All the naysayers who were against marijuana legalization are eating crow right about now. Colorado’s weed sales just keep trending up, and with the sales of legal weed, they are improving their schools and reducing overall crime rates.”

WOW IT’S ALMOST LIKE IF YOU LEGALIZE WEED

PEOPLE WON’T DO BAD THINGS

TO GET WEED

Shit

My favorite headline from this trend has been “Six Months Since Marijuana Legalization and Colorado is Overrun With Way Less Crime”.

Nelson Boarding a Captured Ship, 20 November 1777, by Richard Westall (1806)


I was going to make some smart-arse remark about that being the most casual stepping into a boat on a choppy sea I’ve ever seen, but then I looked closer, and… is Nelson’s hat… fore and aft?!!
Sacrilege. SACRILEGE, I SAY.


Someone explain these hats to me please. I’m confuzzled.

The bicorn wasn’t really worn fore-and-aft for like 30 more years and Nelson is usually depicted with it athwart (side to side.)

And, if I remember right, in the Aubrey/Maturin novels, Jack wears his bicorn athwart as a tribute to Nelson.

I have not read those yet so I didn’t know that!! Awesome!

This well-known classical piece, See The Conquering Hero Comes, was written by Handel for the Duke of Cumberland, celebrating his victory at Culloden in 1746, and the end of the final Jacobite Rebellion. Handel was a great admirer of Britain’s Hanoverian monarchy.

Café Le Procope is the oldest restaurant of Paris, founded in 1686. Among its famous clientele over the centuries were Rousseau, VoltaireBalzac, Victor Hugo, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and many more. During the turbulent years of the French Revolution, the café provided the backdrop for meetings between such notables as Robespierre, DantonMarat and the Cordeliers. Legend has it that Napoleon Bonaparte, then a young officer, once left his hat as collateral when he could not settle his bar tab.
