle unlimited free trial. I’ve watched the movies, but it’s been long enough that I only remember vague important plot points. I have very mixed feelings, many of which have been affected by recently finishing ASOIAF.  In no particular order:

The concept is bizarre, combining a building material from the time of Julius Caesar with a Jetsons aesthetic, but the approach has already worked before.

This newly-revived technique could provide low-cost housing for refugees and displaced people, and generally provide architects with a cost-effective way to explore convex construction.

Oldest known picture of a sneeze – 1902

im laughin so fuckin hard
can you imagine how upset literally everybody in that room musta been after this happened
it took a long time to take photographs back then i bet there was a collective of nothin but sighing echoing through the room


It didn’t take a long time to take photographs by 1902, though. By then camera speed was enough to capture moving objects without horrid blur (given enough light, anyway.) Sneezes last for just seconds so if they took a long time this picture wouldn’t have been captured at all, you’d just have a blur all over her face (and possibly body, too, since she seems to have bent forward with the sneeze.)
