Here me out. This is no ordinary brass ball valve. It’s nearly 2000 years old and was encased in volcanic ash for most of that time. Neat.


Visited the Pompeii exhibit today. Some ingesting stuff like how advanced their metal working was including boilers and underfloor heating. Some interesting stuff like how much they liked porno and hookers (A lot, it turns out) and some kinda sad like the hallow cavities of bodies frozen in time like this doggo who’s cast was made from such a void.

They also had casts of infants, children and adults but I decided against pictures of those. You could see facial expressions and... Yeah no.


Overall very interesting
