In 2006 we made this little burger meal for a competition on Craftster.org. It got quite a bit of online traffic at the time. Couldn’t find the links, so I re-edited and uploaded these for Parisa.
Me and Mr L put it together, and all the food was edible: baby onion, american cheese, baby gherkin, homemade bun, handcut fries. I made the tray and the drink out of polymer clay and printed up the Craftster branding.
oh my god
Great scene, and based on an actual historical incident in medieval Germany:
When King Conrad III defeated the Duke of Welf (in the year 1140) and placed Weinsberg under siege, the wives of the besieged castle negotiated a surrender which granted them the right to leave with whatever they could carry on their shoulders. The king allowed them that much. Leaving everything else aside, each woman took her own husband on her shoulders and carried him out. When the king’s people saw what was happening, many of them said that that was not what had been meant and wanted to put a stop to it. But the king laughed and accepted the women’s clever trick. “A king” he said, “should always stand by his word.”
Medieval women were BAMFs.
I can’t express enough my love for this.
OMG i couldn’t figure out why Eugene was hiding and then it hit me.
(CNN) — Uncertainly over the fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was further compounded Saturday by reports that two men whose names matched those on the passenger manifest had reported their passports stolen.
After the airline released a manifest of the 239 people on the plane, Austria denied that one of its citizens was on the flight as the list had stated. The Austrian citizen was safe and sound, and his passport had been stolen two years ago, Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Weiss said.
Similarly, Italy’s foreign ministry confirmed that no Italians were on the flight, even though an Italian was listed on the manifest. Malaysian officials said they were aware of reports that the Italian’s passport was also stolen but had not confirmed it.
On Saturday, Italian police visited the home of the parents of Luigi Maraldi, the man whose name appeared on the manifest. The police official said that Maraldi had reported his passport stolen in Malaysia last August and had obtained a new one.
Update: Two people who boarded Flight 370 using stolen passports appear to have bought their tickets together, records show.
I’m interrupting my no-tumblr clause for 24/7 to reblog this. I could have been on that flight. My family members and friends could have been on that fateful flight.
*Praying that the lost plane will be found soon enough and the passengers will get out alive and well. If this was an act of terrorism, i hope those two men who stole the passports and faked their identities will not get away unscathed.
Godspeed. And have faith. You are all in my prayers. Ameen.
oh this is delightful. [x]
