Cabinet of noses on display in a museum in Denmark:

Image


The noses on statues were the most vulnerable parts for breakage, so in the 19th century there were replacements made from marble or plaster and put into place because the value of even an ancient statue was in part based on its completeness.

Later starting in the 20th century curators wanted more authenticity so the fake noses were removed--hence this collection.

The good news is that, other than a massive delay, the fuselage at that stage is really just a tin can with windows. All three were probably scrapped, but it likely cost no more than a few million total.

I hated english and didn't care to pay attention to it while in school so most of those maps that are trying to describe the differences between pronunciations of a vowel is lost on me. (I'd so get my butt kicked on smarter than a 5th grader anything english related!)

However when I moved from Milwaukee to Iowa, Soda (pop), Bubbler (fountain) and Bags from a grocer (knapsacks) were all foreign to them. When I moved back to Wisconsin the only thing I changed saying was soda, but I don't refer to it as pop ethier, I call it one combined word now, sodapop.

I find it really annoying when people call it "pop".

What do you call it when it's flat? It's certainly not popping.

BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - A bourbon barrel storage facility has collapsed in Bardstown, and crews are assessing the damage.

WLKY is reporting the building collapsed at the Barton 1792 Distillery around 11 a.m. Friday. No one was injured in the collapse.

Nelson County Emergency Management spokesman Milt Spalding says about 9,000 barrels filled with aging bourbon were affected Friday at the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown.

Spalding says there were no injuries inside the structure, which was holding about 20,000 barrels. Half the structure remains standing.

Bardstown Fire Chief Billy Mattingly says the remainder of the building, which was built in the 1940s, is very unstable and at risk of collapsing too. A crew had been making repairs to the facility.

The Environmental Protection Agency is at the scene along with county firefighters. The EPA is looking at a nearby creek where bourbon may have spilled.

The distillery announced it will close its visitor center and not offer tours for the rest of Friday. It plans to reopen tomorrow morning.

WKYT will have reports from Bardstown on-air beginning at 4:00 p.m., and this story will continue to updated.

Hot Dog Water in its absurdity hopes to encourage critical thinking related to product marketing and the significant role it can play in our purchasing choices.
