Apollo and Daphne Jakob Auer (ca. 1645 - 1706) Vienna, before 1688 Ivory In his Metamorphoses, Ovid tells of the nymph Daphne, who eluded the desires of the sun god Apollo by turning herself into a laurel tree (Greek daphne, laurel).The two-figure group depicts the beginning of this transformation. In travel reports from the Baroque period, this virtuoso piece of carving was already considered a major work of the Viennese imperial treasury.

During Hurricane Ike in 2008, dozens of caskets surfaced from graves in Orange, Texas. They literally floated to the surface.

I let this hot girl go ahead of me in line at Starbucks, but she didn't want to have sex with me on the spot. I was going to yell at her, but I didn't because I thought she might be a feminist. So, I just ran home and cried and played Call of Duty. It got worse when I found out I was out of Mountain Dew.


That feminasty friendzoned you after your obviously sex worthy act, intimidated you into silence, and then probably stole your dew. I bet she was the player that teabagged you in cod, too.

Typical. You gotta stay strong, bro. I’ll be praying to Dawkins for you

My mom put these flowers in my dad’s beard in 1977. This is my favorite picture of him. :)
