The specimen was put on display at the city's Archaeological Resource Centre (now known as DIG), the outreach and education institution run by the York Archaeological Trust.[2] In 2003, it broke into three pieces after being dropped whilst on exhibition to a party of visitors. As of 2003, efforts were underway to reconstruct it.


Hence the term, 'Getting our shit together.'

I'm guessing it broke at the breathing rings.

The Queen's Beasts. Made of plaster for the Coronation, then sent to Canada. The Canadians coloured them in for their centennial, presumably for children's television.

Via Shutup & Sitdown's weekly update, a fascinating read about the game of Suffragetto, your tabletop female emancipation simulation.

Quote:
Although both the police and suffragettes technically move in the same way, the instructions specify their moves using different language; that is, while police arrest suffragettes, suffragettes disable police through jiu-jitsu. Disable is a technical term used in martial arts when an opponent is neutralized. So while the game instructions do not specify that suffragettes use jiu-jitsu, it is encoded in the rules.

Snopes are a great source of "I can't believe there are people who thought this was real" news. Such as: Did St. Patrick Wipe Out an African ‘Pygmy’ Tribe, the First Inhabitants of Ireland?

Working fine here.

I remember spending night shifts years ago browsing Snopes, mainly looking for the odd stuff that turned out to be true.
