This is for strictly mildly interesting material. If it's too interesting, it doesn't belong. If it's not interesting, it doesn't belong.

This is obviously an objective criteria, so the mods are always right. Or maybe mildly right? Ahh.. what do we know?

Just post some stuff and don't spam.

Vagalinski noted that the discovery was made in the Cloaca Maxima sewer, where archaeologists hardly expected to find anything.

Somehow, I don't think they'll consider them works of art worth preserving.

I'm picturing the god of having little wings growing out of your ankles getting cancelled.

From wiki: "Most scholars derive "Hermes" from Greek ἕρμα (herma),[14] "stone heap."[3]: 177 "

Seems about right.
